Re: A 1866 Save Game, before all hell breaks lose!

If I can manage to make my game run I will continue it, obviously. If not, it's up to you! :siffle:

It's not for the faint of heart, Austria is really powerful in this one and has been in and out of wars with almost every neighbor since the early 50s. Their army is huge and experienced.

A 1866 Save Game, before all hell breaks lose!

I cannot go on with my 1850 game as North German Confederation so here is the save game in 1866 just before all hell breaks lose between Prussia and Austria. :) In this game I witnessed an AI Austria that has become a behemoth. Both Russia and Austria started aggressive wars against a weak Ottoman E...

Re: Error Accessing Game in Windows 10

Understood. Nonetheless, games should follow OSes idiosyncrasies and not the other way around. This is for our security after all. Please take my comment as a suggestion for all future releases, I am pretty aware PON is a 2013 game and Windows 10 is not officially supported. However, this is a uniqu...

Re: Error Accessing Game in Windows 10

Guys, yes, I am an old dog in these forums and I don't want to bug the Philippes for a game that has been loved and supported way more than its natural expected life. But please, don't suggest me to deactivate the UAC. I have done this (momentarily; also others in the other games as you see in the t...

Re: Error Accessing Game in Windows 10

This is much more common than I/we probably thought. Happens in different AGEOD games. I wonder if the culprit has ever been found. Advising to disable the UAC or the antivirus is a little bit extreme, I feel. The game should run normally even without such customization, as all other games.

Re: Error Accessing Game in Windows 10

It is frustrating because it is a new machine. So everything is the latest. More frustrating is that the instability is totally random. I might process 3-4 or even more turns and then, boom, crash. I might reprocess the same turn and it might go on, but it might also block completely. Some more info...

There are three issues here. 1) If it was the UAC, I should be getting this error every single time.

I reinstalled PON on my new Windows 10 game rig hoping to blast through turns. Indeed, turn processing is really fast, but the game is rather unstable. Every few turns, sometimes in a row, it simply crashes giving me this obscure error message. I am obviously the administrator of my PC and the game ...

But will it be fast? What we came to love in AGEOD games is how detailed the stats can be, but this comes to the speed's expense. I personally treasure complexity and speed much more than graphics, at least for this kind of games. :)

If you have reached 150 NM it means that not only you held a lot of territory, but also won enough decisive battles. In my opinion, this combination can and should be a condition to end the game prematurely. You might have not gotten Paris yet, but surely the abstracted morale difference might be a ...

Give the game some turns to do its balance. I don't think that by 1880 the world economy in PON is unbalanced. Actually, I find the opposite problem (too much capital!) much more serious because it "overdrives" the game pace. Remember the little dirty trick of PON: DON'T be a mercantilistic player. ...

If they don't appear in the stats in respect to you, then you are "safe". It means they are probably much lower (or higher, doubtful) than you. I would use the console to switch to them temporarily to see their stats if it was critical. After all, I think that the bug with the invisible map won't al...

May I guess that it uses the same base mechanism as frontage? This could make sense as frontage is the same thing, more or less, but applied to battle. i.e. it tells you which units can effectively fight in a region according to its status. I would guess the traffic rule worked in a similar way, but...

This game is perfect to learn and repass history of the era.

When Belgium is not invaded, Britain should be delayed at least some months, possibly well into 1915.
