I am playing as US and have taken the following cities: Nashville, Memphis, Chatanooga, Atlanta and Milledgville, but my score indicates credit for only one city. Anyone know what gives here ??

Does this thread answer your question, or is the situation different?

Gil R.:

I read the thread you suggested.

Seems like it's a bug. All cities were captured by "normal siege" yet out of the five cities I captured, I only got credit for one, Memphis, the second of the five.

Until this bug is fixed, would it be possible to "manually" adjust victory points ??

It does sound like a bug that's been fixed in the beta-patch (though I'm not certain).

There might be a way of manually fixing victory points by editing the save files -- I don't know, and Eric (= programmer) has gone camping for a week. So if anyone else knows, please chime in.

By the way, this time we posted just three seconds apart. Quite impressive.

You'll have to pardon Gil, He's a text man, not a number cruncher.

Ahem. I think you guys need to take another look.

The first time, I posted at 11:40:09 and Johnnie posted at 11:40:14, a 5-second difference.
The second time, I posted at 11:50:59 and Johnnie posted at 11:51:02, a 3-second difference.

I think you guys are comparing Johnnie's 11:51:02 posting with my 11:52:54 posting, but 1) I wasn't referring to that, and 2) that's a difference of 1:52, not :52.

Not that anyone's counting.

O.K. you can add and subtract better than I can.  Anyone who spends time calculating the interval between posts at 2:43 in the morning, however, has other, serious, issues.

I'm moving this week and need to watch various shows recorded in my D.V.R. before I can return it to the cable company. I'll leave it to others to decide if that's a serious problem or not...

In my current game, I have (as the USA) taken 10 southern cities and only been given credit for 1. I don't mind adding the points for these cities myself to know when I have won, but am I receiving credit otherwise (for example with respect to national will) ??

I really think this should be a priority for the upcoming patch.
