Duplicate of bug #3856.

Fri Jan 16 21:07:53 2009, original submission:

When in hotseat mode (by which I mean local players playing multiplayer on the same computer) at present when you click "End turn" it just goes straight to the opponents turn.

This makes it impossible to switch turns without seeing your opponents position, or vice-versa.

The correct way to do things (as Heroes III did it, mostly), would be to do the following when "End turn" was pressed:
1 Fog the entire map
2 Center the map (so the new player can't see where the previous player was last focusing)
3 Pop up a message box that says something like "Player 2's turn"
4 When the box is clicked Player 2's map is unfogged as appropriate, and the map is centered on where the player left it last turn

I'm new to Wesnoth (and most impressed), but this appears rather glaring to me, as it renders 2 player head-to-head (which I have very fond memories of in Heroes III) essentially unplayable.

Thanks guys!
