It's possible these two (very) short reports will mean something to the development team, but I'm guessing that there aren't enough details for them to recreate the problems or get them fixed.

Try giving them context, what you were doing, when it happened, what your system is, etc.

Two bug's I've noticed were with Seafaring Halflings picking up all of their tokens and placing them down on the spots they already had. This happened multiple times in a 1v1 with and AI bot.

Second bug I saw was another 1v1 but this is when I was using diplomacy. After my first use of it the dove was grayed out for the rest of the game. I played again with a real person and they were able to use the dove every round.

As a side note, I feel diplomacy shouldn't be in 1v1 games anyway but that's just me.

I can give these 2 things context for him as I saw them also

If you mistakenly click on the chat bubble and then want to close it without typing a message you can't. And if you click on the empty bubble a few times, it boots you. Other players told me this happened to them also

Also, when you start the game, the "ffsshow audio decoder" program (in windows running steam)opens like 25 times in the system tray in the bottom right of the screen. If you run the mouse over it, all but one of them close, but it's at least odd. (And I don't know what ffdshow is, I just moused over it and saw the name, searched that term, and this thread popped up)

About the ffdshow problem, we found some information that could help:

- Go into the "ffdshow audio decoder configuration" in the K-Lite Codec Pack Start Menu folder, and click on DirectShow Control.

- Next you'll use a checkbox for "Don't use ffdshow in:" and an edit button.

- Check the box and click edit to add "SW2Executable.exe".

Let us know how it goes,

Yann
