When you have a yellow banner inside the morale level box, it means the morale level is higher than average (hardened or superior). If there is a red line over the yellow banner, it means the morale level is lower than average (green or rabble). If there is no yellow banner, the morale level is simp...

So many crashes and freezes at a very beginning of the game are worth of the following tests: - disable play Logo, Sound and Musics options in the Setup tool - this will let you save a lot of precious RAM; - play the game in Windowed mode (still via Setup tool) - this will prevent TSR programs (Anti...

No, the allowed resolutions are 1024x768 and 800x600, that can be set in the Setup tool.

I confirtm the opinion of Primasprit is right. Uninstall the codec and disable the 'play logo' option in the Setup tool.

To my opinion the reason is the typing of the Customer Name.
I'm going to investigate.

For those who read the forum: do not type the Customer Name for the time being.

The game is real time (like the EU series), with no apparant autopause...you have to keep pausing manually (which is tricky on my Vaio due to a Fn key needed to toggle the Pause key). There does not seem to be a pause button in game (although there might supposed to be one? See graphics issues abov...

And on top of that, may be largely due to the DivX bundled witht the software and not the actual game itself (although I dunno, I was still having serious issues after uninstalling the DivX, on the theory that's it's only purpose was to run the opening video). But the readme does speak of problems ...

You probably have an antivirus/firewall tool installed, such as Norton Antivirus for example.
GI is almost totally not compatible with some antivirus/firewall tools.

I like to see a game designed long time ago by Philippe, "La Grande Guerre 14-18". The entire WWI with all (really all!!) aspects of this conflict. As Boardgame, it is one of the best I have ever seen. Although it is rather unrealistic to do it as PC-Game because of the lots of "chrome" rules, and ...

OK that's it for my second question. Just don't know how I should have known that the Burgondes are raiders (if they are one of my countries they are greyed out on the small icon at the top but if they are not ...) ? Raider nations have the small shield (that one on the top middle part of the inter...

Btw what do you think of the 'official mod' ? What are the Pros and Cons of using it ? As you can find inside GI forum, the Official mods give a different graphic flavor to the game. Anyway, one of the most outstanding features is the AI tweaking: you will have barbarian tribes following more faith...

How far does this extend the timeline? I don't remember now which were the timeline purposes of that scenario. Maybe it could be till 1199?

Yes, the param name is a bit confusing. It sets the frequecy delay in milliseconds for the map scroll chek. That's to say, a value of 100 means that the map engine checks every 100 milliseconds if the mouse pointer is along the video boundaries in order to check if it has to perform the map scroll. ...

Yes, they will work. One little problem only: * the Strategy First version will be 1.06d * the latest official mods 1.06c will overwrite the GI.ini file, which contains the version number. * so, once installed the mods, open the GI.ini file with a text editor (e.g. UltraEdit) and change the version ...

Mark, The installer allows you to pick whatever language you wish (from the 6 included already) SFI will have the latest version, which is indeed 1.06c. The UK version is older (although it is patchable :sourcil: ) There are no Starforce or anything as annoying in the game, just plain enjoyment :co...

The href of screenshots' thumbnails are wrong, they all link to the gallery.html file... so there's no way to open the images.
