Can I change the optional rules while playing? If so how?

I forgot to enable the ability to save BPs from one turn to the next when I set up a new game and I'm already multiple turns in.

There is no in-game method to do so, but with a text editor it is possible to do so. Be warned that turning some options on or off mid-game (anything that adds or subtracts available units, for example) is very likely to create an unplayable game, with crashes occurring.

About the fourth line in each game save will be a long list of ones and zeros. These are the options. Changing from 0 to 1 turns the option on, similarly turning a 1 to 0 turns it off. I believe that the order is that of the options on the option screen.

Be warned that if you do this, and do get a crash, do not bother reporting it to Steve. The ability to switch options on or off is emphatically NOT a supported feature of the game. (With the exception that the extended game length option may be turned on mid-game, in-game.)


I thought I knew how to play this game....

To win my 2 netplay games as the Allies I may need to turn on the extended game option...I hope it extends until 1950.
