Phew! Took a few weeks, but I finally read all the way up to this point!
1. Probably the game you are trying to think of is Football Manager 2009 or something like that. I know such a game is brought up from time to time over on the OOPT forum, and there is one thread dedicated to that game in the OT section there.
2. Even though I would love to see you "publish" the HOI 2 conversion here, you would be much better off trying to publish it IRL, if you can get the permission from Paradox to do so. You should be getting royalties for all the "work" you put into such a great effort!
And last, but not least:
I hold this AAR to such high praise! Stnylan, several pages back, wrote a much better acclaim than I ever could, for words fail me all too easily. And anything I could possibly say, will never do this justice.
I am rather upset that I ended up reading this as the first (and currently only) AAR on the Paradox forums that I have had the pleasure of reading thus far. I honestly have no idea how anything could top this, and I have a sinking feeling most other works would be a sort of "anti-climax," if you will, after going through this works. But who knows? I cannot judge until after I read a few more AARs, once I am completely through with reading the comments here!
And thanks again, if I haven't already thanked you, for such a great journey over the past month since I purchased my first Paradox game, and discovered this thread!
(I actually "owned" a copy of the first EU game, rather illegally, I am ashamed to admit, about a year after it was first released. I have since decided to make an actual real purchase, in order to patronize all those who have put forth such efforts to this community. Both a real copy of the first EU, and more recently HOI3. I no longer pirate any software and/or music, for I have come to really appreciate such works over the past few year. Anyway, I digress....)
