    Hullo. I take it the link to the saved game with the rule changes (e.g. unit support for Republic) is taken down once the game is underway and you can then only use the 'Open Class start save file' (which I assume is default PTW settings? So I have missed the boat for France / Deity?

    OR

    Am I blind and missing something? (i.e. the non-Open Class save game location).

    There is only one save. (We used to have several versions - easy, regular, and hard - but we don't anymore.)
    The open save has the standard rule changes. Download it and start playing. (I haven't started either. Maybe next week.)
