Twilight Struggle in pbem

Hi
We’ve started a TS game in pbem. We’ve ended the 1st turn and we have now to deal the cards for the second turn. The problem is that each player can only deal the cards foe himself and not for the other player. Is there a way to change the mod to authorize dealing the cards for the 2 players?
Many thanks

Why do you need one person to deal cards to both players? Why can’t each player deal their own hand?

Also if the one player deals both hands, they become the defacto owner of the card and see through the mask trait so it would give one player a distinct advantage of knowing what has been dealt to their opponent

at the end of a deck you don’t know how many cards are left. For example in early war, at the end of the deck there is 4 or 3 or 5 cards left. Then you draw your cards but if you draw all the cards left than reshuffle, draw the rest of your cards and then it’s your opposent’s turn, he could have missed very important cards of the first deck. Sorry I don’t know if i’m clear!

Why don’t you know how many cards are left? The default for “maximum cards to display in stack” is 10. This seems like enough.
