Few are the developers which really care about making the best AI possible, whatever it means in time and money spent. Jean-Michel (Histwar) and Dave O'Connors (Panther Games) are among them.

Not in Argentina it wasn't. And neither was U.S. Fruit's dominion of Central America. ;)

Any news on that? After all it could be argued that those conflicts are at least as important, if not more so, for the Rise of Prussia(TM) as the Seven Years War. ;)

Historical play: straightjacketed or free form?

One question that keeps running in my head is how straightjacketed the campaign will be. As I see it there's two extremes: One has fixed events firing at fixed dates. Prussia always declares war on Austrian in 1866. The American Civil War always starts in 1861. On the other side there's the freeform...

My new machine has Vista64 Ultimate, and I have to say the jump from XP wasn't as bad as I feared. I especially love the sidebar ... useful little toy, but it's nice.

I'm very doubtful of the "in place upgrade", though, that promises to keep everything intact from your old OS.
