1.04.5 not available for Gamersgate or Paradox PON owners

I'm not impressed by this change of policy by Matrix. Up to a few months ago all patches and betas to about 1.04 seemed available to owners of PON who bought through Gamersgate or Paradox or had boxed copies from them. Now the game won't update to 1.04.5 and Matrix are saying tough. Here are two rep...

Re: Is the 1.4 or 1.45 patch all inclusive?

Same issue. Gamersgate version, can't start the grand campaign after the latest patch. Slitherine/Matrix kindly refused my kind request for a new serial (I provided them with proof of purchase, purchase order and confirmation). Gamersgate themselves have so far not answered me. What a bummer. I hav...

Re: A useful House Agreement

Yes, I like it because so many of the places are local - rather like CW2 must be for US residents. I too make house rules for games where there are odd things. One of my favourite games is still the original Combat Mission - but the AI troops have a tendency to do human wave suicide missions to get ...

Re: Why do I have supply here?

The disappearance of the screenshots should serve as a reminder not to store your stuff on the web or the cloud. The narwhal/loki aars were great.

This thread did get me to have a quick play at the 4 emperors too. AJE is a great series. Time to make sure you have some installable back ups.

There is a place in south London called Sydenham.

There is a pub called the Poyntz Arms in West Molesey - a couple of miles from Hampton Court.

Re: Civil War statues

In England some people are calling for the removal of Nelson's column.

I think that is an insult to Nelson Mandela who could have changed the Nelson bit of his name if it actually offended him.

The next turn the confederates were all across the river but so were the Federals. Now I seem to recall that Jomini, among others, di...

Re: Problems with a fresh install and latest patch

Me too.

I have a DVD - "Military Strategies II" with PON on it.

First attempt did the update but it wouldn't work - flashing screens and freeze on selecting a scenario.

So, I uninstalled, and now it won't accept the serial number from the DVD .

Re: Reflections Over a Cuppa

Yes, it seems horribly realistic.

Small armies, and troops that slip off in the night.


A castle near me was apparently beseiged in the Civil War. An initial attack was repulsed so the beseigers settled down.
The beseiged colonel slipped out in the night to see his mistress in the nearby town.

I managed to play a complete game and lose to the Royalists by 6,490 to 642. I tried all I could to get my morale down to below 25 to trigger a sudden defeat but couldn't get it below 58.
