Re: Peace Treaties Arent Working Right in the 1.0.6.7 Beta

Ok,even though the save file isn't that large (3+ MB zipped) it clearly can't be directly uploaded by means of this forum.

So if someone is interested in seeing the save file, please let me know where to send it.

Re: Peace Treaties Arent Working Right in the 1.0.6.7 Beta

Thank you - I know where saves are. That's how I managed to zip the save file and attempt to upload it to this forum using the attachment tab. Which didn't work, as I pointed out in the last message. I've tried it again here.

Well no, clearly that's not where he asked me to upload the save file. I tried attaching a zipped save file to this post, but it doesn't seem to work.

Re: Peace Treaties Arent Working Right in the 1.0.6.7 Beta

Sorry, Pocus, it's not clear how you want this reported. Do you want me to use the Tech Support Forum above in FoGE, or by opening a ticket with Slitherine via the "Support" option? From your reply, it sounded like the latter, but I can's see a way to upload the save file. Maybe it would be useful t...

Peace Treaties Arent Working Right in the 1.0.6.7 Beta

I've been playing with the new beta, and I have found several times that peace treaties displace the opponent's armies into regions that the opponent had not taken in the war, did not take in the turn just before peace was concluded, and were not part of the negotiations. Often these were regions th...

Re: What drives war wearniess upwards?

Hmm . . . I'm not so sure. I have played games where a "war" was ongoing for 15 or 20 turns, with no evidence of increasing war weariness.
Well, it's something to keep an eye on.

What drives war wearniess upwards?

It often happens that years pass in an ongoing war during which nothing happens and war weariness doesn't accumulate. That's the correct way to model the effect, I think, but that raises the obvious question of what does drive war weariness higher. Is it losses, or number of battles, or what?

Re: Stranded armies at end of war

I believe sometimes it does happen that armies are returned to the nearest region, but it's certainly not consistent.

Re: Grognerd's Guide is FINISHED!

Thanks a ton for writing up this fabulous guide. It's s must for all players like me, who by now have a measure of experience with the game but could use some useful hints and a sense of how the structures progress. It's a great contribution! I have one quibble, and this is probably one of those thi...

Re: 'Needs' needs explanation :)

Along these lines, is there an easy way to see on the map which provinces produce a widely used material such as stone or wood? There are many times when I am presented with the choice of build infrastructure that yields a given resource, but then I need to click around on neighboring region to see ...

Re: Comments on peace treaties and other deals

Just to go back to the issue of metal, money and manpower for a moment: Yes, of course I agree that there are factions for which manpower and/or metal are perennially in short supply. The Greek factions are prime examples of this. The problem is, there are many more factions -- in my experience, at ...

Re: Poll on decisions

Metal i have in abundance in all my games too but manpower is a totally different beast try sparta and you will be converting money to manpower... (at least i did multiple times) That's a good point. I too have played as one of the Greek city-states, and manpower was definitely a scarce resource! B...

Re: Poll on decisions

Slaves status and freedmen laws is very good decision i always take. But in my current game it stopped appearing at about turn 50. What can i do to get this decision again? Is it possible that you had already distributed your slaves evenly enough that the decisions wouldn't trigger? That's my guess...

Re: Comments on peace treaties and other deals

I have several responses to the diplomacy system, but before getting to that, let me just say how truly wonderful this game is. I haven't played a game in years -- and trust me, I've been playing computer games since we had 64-bit processors -- that offers so many intricate and challenging ways of p...

Re: Agonizingly slow load time from saves

Sorry for the confusion -- yes, I was simply running the standard Blitzkrieg/Minsk scenario. (Where does one find those scenario names, btw?)
I didn't have any other programs running.

Re: Agonizingly slow load time from saves

In answer to bebro's question, I am playing Barbarossa, & am at the point of deploying/purchasing units. I'm playing version 8.1. I wonder if it makes a difference whether one is playing windowed or full-screeen. Or might there be other graphics options that could be disabled or turned down? EDIT: I...

Re: Agonizingly slow load time from saves

Actually, that last suggestion doesn't seem to work. I had completely exited the game and then tried to reload the save. After waiting 5 minutes and watching the little progress meter crawl along, that's what prompted the original query. I wonder if the problem is specific to having paused and saved...

Agonizingly slow load time from saves

Hi, all -- Is there anything you can do to improve the load time from save files? I am trying to load the campaign save at the beginning of Barbarossa, and it is taking forever. Saves from late in scenarios have a similar problem, in my experience. i'm sure this has come up before, but I couldn't fi...
