My move as recorded was 34. ...a5. The problem with this is that it creates an illegal pawn capture later. See below about another move recording error.

34...Qxg2+
My next move I recorded 35. Qf3. (?) I obviously missed recording at least a halfmove by White, but I'm recording this close enough to after the game that I can recreate at least the style of endgame I played. I'm showing a longer variation at my move 41 which also demonstrates the same principle.
