This made me explore AGEOD titles more, the one historical period other than the GREAT WAR that i really like is the 7-year War and Napoleonic Wars but i heard on the forum indirectly that chances of NCP2 is higher than ROP2, so i purchased ROP.

Can i get some starting tips for ROP Gold-
Artillery- is artillery that much good in Fredrick's age? Napoleon used it brilliantly, but Fredrick was more of discipline and out-flanking.
Anything appreciated.

artillery is an important force multiplier in RoP but not as deadly as in NCP and later. Usually the Prussians will have more artlllery than the Austrians and it acts as a sort of equalizer between the different army sizes as they can inflict losses and disruption in the ranged combat phase.

broadly, with the Prussians you have elite units, lots of cash and a manpower shortage, with the Austrians and French its a case of little cash, lots of manpower and a large not particularly good army. The Russians have a very powerful army (lots of good artillery) but its also very fragile.

Strongly suggest reading Narwhal's 'Learning from Prussia' while some mechanics are different the core concepts remain

What you need to do is to amend the key events like this. The PBEM event chain works fine but not the single player.

I assume you skiĆ¼p the ROP patches when going for Gold, so is this installation order correct?

I have the steam version. I've already tried installing the patch to ROP gold and it didn't work. What specific directory under ROP gold do I need to install the patch to?

You need to target the parent directory, i.e not the ROP directory but the Rise of Prussia one, one step above.

I know it's a bit extemporary, but I think it would be a good time to add 1.11 patch to Steam, as far as there's a lot of people that has acquired the Rise of Prussia Gold Steam version recently (more than 13,000 units sold of Humble Weekly Bundle now, and 48 hours remaining). It's easy to do manually, but... If it doesn't require too much work from you, it'd be fine.

It should be checked what to include of these mods into the next patch:
At least the RGD Mod fixes obvious bugs, the silly Citrcumvallatio messages on cities that are not besieged and also the strange draft messages(str_Msg_ongoingforcedRecruting).

Hi, I'm slightly confused.
What is the latest patch? 1.11 or 1.11rc2?
I installed 1.11 and then 1.11rc2, but I'm not certain I did things in the right order.
Thanks for your help.

RC stands usually for Release Candidate so that is a version from before patch 1.11.
I suggest to uninstall and re-install the game and patch to 1.11.

Most updated game would be 1.11rc2 with this mod
The mod takes care of some issues missed in 1.11rc2

So while BigDuke66 is kind of correct, rc are updates to official versions. So 1.11rc2 is newer than 1.11.

No, RC are just Release candidate that are about to get final:
1.11rc2 is from October 2013

1.11 is from December 2013

So go for 1.11 and forget the RCs.

Well kind of, but not really.

Not really what???

My statement is the same info as state already in the Patch thread for the RC2.
That thing was released as 1.11 period and so 1.11 is the latest patch.

I strongly recommend updating 1.11 with the RoP Gold mods Durk has referred to. They solve an important issue in SP campaign, as Russian troops now could reach Eastern Prussia, as well as they fixes other annoying bugs, like a decision not working as intended.

Thank you all for your help. Since I was planning on installing the mods, I'll try it with the current 1.11 rc2 and see if anything goes wrong.
The thing is, with the current 1.11 rc2, the game tells me that I have the latest version. Is there any real difference between rc2 and 1.11?

Well there are 2 points missing in the changelog for RC2 that are on the list for the final 1.11 patch:
- New AI algorithm to collect idle leaders
- Fixed overlapping icons in the ledger
So as said, go the for the latest what is 1.11, and that a patch tells you you have the latest is normal, either it didn't recognize you installed 1.11RC2 over 1.11 or it simply doesn't see the difference between 1.11RC2 and 1.11.

I do not understand technical details, so I would go with BigDuke66's recommendation.

I see.
So it's uninstall, re-install, apply patch 1.11 and mods then.
Thank you. Much appreciated.

I recently had to repurchase ROP Gold as my computer had problems. When I install it, version 1.10 works fine. But when I upgrade to 1.11 it does not work correctly. I have re-installed several times and have the same issues every time I upgrade to 1.11.

The problem is that when you press the next turn button, the game turn will load but then freeze, until you tap the map with the cursor. Then it will resume. Also, the desktop toolbar will show up at the bottom of the screen and halt the loading until you tap the screen again, and then a message will ask if you want to wait until the problem can be worked out or close the page. Also, during battles it will often freeze the screen will go black and then skip to the end of the battle.

If it were only my computer then I would think 1.10 would do the same, but it seems to work normaly on that version. I had 1.11 on my original download and it used to work normal. Any ideas?

Edit- It seems the issue has to do with the windows key activating when I don't want it to. Maybe my keeyboard needs to be replaced?

Problem Solved- I checked to see if ROP was in my firewall exceptions, it was not! I then added the ROP to the exceptions list and the windows key does not activate during the game unless i press it myself. The issue was that simple. I did not recall having to add it to the exception list before, but I will always be mindful of this now. A reminder for others to dot your I's and cross your T's after downloading a new game. :dada:

Rather weird issue, but if it is solved, that's good!
