Re: Defence Scheme No. 1

No idea if this is a bug of the engine or not, but the USA made peace with the CSA after I made peace with the USA myself. Strangely enough, when I look at the treaties screen there is no "armistice" so, given that both countries hold objective towns of the other, I expect them to commence...

Re: Defence Scheme No. 1

I don't know if it was a bug or not, but it was impossible to make the warscore rise enough and even if I had enough points the USA was never agreeing to my terms. By the end of 1863 I had conquered every possible objective and strategic town the US had. The Southern ones were automatically given to...

Re: Defence Scheme No. 1

Sometimes I love to hate the AI. It did NOT agree on my terms so the war drags now well into 1863 . And although I seized most of the critical objective towns of the USA, they war score is now lower than before to get Dakota and Montana. So my only hope is the counteroffers the AI every second turn,...

Finally, after a couple more weeks the needed war score is reached. I could in theory continue the conflict, but I really want to end this war as most or my regular troops are in the United States and Canada instead of the various hotspots on earth.

Re: Defence Scheme No. 1

Well, it's September 1862 and Great Britain has managed to prevail. But to be honest, this war is almost won in circa 1,5 year with a great deal of forces' relocation from the home islands to Canada, as well as some really important naval victories the moment the conflict started in 1861. As I said ...

Defence Scheme No. 1

So, it is March 1861 . Playing as the Great Britain and its Colonies, I am about to do a hat trick of epic proportions by mimicking the Defence Scheme No. 1 of some 60 years later. https://i.ibb.co/3vgfhvK/20210522212554-1.jpg https://i.ibb.co/r5TcTrj/20210522212630-1.jpg USA pre-Civil War in my gam...

Re: Warscore issue

Possibly. But this is the base game we are talking about and a bug that was not there before. This warscore issue and the non-national regions (101%) automatic change for some colonies were bugs that were introduced later.

I am about to invade the USA as Great Britain from Canada. It just turned 1861 in my game. If the warscore sticks to about 101-116 as I noticed in the wars of AI (or minor mine) so far, it means I won’t be able to ask for the juiciest of American territories or for example to liberate Texas or Calif...

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

May I guess that it uses the same base mechanism as frontage?

I would guess the traffic rule worked in a similar way, but...
