385 5/3/2019 12:45:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Wait. This doesn't make sense.

Bill - please double check your move here. The A/N battle for Rabaul is AP 4, +1 (11AF LRB) vs JP 45, 0 (or 53, 0 after I move the Takao in - which means that AP cannot win the A/N battle, and that means that the amphibious landing 14 Corps cannot go in - will be automatically turned back.

Am I missing something?

I am saving the logfile for now - please confirm that you the move is what you intended, Bill.
384 5/3/2019 12:40:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Battle C - I just saw that you also have a ground unit there, which I had overlooked before. As a result, JP will also make the following reaction move:

378 4/23/2019 12:18:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Okay! Lots of green tea pays off, and the JP are awake.

Before I do R&R - can we clarify that even though they are outside a JP ZOI, I can react to Ponape and Kusaie, because the Intelligence Condition is Intercept? Or is it impossible for me to get units there because neither hex is a declared battle hex, and neither is eligible for Special Reaction (since no JP ZOI)?

By the way, I just saw that there is a new version 5.0 of the Vassal module. I am sticking the module and user guide in the dropbox folder for convenience. I'll take a look but suggest that we both switch to this newer version, which is supposed to be backwards compatible.

363 4/12/2019 3:19:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Manfred, I've dropped a new log file that adjusts the dead pool (we deleted Enterprise and Wasp instead of sending them to the deadpool) and marks the used ASPs I used during my card play..
362 4/12/2019 12:41:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Bill,
I've dropped a new logfile fixing the issues we found:

1. sent to dead pool 2-step Marine unit in A/K, leaving reduced Army Corps
2. Shokaku to Truk and Takao to Tokyo (were in non-port hexes)
3. Akagi to Tokyo (could not reach Truk from 4502)

Please take a look. And then, should we resume the game? I'd love to.

354 6/1/2018 9:38:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Manfred,

A couple more things:

1st, you had Akagi PBM from 4502 to Truk, but that's 17 hexes away and your PBM limit is 15 hexes.

2nd, you PBMed (Shokaku) to Ponape and (Takao) to Wake, but those aren't ports and ships must live in ports. FWIW, I noticed that before this card play you had Akagi posted in Guam which is also not a port.

I'm sorry I didn't notice this before...
