The biggest problem for PoN is that Paradox screwed up the financial basis by pushing it out a very low price and then allowing steam to sell it for $.99. That severly hampers development - something you might like to take account of when pushing the very witty 'beta-tester' line? These are not mut...

That seems to be the MO that AGEOD has slipped into. 1.) Release game early and full of game stopping bugs, but promise to fix them in patches after release. 2.)Make lots of promises for long term support of their games, as the trade off for being a "small developer" in a "niche market" and for cust...

I am getting "application is stalling" when I start the game. And the log files aren't updating, so there is nothing to report. I did a fresh install of from Gamersgate, and then an install of 1.04 from the patch. I got that error. Then I tried this fix. Got the same error.

No, that's pretty much how it works. The diplomacy in this game is shit. I play as Prussia, and I steam roll Mecklenburg, yet for some reason I cannot annex them. I can take all of their territory except their capital, but I can't annex them. So I don't. I use develop territory to increase my loyalt...

I would give the game another month. At least until another patch or two come out, you'll probably just end up angry and frustrated by crashes. Especially if you do anything other than play as France, which seems to be the main faction they tested.

This is why I think capital ships should be reduced to one element units. Each ship is a unique unit and element, and division commanders ,if they ever implemented stacking for naval units, could have a full 8 ship division of capital ships.

It would, but then it would introduce the problem of increasing the number of counters by 4 to achieve the same concentration of power.

Even if it is 200 days, which I haven't seen, that is still to fast for a replaced element. That implies 200 days to build a brand new ship to replace the lost one. Not realistic.

This makes no sense. A unit of 4 battleships with 3completely destroyed elements can be back to full strength in 30 days?

Unfortunately, I think it is an inherent limitation of the engine.

Other AGEOD titles are really fast to have their turns processed, but they ...
