In political view (I think that's what it's called), how comesome provinces are yellow-coloured, some greyish, some green?There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason.
I tried playing Age of Exploration as Spain. I walked a guy intoGrenada at the beginning. Why couldn't I annex Granada after Itook out the army there? The manual says that you can't takeover a foreign capital province unless it is the only provinceleft. So does Granada have another province somewhere?
Speaking of which, is there a way to bring up a list that showsall the countries and what provinces they own?
When I try to load games, EU2 crashes. I can start new games andsave them fine. Wassah?
Well, if you're looking at the political map it shows whichprovinces belong to which country. Yellow is Castille, grey isArgon, and green is Portugal.
If you were trying to annex Granada by selecting Annex from thediplomat screen, that's not how it's done. That's how youDiplo-Annex a country, and to do that they have to have beenyour vassle for 10 years, and have 195+ relations with you.To annex a country you've taken over, like they say, the capitolhas to be the only provice they have left. You use a diplomat tooffer peace, then ask for tribute. When you offer peace, it willshow you a bar with a percantage of how well the war is going inyour favor. In order for them to accept a peace offer that willannex them the war has to be 100% in your favor, but if you meetthe criteria for annexing someone (capital is their onlyprovince and you control it) then you'll be at 100%. Under thetribute screen you can ask for gold or provinces. If the capitalis the only province it will be available. If they accept yourpeace offer, you will have annexed that country.
No, all you can do is switch to the political map and lookaround.
Dunno, never had that happen.
I bought the game yesterday. Did the person who wrote all thein-game text and the manual forget about commas? Yeesh. 8)
Anyway here are some questions:In political view (I think that's what it's called), how comesome provinces are yellow-coloured, some greyish, some green?There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason.
I think it's because they're Swedish. There are a lot ofnon-native English-speaker errors.
In the main view, the colors correspond, I believe, to the typeof terrain -- open, forest, mountains, desert, swamp. But Ican't confirm that.
This is a known bug. You need a patch. Should be availablethrough MacLedge or Inside Mac Games, or at VirtualProgramming's site.
By the way, I've been playing for a while now, and I'm enjoyingit, even though I understand only about 3/4 of what I'm doing.
