I created the new game Overextension
When I first created it I left the checkbox unchecked ‘only allow random civ selection’
(This was to allow individuals to choose a civ, even if we never/rarely ever do that)
Semental then joined, but said he was unable to select ‘Random’ so made an arbitrary choice.
I then edited the game, making only the change of now ticking checkbox ‘only allow random civ selection’. This had the effect of changing Semental’s civ to Random.
Now Dogboy reported the following:
“I can’t join. PYDT auto selects Alexander of Macedon for me. I can’t change it to anything else, and I can’t change it to random. When I try to join an error message says “you can only join this game as a random civ!”. But I can’t select random.”
