There are issues in the current version and it don't work reliably, we are fixing that for the first patch which is coming soon. We will provide files for people not wanting to wait too much though
The game manual states: "Can only be used if the development level is under 25". However, currently it can be used on ANY development level region e.g. you can make Paris go from 90 to 100 develop. level.
Also the decision card for "build redoubt" has the cost in "dollars" it should be "pounds".
Love the game... playing in MP as France... a lot of fun!!
