Re: CSA PBEM winning strategy?

The prevailing doctrine states, that you can either win through morale hit by taking the US capital or by victory points, if you manage to keep enough vp sites long enough. All other approaches seem to fail sooner or later, like an offensive approach in the Western theatres. The former is normally a...

Re: How to stop white peace?

Another not so helpful detail :P If I remember correctly, this has been a request by players, so that wars couldn't go endlessly anymore and eat off National Morale. But that is a long time ago, so I might be wrong. Best shot is still to invade the opponents national territory in a war. However, as ...

Re: Adding music

What I did was to add a mp3 file "MySong.mp3 and rename the file "NCP_MySong.mp3" and add a line in the music.ini file which contains 43 titles. The last line of the file reads: Music43 = NCP_theme.mp3 So I added : Music44 = NCP_MySong.mp3 And apparently it didn't work. But as I said...

Re: Objective cities [F9]

1) Objectives can change 2) Basically there are only two sides, Alliance and Coalition. The fact that there are multiple nations that can switch sides or don't need to take sides at all and still win by VP is a flaw in design, imho. You have an engine that comes from 1 vs 1 and tries to overcome thi...

Re: Tolstoi's Война и миръ (war and peace)

War and Peace is a wonderful portrait of Russian people and society of that time. It was meant as such, just like Anna Karennina. As others stated, it is not so much a warbook. However, though fictional, it still adds much to understanding the era. Clausewitz, btw, must be read with prudence, too. A...

Re: un-merging two armies

Afaik there is no convenient way.
But then again I mostly don't keep the original setup anyways, because from a powergaming point of view it rarely meets the optimum.

Re: Peace offer

The higher the grade of organization of a country is, the higher is the impact of an annexation. Annexing Laos is ok while annexing the Sarre region will get you hatemail. Annexing Alsace for the Prussians on the other hand would be of lesser impact (other than in France) because they have a claim o...

Re: Peace offer

PON is not quite a "tint-the-world-in-my-color" game. You can only claim regions in a peace deal that either - border to one of your National Regions (not Colonial 101% regions as far as I know) - have a majority of your national population (French, in your case) - regions of tribal states...

Correct.
Either the AI for that specific country is being turned off or the host does a save, so that the AI doesnt take over during turn resolution.

Re: The perfect grand strategy game ?

In the case of PON there is a host file and turn files for every country. Everybody opens his/her turn file simultaneously, does their turn and saves it, wich produces an orders file. This orders file is being sent back to the host or put into dropbox. Then the host puts all in the same save folder ...

Re: Interested in a Civil War II Gold version?

Lifting restrictions is never an addition, but a substraction wich normally favours the stronger side unproportionally. The seniority system e.g....
