41 9/6/2020 1:09:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message I'll let you do the restart in ASCT. Can you clean out the drop box folder as well.

39 9/5/2020 9:12:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message Hey Dave,
Just checked it. It didn't move on my file (26). I think you might have accidentally moved it before you started the .vlog file? You might have been figuring out what you wanted to react with? Anyway, lets do a re-start, as that is a big change, and I think we both would have done things a lot differently.
38 9/5/2020 8:23:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message I just noticed something. 6AD which had been sitting in Admin Islands starts the scenerio in Wewak and I have not used it to react with or move in an operation. In went back and looked at the files and somehow it moved between 26 and 27 it was moved to the Admin Islands. Hmmm
