Cintra event

Have pl;ayed through the start of the Spanish campaign twice now and both times the Cintra event message has popped up. The fixed Lisbon garrison arrives but the French force stays in Lisbon. Shouldn't they be getting shipped home?

Thank you again Pocus for all the help, top rate support and to...

Didn't even get to choose what side I wanted to be. Got it to go eventually but it's still crashing when I click n...

I'm telling porkies, I've only had this system since Feb 05. I have also tried running the game with lower quality screen settings, size and colour. Also with no winter textures, memusage set to 15, smallest textures. Still get the dreaded critical error when hitting end turn, or even sometimes when...
