Any chance for a hotfix to get leaders?

Love the game but no countries having any leaders left by 1865 is kinda silly.....

Political actions questions and issues

The Change political regime option is grayed out. I can’t find any perquisites for playing it in the manual or board rules – what are the requirements for Russia to try to change to constitutional monarchy? The board game rules and the text in the action “make promises to Rumania” seems to suggest t...

Sending the Oriental army to Salonika means it dies due to out of supply?

I picked to political option to send a French army to the Balkans.

Surely that can’t be right. What am I doing wrong? The Eastern Med is controlled by the United Kingdom and Greece is at level -3 pro Ententes. Why can’t I supply the French Oriental Army in Salonika?

Just the background graphics. I do get the tooltips and the buttons I can see works just fine. Reloading the game fixes everything and that is no problem until I either leave the PC for a long time (Perhaps the screen saver is to blame) or I Tab out and back in again.

Any way I can take a screenshot to show you? The prt screen key doesn’t seem to work in-game. What I mean is that, often, if I tab out and back into the game the overlay of various combat, production and diplomatic screens are missing so that I see that map instead of, for instance, the battle backg...

Swapping the position of 2 armies in turn-based mode? How does one accomplish that? It won’t let me move an army into a hex already occupied by another friendly army?

Weird redeployment issue.

It appears a nation can only redeploy to a hex controlled by that nation. Is this really intentional? It makes little sense that British forces cannot redeploy in France because the hexes are controlled by France and not the UK. Meanwhile the French army can be freely redeployed in France from top t...

How about having intrinsic corps deployed automatically if there is room in their HQ. If there isn’t have a random non-intrinsic corps placed in the deployment pool to make room? Would make game play a lot easier.

I’m pretty sure. Check the saved game from the other thread. Oddly enough in the following turn the Japanese army was back in Japan. Unable to move it to Siberia but the error I get is that it is due to bad weather – fair enough in Jan/Feb. I’ll report back if it works in the summer.
