    Put "steam://install/65900" in run.exe. I've downloaded now but can't play. I keep getting told the installation is incomplete.

    Playing 150 is basically nothing at all. If I play WoW demo or BF2142 (to name just 2) I can play infinitely and have a full view of the game; I´m not playing some demo when I´m gettin´ the full game anyway.

    From 3 posts up ;)


    Believe me: I've tried EVERYTHING and it's just the Steam client does nothing. I've even installed Steam on my laptop and tried it there: same problem.

    I have already downloaded the demo no problem (from Spain). Played a couple of turns and looks fantastic on a 27" monitor.

    I'm downloading too @ 1MB/sec. Should be done in a couple of minutes I guess.

    So I played my first game with the demo but to form a real oppinion i have to play some more....

    Has anyone any info about differences between the the demo and the actual game? I mean beside the obvious turn limitation?

    Only 100 turns instead of the 150 stated, that the only downer so far

    It has crashed on me three times, always when I'm in the strategic view.

    I HATE steam for this.

    I'm moving house Friday, which means I'll lose broadband for a while. I was counting on a 00:00 unlock, so I could decrypt and switch steam into offline mode before the removal van turned up. Now I'm screwed!

    Of course, if it was playable on integrated graphics I could have played it on my laptop instead, which I can carry to an internet connection. :mad:
