Re: WON Public Beta patch February 24th - 2017

The destination folder for patches is the installation folder for the game. Have you installed into the correct folder? I always suggest doing a fresh install when patching. I never install one patch over another, even if it ought to work. Sometimes with patches the version parameter in the System.o...

Re: How do I sue for peace?

What nation are you playing?

I sounds like Austria is doing far better than you in the war, even if you have captured Vienna and Prague.

Has Austria or her allies captured any of your territory?

Re: Posture question to attack an other region when ennemy is already in the start region

In all my enthusiasm to explain the technical side if this maneuver, I forgot the most important part :tournepas Tactically it's a very bad idea to bypass an enemy and leave him on your line of communication. It's begging for disaster and against military doctrine. If the enemy reinforces region A a...

Re: Indians

I just noticed that it is possible to recruit indians that come with their chiefs. I saw 3 chiefs at the start of game out in the far west. But after a few turns, they've disappeared. The AI can allow them to move around sometimes. As long as they are neutral, the only thing that can happen, is if ...

Re: Posture question to attack an other region when ennemy is already in the start region

There are several things you have to consider in this case. If you are playing CW2 or a newer game, the auto-OP rule has to be considered. I'm assuming that this is the case. The auto-OP rule states, that if your stack finds itself in a region --whether it starts there, or it is move into it-- where...

Re: Loaned Spanish fleet can't be returned?

I found a workaround for the Spanish ships being locked in French control. It should also work with any other nation, which has lent units to France. - France sends a Request Expeditionary Fleet treaty to Spain. > Turn execution - Spain picks a naval stack with at least 1 ship unit in it --only one ...

Well Cpt O I must disagree. As Russia I have two Swedish fleets as 'loaners.'

You may also mix them into...

Re: Loaned Spanish fleet can't be returned?

There is definitely a 48 turn period for the Lend-Stack Treaties. I assume it should work in that after 48 turns the Lent Units revert to their owner-nation's control. Apparently there is a bug in this. Nation's are only allowed to Lend to each allied nation one Land-Stack and one Fleet-Stack at a t...
