Stacking your border with units helps I think...having a higher build capacity will also make your rating go down...I don't know anything else that is guaranteed to provoke him...

An incursion by your forces means you start the war...

Yep, and it saves military settings (initiative, anyway), production settings, tax settings, ministers, priorities...and any locks you have on various areas. Best to start a game and pause, make all the settings you want for the 'average' game and save the settings. Then the first thing you do when ...

World Map

I tried this scenario (I know it's BIG) but had an immediate problem. After about a day, whenever I try to do something, the game locks up solid. I know people have played this scenario so I suspect it's due to the huge scale of things and my system is being overwhelmed by all the units. I have play...

Found a similar problem in the Africa scenario as South Africa. There are two light infantry units (or maybe engineers) that are identical except that one has 5mm weapons, the other has 7mm weapons. All other details look identical. There is certainly an engineer available for research when I alread...

Well the range values for the artillery upgrades (EFRB and V-Lap) do change. I've never really researched that much (short scenarios) so rarely get things like defence upgrades. Even if I did, I haven't noticed any value changes - simply because I didn't look at the before/after values. But if we do...

Yeah. I wanted to bombard a nearby base and couldn't.... :x There is an option to 'attack unit', I think if the hex is within your border, but usually giving that order to an artillery means your unit goes dashing off to physically attack it, not bombard it. Attack unit for artillery should mean bom...

Some spyware is set running when you boot up and can cause system problems even if you're not connected to the net. Spyware (and other stuff like it) is something you really don't need on your system if you can possibly avoid it. Adaware and Spybot are two programs I use but there are lots of things...

Grab a hex of his land...he'll send some units to reclaim it.

I'd guess the only way to end it would be to destroy him...or you might ignore him if he's doing nothing and you can afford to ignore the threat.

One possibility, have you installed any new programs recently. I did have a program that worked happily and then spent ages unexplicably crashing. I eventually found that something I had later installed had altered a system file (or DX9) that sent the first program loopy.

Just a long-shot...

Yakaspat. Ditto. I do that quite a lot. Another annoying thing is ordering a non-amphibious unit to cross a river and it paths to go around the obstacle and drive through a stack of enemy units... It's alright if these are tanks/infantry but they always seem to be artillery and supply trucks :lol: U...

Last night I saw it with land units...some ordered to repair would redeploy after repair on (say) 27/28 strength. Reodering the repair saw them disappear into the base and then reappear a few seconds later, still on 27/28. Never thought about bringing the savegame in but I can do that...although it ...
