I remember this gem now. My small but deadly army of five Regulars and four Heavy Artillery are sweeping the minor nations out of the way (it's early game mind ya)!

A fun title, along with Imperialism 2. Too bad Frog City never got the funding they needed to continue producing great games, but from what they told me back then, publishers wanted promises that they would issue cross-platform titles instead of just concentrating on PC stuff.

Hey, just letting it be known that this forum thread doesn't link from the page for imperialism.

Love this game

BTW, crushing minor nations early on isn't very useful, you don't have the engineers, money, or labourforce to exploit your own nation yet! Better to build trade missions and work on relations

That's just the thing though, it is useful. It's al about resources and working on the ability to gain those resources for later development is worthwhile. Just got declared on by 4 great powers and wiped one out with ease. Working about 1 general, 2 Infantry men (the 2nd quality of troop), and about 20 Heavy Artillery in my main army and haven't lost a unit since I started the game. Also, was working with about 15 provenances before I got declared on.

Trust me when I say it works well. It also still says I'm a weak military power yet I haven't lost a fight yet. Fun times.:thumbs:

Love the game so far, but the gamepage says it's DosBox compatible... I wouldn't want to underestimate my own ignorance, but I've looked through the readme files etc. and it seems to require some form of Windoze in order to run. Any help out there? Or at least a correction on the game info page? Cheers.

Sorry. First update ever, and for some reason my link to this thread didn't work either, so red-faced all round...

I woudl really liek to know hwo to get other Greta Powers to accept your alliance offers. No matter what they never accept them if i sned them one. Also when ever want peace with them ( incase we are at war) they never accept peace. This is the only part of the game i find hard, for if i had alliances long enough i could easily create and army and cause some havoc
