I really am glad you like it fred. i think we all have known the feeling of getting something and it just won't work or it is really bad. Not saying WW1Gold is, but i know some have had issues.

I remember the worst game I ever got was a game made by Eidos that was kind of an RTS based on Scotland during the Braveheart time. Man, that game was so bad. And they just left it the way it was.

I bought CE tonight, possibly against my better judgment. I want to support the devs who put this together over at DigitalFroggies, and based on the game's good points, they are worth supporting. But the lack of communication and clarity about basic information (has a patch been released? some say yes, some no? how can we tell?) is truly exasperating.

As Queeg and others pointed out, the performance gains are very real. Load times are *much* reduced, which is great. Plus, the game is visually sharper than Gold. I can play at 1920x1080 without eyestrain -- couldn't do that with Gold. These improvements alone are worth the price of admission.

But I can't play for more than a few turns before the game becomes terminally laggy. In that sense, Gold is still way more stable than CE.

I really hope DigitialFroggies can pull their act together. CE has the potential to reinvigorate a truly great game, but I fear the glitches and lack of communication about what is going on with the state of the game is going to scare away potential customers. I held off purchasing because of that, but tonight thought, what the hell, i'll give it a try. CE will be worth every cent of the $20 pricetag, and then some, if the devs can right the ship of what has been a fairly botched initial game release.

WW1 Gold runs on XP, so I'd be surprised if CE doesn't, but I'm not 100% sure.

I just got it on sale, it runs a heck of a lot faster on my laptop, but I haven't had the chance to play much yet.

I have heard from others but cannot confirm myself that CE does not work with XP. I don't know if it doesn't work at all or just runs poorly, but my understanding is that CE and XP don't play well together.

Willing to play pbem in some time either this (gold version) or CE. CE seems a bit faster but didn't play much. And did anyone observe AI improvement mentioned? Does anybody have on going games either pbem or solo, how is it? Is it necessity to play with historical warplans mod by Random.

I've got an ongoing game with the CE, having played a lot of the gold version in the past. I'm not that far in yet, so I cant say yet if the AI is better or not. It does sometimes attack recklessly in my experience. I would like to try it MP sometime, tried it in the past with gold but it was always quite unstable; I wonder if the CE version is better in that department.

Thanks poweraxe,
I have played vs AI until mid 1915 and despite some black textures after a couple turns it ran fine. Reloading the game solves it. About AI, with the third difficulty setting it can ran out of supply&isolated in some theaters but not too bad I think. Especially for playing with army activation mode. Maybe playing pbem mode is to go rather than realtime MP for better stability.

I doubt the AI is any different in CE vs Gold. I don't think they changed the core game - they mostly worked on making it run.

I've seen the AI be a bit overaggressive in spots. But I prefer that to passivity. I still find it to be a reasonable challenge, especially if I try to play historically.

I haven't tried CE in MP, but I would imagine it runs better than Gold there too.

When is this game coming back on Steam? I heard about some legal dispute in August which led to it being taken down.

From what I have read it seems foul play may have taken place... I hope AGEOD were not involved. :(

From the steam forum it looks more like Slitherine than Ageod... I like the game a lot though

Is it possible to play a multiplayer game with just 3 players?

Well that is disappointing. Maybe you can play with 2 people on one team and just use the 2 player campaign.
