a) replacement system and garrisons not receiving them
b) some (or all if lucky) of the issues of thread http://www.ageod-forum.com/showthread.php?50269
If we are missing a very important issue, please ring a bell here. We can't fix everything at once, our time on PON is limited but we will do our best to improve PON over the next weeks.

and just checked: French Foreign Legion brigades, light cavalry divisions and brigades, heavy, ordinary and light infantry corps are all recruitable from the very start of the 1850 campaign.
The British also can recruit highlander brigades and gurkha regiments right from the start (in the military submode select "brigade sized units" and scroll to the right, beyond the balloon corps.).
Random wrote:With regards to order of installation, had major issues after wrecking PON and trying to re-install and updating everything. One issue was that I had bought PON on release and the Paradox-provided authorization code is not supported by Matrix/Slitherine. That said, the tech-support people were a great help in getting PON v1.04 Final (that is not a final) and all the associated DLC running successfully although with the v1.04 Final problems noted above and elsewhere. I have nothing but praise and appreciation for the assistance provided in addressing my help ticket
What worked for me follows, offered with no warranties express or implied:
1. Uninstalled PON. Used Win regedit from the Windows Start menu to manually delete all of the PON related registry entries. For some reason CC-Cleaner was unable to remove these two registry folders, one for PON and the other for Struggle for Africa.
2. Installed PON 1.01 using the old PrideOfNation_efg.exe executable. Tested and found correct.
3. Installed _1880SfAC-v103e.exe executable. This updates to PON 1.03e and installs the 1880-Struggle for Africa DLC. Tested and found correct.
4. Installed remaining DLC in the following order:
- Franco-Prussian War
- Spanish-American War
- US Civil War
Tested and found correct.
5. Installed PrideOfNations-Update-v104.exe executable. Tested and found correct.
Getting this far took much time and many trial and error installs and uninstalls that became really tiresome pretty quickly. Nothing else worked for me so good luck. I think that PON is worth the effort but am very much looking forward to the fixes necessary to finish v1.04 at last.

Pocus wrote:From what I read the order is sensible, even if convoluted. Random installs first the base game, then a DLC provided separately (Struggle from Africa). Then others DLC he has, and then he tops that with the latest patch. I don't see how to include the DLCs to the patch or a new base game. And I'm not allowed to propose a full setup for free download, it must be a patch.
Siegfroh wrote:Easiest would be to create such a patch quickly and let us download it.
All the beta patches were complete (but witout the additional DLCs) and had only to be installed over the initial installation. They worked without problems.
It is only the "official patchwork 1.04" which has been messed up.
For those of us who can deal a bit with computers, a quickfix just containing the new .exe would do as well, until the bigger latefix can be prepared. This would reduce a little bit the slowly increasing general level of discontent in the world. At least in those parts of the world which have to do with PON.
If you can do this today, I would be willing to write a simple instruction with illustrations on how to install everything (for non-steam users only, I don't use steam).

Everything installed fine! Never had a problem. Only secondary issues. So many pc system configurations ,so many different hardware components it is logical
for some people programs work while for other it is a complete mess!
I wonder if some people who bought PON for 20-30 USD and complain every day ,have the same attitude if their 300-400 usd or euros TV set or their 12000-15000
car has a problem.
What do they do? Camp outside company's office?
Pocus and rest devs keep up the good work
