Q: When I buy/sell units or houses, it sometimes doubles the amount I typed!
A: There is not really an answer to why this is happening. As far as we know, it seems like if ZoneAlarm, the firewall software, can be guilty for this. It seems as if it does not like to receive compressed html/php documents, wich the defcon5 webserver sends out, if your browser says it can handle it. A solution might be to disable/reconfigure ZoneAlarm or similiar.
Q: Why can't I calculate how many points I get when attacking?!
