When Cntl-RightClick, Can we NOT have the circle move the map around?
Maybe circle the unit for 2-3 sec? if THAT?
What if your opponent is clicking somewhere that is off of your viewing area?

Perhaps it would be more "friendly" if on the opponent's side a popup appeared that said something like, "your opponent has sent a viewport change", then allowed you choose whether to change or ignore. This could perhaps be configurable to "always change" or "always ignore". It also might be coded as always changing, but only after an on-screen warning about what was going to happen. If you do change the viewport at your opponent's behest, it would also be nice to have a button that allows you to restore your previous viewport.

Not an issue. This is the same concept as "center on opponents moves" just apply it to the THIS GUY keybind.
He simply says, "Hey this guy in G5, and you pretty much know which guy when playing the game...about where it is. Most VASL games are on 2 boards and most of the action can be seen. Not many players ZOOM in to the extent they cant see elsewhere."

Just as when you say "X5 fires 12 flat at Z9"
Pretty simple....
But when you are planning more moves and your board is bouncing like a damn seizure, it can get very sidetracked on what you were looking at.

It has long been my issue. With some large CGs, the screen bounces around so much that I feel physically sick after 30 mins.

I find that if you have the VASL image zoom'd to a scale on your screen that there's no "extra space" around the sizes for the image to move with, it will stop moving. IE. If you have your VASL image at 500% on a 22" monitor, will be bouncing all !@#$ day long, but if you have your VASL image shrunk to a size where there's no "give" on the sides, the screen will stop bouncing.
