Re: The latest patch has greatly imporved the game.

Well I just landed a 2500 power stack of Indian Colonial troops on Hong Kong. Six infantry divisions and the rest artillery (perhaps 8-12 units not sure exactly), the theory being massed long range fire from all those 6lb guns will crush the low tech hoards before they get in melee range. If that f...

Thank you for explaining this. Until he dies or is removed, he seems to have the malignant power to crash the game whenever I try to attack him.

Re: The latest patch has greatly imporved the game.

There are some issues with Chinese force pool and events that make Chinese armies monster behemoth. Needs a bit more fixing still :papy: Ah, that makes sense. The forces they attack with are not doomstacks, but they will far outnumber your colonial forces. But it is possible to defeat those monster...

1880 scenario crash while looking at factories, and fields

In starting an 1880 campaign as France, I started out doing what I usually do with this scenario, turning off all factories and mines form the F4 screen, then turning on some of the individual factories, mines, and fields by going to an individual city, clicking on the area that holds the factories,...

That makes a lot of sense. No Russian player worth his vodka is going to take a big prestige hit just to delay a revolt that will happen later anyway.

Re: Repairing destroyed rail lines

Yes, they will auto repair, but it will take time.

But you can command a unit to repair the rails, and if the unit does not move, it should take only one turn. But you will need military control for this to work.

The AI loves to destroy rail lines in your home country.

You may need to have infantry replacements for your army corps to upgrade. I suggest you check the F3 screen and look at infantry replacements. If you see a red number, that is the number of hits that will need to be repaired for the complete upgrade to take place. Red numbers over cavalry, elite, a...

I have used the Force Pool Fix in starting my new game, and I am now at turn 36. No crashes, no problems, and it does seem to work, as the Austrian armies are much smaller than they were in my previous game.

Glad you were able to fix the crash.

The problem of the too powerful Austria has come up again - see Kensai's thread on the Austro-Prussian war.
