80 5/26/2020 5:33:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Message Also, would you please double check the SW - the logfile matches the last ACTS entry (#66), but your last play seemed to indicate that that log entry is not correct.

79 5/26/2020 5:31:00 PM Fall 1861 Confederate Play Strategy card as Operations #128: 3 / Union Naval Supply Shortage
The Union blockade level is decreased by one. Remove from deck if event is played.

Message from Confederate:
CSA will activate AoT, n5 move to Clarksville; flip PC, move to Dover; flip PC, move to Paducah. I don't think Pope can intercept or retreat, so unless you have a card to counter the move, please conduct the battle.

I have saved a new logfile that is a redo of my move. Obviously, this will affect your move as well. Thanks for getting the logfiles right and keeping the game on track.

Yeah, I am not sure why this logfile has been an issue. I am module 3.1 and VASSAL 3.2.17. I will replay my hand since I have the AoT already formed.

SW is a little different. I went back and checked/updated it.
Also, your last move created AOT. You had done this already. So you can revise your move and I might change mine as a result.

There seems to be some problem with the log files. All of mine load fine, but yours load intermittently. I'm using the latest version of the FTP module.
