Hotseat game status: - Sicily has won on turn 115



Players (in turn order): (with links to write-ups) plus some other links where I consider it to be funny

Selifator: England
Kilij Ae Varyl: Spain

Venice - FACTION DESTROYED

Me Sicily

EoJ: Turks
I think I might have referenced this video before in the first crusade
This might be more appropriate... Looks like I was right there

Rankings - Turn 101



Rankings - Turn 69



Subs
Glacier_Girl played as sub for England - T29, T30
- played as sub for Sicily - T33

Monty501 played as sub for Spain T30, T 31
JuBuOrangie played as sub for Venice - T31 to T40
Lloydsgamble played as sub for Venice T41 to 42
Brutiangodofrock played as sub for Venice T43 to T65
Zsmart one played as sub for Turks T50 to T65
Hashoosh played as sub for Turks T64


Rules to note:

No 'exploiting' of any kind (e.g. putting forts on resources and stocking them with merchants) nor reloading your go to get a better result.

If I don't hear from a player within 4 days of receiving a turn, I will try to find a sub to take the turn.

If you don't expect to be able to play within 4 days, just let me know - extensions are fine (preferably not too often though please). I'll send a reminder email after a couple of days as a prompt.

If you expect an extended absence, e.g. not being able to play for over a week, you're invited to arrange a sub, giving them instructions etc so your turn is played as you'd like it to be.

An 'un-arranged' sub has the option to take over after 2 weeks or 10 turns The '2 weeks' here looks a little low, but the turn limit looks high?

I probably wont be able to play the save until tonight, because i have to reinstall m2 (i recently downgraded from xp to vista, for complicated reasons). So hopefully i'll be able to get the turn finsihed and passed on to... england?

Edit: After a full reinstall of m2 and retrofit, the save file won't open. I'll load it and then a loading screen with no quotes will show up and when full just directs me back to the title screen. Anyone know how to deal with this? Or is it an effect of vista?

That is what happens when you don't have the current patch. This was my problem as well. Make sure you have patch 1.5.

I will fight for Total War Heaven.

Will You?

I get the feeling I should try to make sure the save isn't a dud by loading it myself. I'm a bit busy currently but will try to fit it in - I copied in Selifator and EoJ with the save so if either of you would try it to make sure you can load to the password screen that'd be handy please.

On the note o patch 1.5... I am going to try the thing that I think I had to try last time to et it to work. If this dangerous venutre works then I will be able to play in this hotseat if I am still needed.

Edit: no... no that didn't work either.

I will fight for Total War Heaven.

Huzzah!
The magic that is windows 7 is able to run the save, but not vista.
Ok, i can play the turn now!


Edit:

After playing and saving the turn, the only thing i can see in the saves folder is turks 68 and spain 68, no england 69, which i just saved....

HELP

and this hotseat is now cursed!

It's not a curse, it's the "virtual store" (I guess). There's a copy made of the relevant folders for some reason into a secret (or not so secret) part of the file system - there's a note around somewhere of how to find it, or searching the internet may give more details, it could even be that once you know what you're looking for it's just easy to find.

Thinking about it, when installing patches/mods on Vista was giving problems - were people running the install programs with administrator-ness enabled? I think there's some level of protection on Vista/Win7 that might stop unauthorised people doing some bits, some of which might be needed for the install. Maybe. I have XP so I really don't know

I think I said they had a good position that was about to get rather interesting. The Turks haven't got a guaranteed victory by any means, but in terms of current economic and military might you should be able to stand up quite well to all but the most concerted attack.
The Turks Vs the Rest of the World - it sounds quite fair really...

Once the game is flowing again remember that diplomacy is very flexible between players, rather than the limited options for in-game relations.

Speaking of which, I probably ought to have mentioned the various treaties between Spain and the Turks as to shipping / army limitations. Oops.

Yeah, sorry, I had a thing with previous sultans as to limiting ship movements. You can review the terms if so wished, but I'll understand if you accidentally do something wrong

Now is probably a slightly late but apt time to mention that after finishing a turn - please make sure to hit "end turn" before saving. Otherwise it's still technically your go...

Incidentally, Awsomated, once you've got a file that's in the right position and can play and finish your turn, please send it on to EoJ and copy me in so I have a copy. Thanks

ok, i would have resent it earlier (will try again tomorrow) cause my net is slowed and i cant check my emails.... and for some reason it seems to slow to a whopping 10bytes/sec so it took me about 15mins to get to being able to stick this up, and a heck of a lot of tries to get in cause it was timing out >.< *sigh* it resets on the 20th, not sure it resets at the start or end of the day though, hopefully start.

The position we'd reached on Venice is that no one wanted to sub for it - considering it's just about dead. On that basis for the last turn (and I'll do again for this one if no one objects) I opened the Venice save and just hit 'end turn'.
You did all agree to (or ignore) that suggestion a couple of months ago.

If anyone wants to pick up Venice then they're free to.

edit: sent on to the Turks

can we get turn 70 done without any hiccups do you think?

Venice has say around 6 territories (not exactly sure how many) in Russia, very little in the way of armed forces or cash. It's at war with Spain and England, it's allied to the Turks (technically, although I have a feeling that the Turks have sensed that there's no value in having a dead ally and might just take lands themselves).

It might be salvageable if everyone else loses concentration while fighting each other. Possibly.

Until Selifator sorts out his computer I'm happier with you continuing playing England as sub personally, I've no idea how long that's likely to be though. If you want to go for Venice then you are welcome to, I'll just have to get another sub for England

As an update, we're on to Spain again.

Merc would also like to withdraw from being the Turkish sub - so we're open for takers again. I'd somewhat oversold the Turks as an opportunity to dominate the world; they're in a strong position still (as far as I know) but under threat from the west and also from the Mongols who are gaining presence. I'm not quite sure how Bandito had planned to handle them (unless there's an article he wrote that's around under the dust somewhere covering the mongols) but the lack of handover has left the Turks with a bit of a problem.

Personally I guess it should be within the bounds of possibility to recover the position.
