    playing with random personalities is great

    Remember the time in history when Warlord Ghandi conquered the Scientific Aztec nation?

    Or how about that time when Germany took Shanghai from the French!?

    The most memorable moment in history though was when Napoleon I declared war on Napoleon II

    What I meant is it might be cheaper than buying it from Steam at the UK price.
    It's $US40 cheaper than paying the AU price for it atleast.

    Jesus Christ, it's 6am and I've been playing all night

    Poor Montezuma, he got so afraid of my swordsmen + catapults that he tried to offer everything he got, the problem with offering everything you've got is when all you've got is 30 gold...

    He didn't live long thats for sure.

    The heal instantly promotion is so much fun. One of my swordsmen got reduced to 1 hp, while tanking Montezuma's army, he got a promotion and suddenly he was at full strength again.

    I'm not sure about that "promotion"
    I wouldn't really call it one since it's not really a sustained buff, rather just a full heal.

    It can be useful though, yeah

    To those experiencing crashing issues - that's odd. I'm not experiencing any issues that anyone is having.
    I'm on the DirectX 9 version if any other crash victims are too.

    Edited:

    Oh fuck that's not good. I can't even generate a new map without it crashing.

    The achievements reference so many things, particularly more modern stuff,
    with achievements like: Eighty-eight miles per hour, Exterminate!, Two men enter, one man leave, Gotta catch em all, battlefield earth, Smallville, I'm on a boat, and my two favourites:the world is a mess and i just need to rule it, and he threw a car at my head! (Points if you get he reference.)

    So I've figured out that my game crashes when I start/load a game, with the 'leader scene quality' option set to high. Specs are way over the requirements, so I don't know what could be causing it, especially since it also worked fine in the demo. Going to see if it depends on other options being on high as well tomorrow, because it's to late, and I can't stand the ads every time I start the game up.

    Oh god I just experianced time-warp at it's best. I was Rome on a large-Earth map. I started in the Mid-West United States and began building. I expanded all around me to find no other civs in North America, and a mountain range blocking me from South America.

    After centuries of development we unlock deep sea sailing. I make a ship and go east to Europe. Gandhi has an 1880's era army and has literally taken over everything from England to China, Russia to Australia. I make a tiny-ass colony on his shore, eventually getting betrayed and conquered.

    But goddamn, I didn't even have gunpowder yet. Fucking Gandhi and his passive resistance magic.

    Yeah, just tried multiplayer again and it's completely borked,
    the lack of animations is somewhat bearable, but dropping someone so easily is not.

    I really hope they Finish it with a patch.

    Horrible multiplayer. So many bugs, and the missing animations really take away the soul of the game.

    I swear, all the fucking nations are just trolling me.

    So, I'm playing Songhai, being all cool and shit like that. Then up comes Napoleon, talking shit like he's the big goddamn man in town. So I show him what for, and shove his nation down the drain. Then comes along his bro, Ghandi, wanting a piece of me for getting rid of his bro. I take most of his shit, leaving him only a shack of a city.

    And then he tries to make peace with me.

    Edited:

    All he ever fucking does is wave his dick around in your face to piss you off, and then when you slap him in the face several times, he pleads for you to stop. The whole process repeats.

    I think there's a minimum zoom setting in one of the inis, set to 11, but you can put it down to 4 (debug zoom)

    I got a quite weird crash issue - i start the game, the intro is blinking, and it crashes to desktop after 4-5 seconds.
    Hey, same here.

    I've tried all the recommended fixes, but nothing has worked. :(

    Playing the tutorials right now. God damn, why won't it accept that I connected the cities with roads? :colbert:

    Edited:

    Also, am I the only one who can only skip the Intro movie when it's 14 seconds in?

    No. The intro movie is basically a loading screen, only you can't see how far you've gotten.

    Patch Notes:
    1.0.0.17
    Released 9/23/2010

    Special character fix for Windows usernames: Users with non-english characters in their windows username would experience a game crash. This has been fixed, and a forthcoming fix will address an issue related to this where game victories are not recorded in the Hall of Fame.
    Default resolution fix for DX9: Some users who have non-standard or below the minimum specification resolutions crashed before starting. Now, the system will change to Windowed mode and start so it does not crash.
    AI city weighting: AI will not quite as freely offer up their cities when asking for peace.
    Gold per turn glitch: When agreeing to a deal for anything above 5 gold per turn in exchange for something else (like a luxury), the deal would always only pay 5 gold per turn, regardless of the amount proposed. This has been corrected.


    They have confirmed that they are working on an update that focuses on the multiplayer aspects of the game.

    Napoleon is a hardcore motherfucker. I didn't discover the second continent until about 1600AD, and he had conquered the entire thing. Now its 2 complete continent empires against eachother. This will be tough, as his armies seem to be endless. I have 10 armies, but my advisor still says his military could wipe me off the planet.

    Edited:

    I managed to capture a city-state just on his coast. It's perfect, as it only has a 1 tile path leading to it, and is surrounded by mountains and ocean. The 1 tile leading to the city is also a hill, so they can't really use artillery on my city without getting too close. On the plains a bit further out from my city, i also built a citadel. This is totally going to end up as 300.



    The area is just perfect for defenders. I think i made a mistake by leaving the citadel to attack their city though.
