Re: Stars Fell on Alabama - An America AAR

Hi. I am going to have to suspend my AAR. I'm an American secondary school teacher (ages 14-18 approximately), the school year started in mid-August, and the start of the school year has led to many new challenges, new programs -- if interested, one thing we are involved in is this -- https://ldc.or...

Around the world with Joe Johnston

Early January, 1876, the centennial year of the Declaration of Independence. John sat on his porch reading the news: Peace with Spain! He thought back on a year of war and of an extraordinary journey completed. And he thought of desperate times in Alabama. In January, the US 5th Division took Palawa...

Joseph Johnston's Odyssey

1874 was a momentous year in Alabama. After years of Republican control of the state government, the Democrats took back control of the state, electing a Democratic governor and a Democratic majority in the state legislature. These were desperate times for the state. It was millions of dollars in de...

Back to Texas, and Custer arrives

1873 John's son Isaac came back for his young wife in January. After going to see his wife at her father's house, he came to talk to his father. "She refused to go with me," Isaac told John. "She said she isn't going to leave -- how did she put it -- 'the comfort of my father's house ...

1872

1872 1872 had been a relatively calm year. The partisan fighting after the war had nearly died out. It had turned mainly to political fighting as factions fought for control in Alabama. The big planters against small farmers and workers. Freedmen fighting an increasingly difficult battle for their r...

Gone to Texas

1871 The letter came to John in March. John knew that San Juan had finally fallen when a corps commander, tired of waiting for Buell to give the command, had ordered an assault on San Juan on his own initiative. The Spanish garison had quickly surrendered. At this point the US held Puerto Rico, half...

January 1, 1871 John sat on his porch reading the letter from his younger brother, Isaac. Isaac had always had an eye for adventure. He had served through the Civil War with John but had been unhappy back home trying to be a farmer. He kept talking about going to Texas. He and John had talked severa...

Re: The diplomatic crisis game

Thanks for all the replies. I imagine I played too passively. I'm much stronger than Mexico. My Civil War armies are still constituted minus a few corps that were automatically disbanded after the war ended. But I have a lot of them on the East coast because I am planning an invasion of Cuba. I real...

The diplomatic crisis game

Is there a good description somewhere of how to play a diplomatic crisis? I just had one with Mexico as the US and once again came out on the short end. It still doesn't really make sense to me. So I'm wondering if there is a diplomatic crisis game for idiots guide anywhere. Thanks.

I don't understand fully, but it has to do with userpath.ini. You can read my post from a while back at the link, but I do not necessarily recommend this for anyone else.

Re: Pride of Nations has been updated to Version 1.04.5!

I think the game may be more stable or use somewhat fewer resources now. In my AAR game I was having a problem where I had to close the game and restart after a certain number of turns or have a crash to the main menu. Oddly that happened every sixth turn. In peaceful times I am running three months...
