Dipsy already answered this...but you can still misorder...just turn this off on the mobile...or say that you misordered through the web browser version.


Yes, but I cannot claim any more that I "misordered" BECAUSE the interface is so tiny and my finger so fat.

And apart of that it's always nice when my enemy misorders accidentally.

*with tongue firmly in cheek

Dipsy should just craft a "Random Orders" button to add to the interface. This will activate a nifty piece of AI that Dipsy develops which will calculate totally implausible and foolish moves and enter them. Maybe instead of "Random Orders" the button will read "Plausible Deniability"

:lol: and :roflol:

And this will be set as the default, unless other orders are entered, so no NMRs will ever occur anymore. Problem solved.

All I'm asking for is buttons to press like I illustrated in a previous post. Then it's mobile friendly enough.

Thanks.

Like minds :) I am half way through doing something for mobiles already. It is not quite what you propose but it addresses the same problem. Basically, it lets you choose an option to enter orders through a pulldown menu approach rather than point and click. The current implementation works on a per territory approach although I also wondered about a full menu approach. I thought the latter looked a bit messy though. So at the moment, if you have this option turned on, you click a territory and the menu display pops up. I have tried it on my phone and it is heaps better because you get a nice big 'action' button that pulls down to a column of big actions you can select rather than having to get the old electron microscope out for the dialog boxes. When you then click the action, the line continues with the other relevant boxes, eg if you click MOVE then you get to choose from possible MOVE locations, if you hit CONVOY then you get to choose a from where and to where box etc.


Excellent. Is this up and running yet? Or was the previous announcement about the orders tab refreshing differently something else?
