see subject...

1st off - all the reviews, both positive and negative, praise the game play, accurate history, mechanics etc. Almost universally from game release to now. Which is a huge plus as the Napoleonic Wars are only superseded by the American Civil War and the Italian Campaign of WWII in the list of my favorite game subjects.

But I still haven't taken the leap and bought this title.

Why? Of all reviews I've read on Steam or internet game sites, 7 or more out of 10 reviews dated from release through today all complain about the same thing...

Constant game crashes to desktop or main menu. No where do I see any indications that Ageod is trying to address this issue which seems to be a quite common occurence. I find this odd because indications are that WoN uses the same game engine as Civil War 2 and I've never gotten a crash of any kind with it.

Or WoN game crashes is really a non-issue and it's just a small minority of players that experience the issue and what I am seeing is the general propensity of those not pleased to write reviews.

What's the real skinny? Is it common for the game to crash to desktop and main menu or not?

13 Reads, no responses.

Guess that means that WoN still crashes and the reviewers are right.

Too Bad. I was really hoping it was worth a buy.

I got it and it seems ok.

I had an early crash or two - but if you re-run compatibility troubleshooter and also do their trick with the 10% memory for textures and it will cut down on the problems.

Playing around with WON after PON however, left me feeling empty in comparison - since there is so much more to PON. It also has been a lot more stable for me.

I guess I will go back to WON eventually but only after I get sick of PON. Considering the full PON campaign is over 1700 turns, it may be a while

Thanks...

2 questions:

1) What's the 10% memory trick
2) What's PON

No problem.

Check this for 10% textures limit:

PON = Pride of Nations - another AGEOD on the Age of Imperialism.


It starts only 35 years after Waterloo - so you'll see a lot that is familiar - but it also global and goes to 1920 - so you'll see more modern inventions coming, the impact of Railroads, modern naval shipping, social reforms etc ...


For my money, it is the ultimate Grand Strategic war game - one that I will likely be playing for years to come.

Thanks...

Very helpful. I've seen the PON titles for years and without bothering to look I made, lets just say, some inaccurate assumptions. I am going to look into Pride of Nations.
