After roughly 30 straight hours of play, I have hit my first real bug problem.
I am roughly 2 years into a scenario as Poland and I can't get into the economy screen and make trades without the Microsoft "error" sound. Once on the trade screen, it won't let me change anything. It just keeps making the noise anytime I try to click anything.
I have a save file which when opened reproduces the problem.
Interestingly, the first time I tried to go do this (after ignoring my trade economy with a trade expert on for the first two years), I also experienced my first CTD.
At the moment, I am not being allowed to form protectorates of Saxony or Mecklenburg either. I took control of them by conquering them and have repeatedly gone to the international relations screen so that I could turn them into a protectorate and they don't change their status at all. However, maybe I am missing something here and it is just my lack of undertstanding of the rules which is weak.
So, 30 hours of play without crash isn't bad. I hope we can get this fixed. I am having a blast playing as Poland.
P.S. I also had problems on the trade screen while playing my PBEM game. It would simply not let me do anything with the trades. I decided to ignore it as the advanced economy was beyond me (I was still struggling to learn movement, unit, diplo basics). Now, however, I think the issue deserves attention. I can send you the PBEM file which I have which caused this too.
