I tried to start my first PBEM game, I selected Germany, Italy and other Axis as playable by me, and all Allies/Soviet for my opponents. He can play all those countries, but I can only play Germany, other countries are set to AI. If I, or my opponent try to change it nothing happens, it is still only Germany. What can I do? The event option was set to AI if it matters.

I am involved in a 3 player game starting in 1939. I selected to play Germany and Italy, another choose Great Britain and The United States and the third player is France and the USSR. Each country was selected in the PBEM settings with the correct human player.

However only the USSR and France player has been able to keep both countries under his control. Myself I lose Italy and the other player loses the USA.

Each turn we change the setting back from AI to human control for these countries but it does not seem to remain that way and goes back to AI control every time.

How do we get round this problem?

Thank you.

Hmm, silence is telling. Must mean this is a touchy issue.

In a PBEM game with two others. We had the same issue. But by trial and error and finally just pushing on to see what happens we figured it out. If a country isn't at war, a human can't control it (USSR is an exemption). Once Italy joins the war, you can change it to human. Once USA enters, a human can control it (we're hoping because we're not that far yet but it did happen with Italy). Seems like a sentence or two in the manual sure would have cleared up that issue.

Makes sense. This kind of is working for us now. Thanks for posting.
