Problem with undo feature

Post by flowerscandrink » 20 May 2020, 18:21

Whenever a player hits "undo" after completing a turn in which a player has taken the "change first player" spot it doesn't just send it back to the beginning of that turn, it rolls it all the way back to the beginning of the turn before their turn. This is highly unfair as it allows the player(s) to see whether the other person is going to skip the wheel 1 or 2 spaces. It also slows the game way down. It's essentially a soft form of cheating which is allowed given the way it is programmed.

This is a known bug, reported here: https://boardgamearena.com/bug?id=12837

This forum shouldn't really be used for bug reports. That said, it is in fact one of the most highly upvoted bugs on BGA. I know these are famous last words, but it shouldn't be too hard to fix. There is a command to explicitly set the undo restore point, and it's likely the original developer just didn't think to add it after the first player time advance is resolved. I might take a look at it this weekend, but based on some other forum posts, admins might have a few proposed fixes already.
