Re: the inadequacy of the price?

Re: Odd Lockup at start of combat

Just let it run and fight the battle. For me, the battle comes up with no ability to zoom and the ships will accept orde...

Re: Problem with battles makes game unplayable

This is the same problem I addres in the "odd lockup" thread.

I had the problem occasionally, then it stopped, now it occurs on every battle

It is indeed extremely frustrating
