Timestamp Wed Jun 19 00:42:32 EDT 2013

Simulatenous physical, individual init.

Charging a (princess) bot's unit at the edge of the map.
During physical declare phase, effects of charge are already applied. Bot's unit is off the map, charging unit is where the charged unit was. Charged unit, off the map, game is waiting for bot to give it physical attack orders.
Bot disconnects. Won't do anything when reconnected. Game stuck.

    Saving the game at this point and reloading it causes megamek to detect that the turn is actually over. The charged unit did get to make its physical.

    simulatenous physicals is an unofficial option, which makes this post-stable.

    Hammer and I have been trying to reproduce this issue with no luck. I have a feeling that there is additional important information required. Was "skip ineligible during physical" turned on?

    A logfile would really help. The way the code is written, when you complete your turn it adds the action into a collection and when the phase is over it goes through that collection and processes the actions. Physical attack actions all get processed at the same time at the end of the physical attack phase.

    If you had skip ineligible on, maybe everyone got skipped? As for why Princess disconnected, there should be an error in the logfile and without that we can't do much.
