    Hi

    I'm playing a LAN game and find the following quite annoying:

    When it's my turn, i get the message that the enemy attacks me. However i can't watch the combat most of the times because the building queue comes up, or the science advisor asking for the next tech. By the time i made my choice, the combat is long over and i have to search the map to see which units were hurt or lost.

    Is there anyway to have the battles resolved and animated first and the building choices coming up after that?

    Does anybody have the same problem?

    Greetings,

    Rince

    Turn on Minimize Pop-Ups in the Options menu, Game tab.

    Hey thanks. It works.

    Naming the option "minimize popus" is not very appropriate IMHO. You still have the same number of popups, it's just that the order changes. First unit movement and then building decisions.

    I wonder why it is an option at all. Can't imagine that anybody would like to choose builings first and then look at the combat results.

    In a way it's not actually the sequence of player action which is problematic. It's the fact that the in-between-turns action take place (or are displayed) when it's already the players turn.

    Well, it's not like you can influence the results in any way.
