    I understand that Congresses were disable in MP version of RFC. I believe it is because of OOS errors they can cause in LAN/Internet games, and because there is just one version for all kinds of mulitplayer, they are disabled in hotseat as well.
    Is is possible to reenable them for hotseat games, by simple changes to Congresses.py file ? Or maybe just copying one from single player version of RFC ?

    It would, in theory, be possible to have Congresses in multiplayer. This would however require a programming effort, even if it would mostly be based on the Congresses.py file. The thing missing in the present code is a "mod net message" through which the individual player choices are distributed to all the human player's games. So this would also have to be setup in CvEventHandler.py - without going into any detail here.

    And something like this would of course require lots and lots of testing, but maybe that goes without saying. :p

    So, what you basically need is a Python programmer who understands the inner workings of both versions of RFC and of CivIV multiplayer games.
