Re: Problems with a fresh install and latest patch

I'd suggest open a formal request with Matrix - at: http://www.matrixgames.com/support/

they are good at resolving these legacy problems but it may need them to change your keys or whatever.

I had this with AJE and they sorted it out really quickly

Re: What is the best way to set up my brigades?

The advice about not forming Gds brigades is driven by knowledge of the combat engine. Part of this is it selects targets and sets up brigades (and loose battalions) for combat. The largest (in terms of combat power) is selected first so if your Gds brigade is in a standad corps it will be in combat...

Re: What is the best way to set up my brigades?

also a brigade of 4 elite formations will attract a lot of attention on the battlefield - the targetting algorithm tends to go for the strongest stack. So it'll win a lot but take heavy losses in very hard to replace units. Main issue - esp with the Austrians - is the light infantry. Convention (if ...

Re: Is the 1.4 or 1.45 patch all inclusive?

You shouldn't. Others have reported problems with a GG installation but its not universal. Mine is from GG and patched to 1.4.5 with no problems (which is no re-assurance if you are having problems).

Best to post the actual issue you are having and any messages etc in the tech support forum

Think that going for Spain makes sense. The sugar from Puerto Rico and Cuba is potentially very valuable. If I recall the Azores is also treated as a colony and thus ripe to claim (and of course a very good naval base for European or African adventures). Ships can be a bit misleading at this stage. ...

Re: education percentage

But it also means that militancy can rise (or the effect worsen)....
