Biiviz;4844161A WW2 mod for this game would be so awesome. I'd love to try out all the different what-if scenarios that are constantly debated all over the web. What if France hadn't surrendered, what if the Germans had developed nuclear weapons, what if the Finns had joined the siege of Leningrad etc. Imagine all the money and resources that went into terror weapons that could have been used to build Panthers. Ahh, keep dreaming I guess.

Nah, WWII wouldn't work with Total War's setup - Total War is about pitched battles and large unit formations etc. I agree a strategy game of this scale with WWII tactics etc would be great, but it wouldn't fit with Total War's current style - they've have to completely change it until it wasn't Total War anymore.

Hearts of Iron 2 (and of course 3 soon :D ) should sate your thirst for what-ifs, however.

Meadow;4845035Well, my epic Britain game has become unplayable again in 1767 because of CTDs. Yay. Awaiting patch. However, I do love the game - I control all of India, the 13 Colonies are now part of my nation, my economy is booming, I'm dominating in prestige AND as punishment for refusing my peace offerings, I annexed the United Provinces and now use them as a European base to assist Prussia against Poland-Lithuania. I'm roleplaying that because of the historic links with William III, the United Kingdom in this timeline will in fact be of Great Britain and Holland ;) One question though - is it possible to manually liberate countries a la HoI2? The only way I've seen is increasing taxes so much that rebels emerge and then just letting them take a capital, then establishing favourable relations. Or am I missing something?

Pff, roleplaying. The United Provinces should annex Great Britain, thats realistic. =p

The Netherlands really is just a powerhouse of neutrality.

Yup, except in the colonies. VOC was quite agressive.

I got my new PC! For those of you who frequent the Tech discussion, you will know what it is already, but for those of you who don't (and quietly I suspect it is most of you), here it is:

Core i7 920 6GB DDR3-1333 MSI Eclipse SLI XFX HD4870 2x640GB WD 7200rpm in RAID1 Antec Nine Hundred Two.

And I'm running XP 32-bit on it with a 19-inch Philips whose highest resolution is 1280x1024... :lol:

Bavarians are Pansies! ;)

No no... it's just a bug, as my reinforcements weren't shown in the battle results. (only their deaths were counted as kills for the Bavarians)

@Pedantic: Showoff :P But one question, why on earth buy 6GB and a HD4870 when you're only using XP 32bit?

Because XP is just to tide me over until Windows 7 comes out.
