Disappointing end to the game. German forces took India, Australia, NZ and prepared for war against the US.
For some reason, although the UK had surrendered, there were heaps of US forces still based in the UK. Watched them slowly die from attrition and declared war on the US and Ireland when the weather was clear for Arial strikes etc. Destroyed all the US land/air/naval units in the UK, conquered Ireland, destroyed some of the US Atlantic fleet and a few of their Pacific ships. My plan was to continue destroying the US navy and occupy the the UK west indies. Followed by an invasion of Florida.
Couldn't do any of this because the game then stopped with an 'AXIS VICTORY' message. Shame.
Sounds like you reached the end game date that then popped up this message for you. If you have a save from just before you reached this point, you can navigate to OPTIONS->ADVANCED and then enable the 'Disable End Game Date' option which should then allow you to keep playing.
Alternatively, if you've reached an in game DECISIVE VICTORY condition, then the best way to avoid having that end your game is to navigate to OPTIONS->ADVANCED->SCRIPTS and disabling the applicable DECISIVE VICTORY scripts.
Hope this helps,
I had disabled the the end game date (always do so).
I just clicked the scenario I selected for this game and checked the victory conditions. The Axis had taken all the cities mentioned so I think that's why the game ended. The list of cities was surprising because it didn't include ANY in the US. Presumably when the CW empire/China has been conquered the US just give up and go back to isolationism.
