It sounds to me that you aren't installing the GS expansion to the correct folder. It need to point the installer to the folder that contains the install for your base game (e.g., "Commander - Europe At War").

I suggest waiting until GS v2.1 is out (any day now) and install this version instead of GS v2.0. GS v2.0 will be withdrawn from the Slitherine WEB site when GS v2.1 is out and people will probably switch to this version very soon.

All work is completed on GS v2.1 so we just wait for the installer so we can verify it's working as intended.

Sounds like you've enable the low RAM settings flag. To check, open the file gs2_settings.txt located in the folder *\My Documents\CEAW Grand Strategy 2.0In that file check, LOW_RAM 2. If the value is set to 2 then you do NOT have the low RAM settings enable; if not then you do and need to change the value to 2.

Glad you go got it working! I'm an old Avalon Hill board game player too. I sill own a dozen or more of their games (though there's no more their in Avalon Hill). WW-2 is by far my favorite wargaming period. I also enjoy learning about the history of the period too.

Did you see the movie last night that they (the Military Channel) had on, "An Officer and a Movie."? It was Tom Selleck as General Eisenhower in, "Countdown to D-Day". It was made in 2003 and enjoyed it. It really painted De Gaulle in a bad light.

All versions of GS are focused on PBEM or hotseat play. The only changes made with respect to the AI were fixes so that it didn't crash. With that said, I'd say the AI in GS is no worse that the AI in CEAW. Both are pretty bad in my opinion.

GSv2.0 has officially been release. GSv2.1 should be released this month. But; there's no AI update released. The comment about fixing bugs so the AI won't crash applies in general to all GS releases starting with 1.00.
