Re: Please check mix of towns and counties .

I would second that. That does sound strange!

I suspect that there are a few things that need checking by a native!!

For example, looking at the map of Kent in one of the screen shots Canterbury looks like it's on the North Kent coast! Which it isn't!!

Camel Brigades

Can only seem to create them in the England/Wales. Is this Working as designed or is it a bug? If it is meant to be this way I assume they get the camels from London Zoo?

Otherwise like the game lots, though it has been a lot of palaver getting your games running on my Linux system...

I'm running Linux Mint which is based on Ubuntu. I've tried using Wine and Virtualbox. Most of the games fall over in a heap using VB, and with Wine the latest games are missing the units... Ho hum.

Well, in some ways it's probably good that I can't get the larger games working on my Linux system, as I have more time for other things... But sometimes it would be nice to be able to fire up a few of the games...

Thanks, I have been using 1.02 since I was able to.

I fired PON up in a window last evening and it hasn't crashed since, so I dunno what's going on (though last thing last night I also followed your suggestion and put the PON directory into my AV exceptions file).

I realise it's probably a bit too niche, but I would really like to see a game of The English Civil War! And you could use the same maps for the War of the Roses too, though whether the AGEOD system would work that far back I would be interested to find out.
