Make sure you completely exit steam after deleting local content to make sure it's got the update. Easiest way to be sure is to reboot.

Austria Hungary did it. I tried expanding early on and this new "sphere" caused them to declare war on me! It was too good. Lol

The Linux version will only be available on Steam. We will be turning it on shortly - just making sure we are setup to debug problems if they are reported.

What video cards will you be supporting? Many laptops do have integrated intel ...

One suggestion: make a script that checks the system telling what libraries/moduls are missing.

I should be able to download that one in advance, few kB and check my system.

    September 15, 2014 

    At the forefront of this is Muzzy Lane Software’s Making History: The Great War, the latest installment in the educational videogame series designed with consumers and classrooms in mind. The game debuted on Steam Early access on April 4th of this year to coincide with the 100 year anniversary of the war. It is due for a September 9th release. The game’s primary focus is Grand Strategy where players are tasked with taking on the Great Powers (or smaller nations such as Cuba) and steering them through the conflict using military, economic, diplomatic, and even domestic tactics.

  • Armchair General previews TGW
    July 17, 2014 

    "Although the graphic and mechanics are similar to Muzzy Lane’s World War II games, play in the new game is different. The world—even Europe—was not as developed in 1912 as it was in 1933. Gaining wealth and increasing military might is a function of building factories in cities. These factories must have well-developed rail systems, and only Britain and most of Germany are well-heeled in this respect. Powers such as Austria-Hungary and even France didn’t have enough double-tracked lines to expand their manufacturing base or easily move troops. Colonies in Asia and Africa not only have poor transportation systems but very backward agriculture. "
