    Great - I'll need to put you on ready-reserve if that is ok. I think you stand a very good chance of getting in the game. What is your email address so that I can send you a test game - just to rule out any technical glitches.

    @Others - if we don't have 5 people, I would like to insert an equal number of AIs as humans so that we have someone non-human to bash on. I would make sure that it is human-AI-human-AI-etc around the inland sea. Comments?

    Sounds OK to me; who doesn't enjoy bashing on those AIs? :)

    Roster [game closed]:
    Ruff as Churchill of Korea [GMT-5] - test game passed
    Dreylin as Isabella the Viking [GMT-6?] - test game passed
    SmokedSalmon as ? [GMT 0]
    mc-red as liz. of india [GMT 0] - test game passed
    mlindert as Kublai Khan of ? [GMT +1] - test game passed

    We also have TheArchduke on ready-reserve. As you can see, 4 of the 5 test games reported back no problem. Well, mc-red had major problems but that was resolved by moving the GoldenAge mod from its my-docs location to the my-progs location.

    Just waiting on SS to report back and then we can get going.

    SS and mlin still have time to change their leader and / or civ.

    In single player AW there is no comminication with the AI (diplo is off).
    Is that how this will work in the PBEM?

    I just found out that I am going to be away for a big hole starting real soon. TheArchDuke - my spot is now up for grabs so if you can open the save, you can take it.

    Make certain you haven't got a "GoldenAge" subdirectory in the base "goldenage" subdirectory - that's what happened with mine first-off.

    Yeah, but I un-packed it wrong the first time and had to adjust. Just thinking that if I did that, so might have TheArchduke....

    Have you started a test game under the Mod? I thought mine had installed OK, but the test game didn't kick off the Golden Age as expected.
