Like numdydar, I have no issues running on a laptop pc. takes less than a minute to run a turn. I wonder why you get freezes in RoP, also. I think there must be some issues with your settings or what is running in the background. Perhaps. I've just downloaded Alea Jacta Est demo and it works as it ...

That's odd since I have no issue with scrolling at all and my PC is at least 3-4 years old. What are you running in the background and do you have the most update BIOS/drivers/etc. Yeah, all's fine. I run Civilization 5 on max settings and have no problem at all. Even when I run PoN in 1024x768 I s...

So that would be weird to propose a PON gold without at least significant improvements on this aspect. I've bought PoN and I can't play it because of horrible performance and long turns. So I've payed and have no game. I'd prefer to pay once more and get the game which I'd genuinly like to play, it...

I hope for a better interface and optimized engine.

And for the love of god, greenlight should do those games some justice.

Steam is probably partially corrupting your ROP Gold version by trying to put back original files. I suggest you de-install the game install it through Steam copy the Rise of Prussia game from Steam to another place upgrade it to Gold Ah, to hell with that.

Yeah don't wait for Steam to get the Gold upgrade. I doubt they ever will. Just order the Gold update from AGEOD or Matrix and upgrade your Steam copy of ROP. I did that yesterday and it works fine. I did have to make a copy of my Steam ROP folder and put it in my Matrix games folder and upgraded t...

I've wanted to check if Steam has Gold as DLC but now I can't even find Rise of Prussia page there. I still have it in my library. A pity, I hoped that I'll be able to fully embrace AGEOD strategy games with it.

I think Tolstoy wouldn't really mind if you use just War & Peace. Or can you copyright that name for other medias? If so I'll go get me some rights for games "Bible", "Carried by the wind" and "Thus Spoke Zarathustra".

Personally, I'm not really that convinced that "more accessible gameplay" will automatically lead to higher sales figures. Perhaps the most famous and best selling Paradox game, Europa Universalis III, is also the most complex and least accessible of their recent titles. At the same, we should not ...

Would it be better to say it was simplified and made more abstract? Because that is what seems to have happened.

By the way, is there any specific reason why some AGE games are in Steam (PoN, BoA1 and RoP) and some aren't? I'd sure buy more on Steam - it's hard to get those games other ways in my country and also, you know, everybody has Steam and wouldn't like to have yet another delievery system.

I see a big problem here. If you sell fix for a very slow and buggy game plus couple of features as expansion nobody will like you. But those fixes require much work and adding other features will require even more... Maybe updated rerelease?

Victoria 2 is breathtaking in theory. Every person in the world is simulated, he consumes, produces, fights, thinks about specific problems.

No i don't think so, in the case of Pompey-Caesar, Caesar had 11 Veterans legions in Gaul at start whereas Pompeys had only 7 Veterans legions in Spain, perhaps 2 in Italy (but formerly Caesar legions) and all the other were recruits elsewhere (Syria, Africa, Greece).
