How to go on the strategic offensive; the game as history

After playing Revolution Under Siege and being enchanted by the huge playmap and variety of units, I have to say I'm much chagrined at how little the game seems to be going for my side, the Reds, vs. history. I put together a corps of some of my best units, put it under the command of Kamenev, suppo...

Pontiac's War Scenario

(Moved from Birth of America) If you don't want to wind up blowing a lot of time, don't start playing the Pontiac's War scenario. It's very addicting - especially if you, like myself, have spent a lot of time in western New York and Pennsylvania and are very familiar with the area. I've played it ab...

I notice that my downloaded files seem to switch back and forth from '.hst' to '.trn'. Are they supposed to do that?

I think I'm talking about the same game. My opponet has emailed me a .hst file and an .trn file - neither of which show up in my Saved Games when I boot up the game.

Mr. Altaris, there are some rough spots to be straightened out with the NATO symbols and avatars, but I am certainly intrigued. Certainly the sea war system needed simplification - in the 'vanilla' version it seemed you had a clash only if you wrote your opponent "Meet me off the White Cliffs of Dov...

Ahem...how do you select warplans? My "warplans" display comes up empty on the first turn and the second. Which is odd, nothing can be done on the 4th July 1914 turn.

CP Italy

I've always been intrigued by possibility of Italy entering on the Central Powers side. Yes, it would have been possible if Austria-Hungary had made territorial concessions in the wake of the Bosnian annexations in 1908, as required by the Triple Alliance treaty. Such concessions done at that time m...

One thing the Republican side could have being able to ally with Anarchists and POUM units, but only at a ongoing cost of morale. Like the Reds/Anarchists in Revolution Under Siege. The game really ought to show this war from the Communist viewpoint, bastards that they were, as well.

I'm rather concerned. I was besieging Zaragoza as the Republicans. I had three divisions, plus lots of artillery and armor. Engineers, communication, medical unit and plenty of supply. I would attack when there was a breach; go on defense if there was not. Month after month the city managed to hold ...

Will Not Stop Processing "Loading Master File"

I have been playing China, and have gotten up to Early November 1895.

When I hit the 'Proceed To Next Turn" the program files through the various other nations, then gets to "Loading Master File" and 'spins' - never gets to "Processing Day."

Please assist. I don't want to discard the game.

Thank you, Jim. I suspect it's something like that. I don't know if all the time I've poured into China will come with the big anti-European colonial climax that I was looking for. My diplomatic leadership is still minimal, although I could improve it if I wanted. I'm more concerned that my ability ...

I've gotten to 1895 playing China.

- I presume you mean contentment, not National Morale? If you are not in a war that should revert towards 100 over time in any case, unless there is a Chinese event chain that I've missed (very likely as my knowledge of 19C Chinese history is not far over zero)

Yes, I did mean National Morale.

Thank you for your quick response. The populace is giving me a 97% approval rate, according to the Assets Balance. And having built all rice farms save two at this point, among other agricultural developments, everyone in the Middle Kingdom should have plenty to eat.
