Skipped Turns ... what to know about?
This issue took a looong time to fix properly, i.e. without braking other stuff in Robocode and still fix all the observed issues. Sorry for that.
I have made an 1.8.1 Alpha 2 version of Robocode you can try out here: http://robocode.sourceforge.net/files/robocode-22.214.171.124-Alpha-2-setup.jar
Please check this version out and see if all issues regarding skipped turns have been solved properly. :-)
