    IIRC, the only real changes which make this version incompatible with vanilla HOI2 is the section in the AI files dealing with spies. So, if this is deleted from every file in the modded AI folder, the mod should work.

    The relevant section should look something like this, and come after the diplomatic section of the .ai file:

    Code:
    ###################################
    # Spying
    ###################################
    spyprefs =
    {
    	percentage_on_spies 		= 0.2
    	percentage_foreign_mission 	= 0.7
    
    	# Used for Homeland Defense Spying
    	spyprefsdata = 
    	{
    		NumberOfSpies = 3
    		counter_espionage =  10
    		home_defence  = yes
    	}
    	# Defaul Spy parms used for countries the AI is atwar with but has no specific entry
    	spyprefsdata = {
    		country_priorities	= 3
    		NumberOfSpies		= 3
    		min_number_of_spies = 1
    		steal_blueprint 	= 10
    		minister_assassination = 1
    		smear_campaign 		= 3
    		coup 				= 4
    		sabotage_industry 	= 5
    		nuclear_sabotage 	= 0
    		found_partisans 	= 0
    		massmedia 			= 3
    		counter_espionage 	= 5
    		disrupt_techteam	= 5
    		country 			= NONE
    	}
    }

    is there a link to the version just before it converted over to DD? I would love to try it

    Thanks Sarmatia.

    I'd be willing to help do some work for this mod. It seems to be one of the few major mods that's going anywhere these days, so I suppose you guys could always use a helping hand. I'm not particularly proficient in any areas of microhistory (except for some knowledge on tank development -- both mechanically and tactically -- but I don't think that's too relevent), but I'm ok with the actual modding process, so I could pick up any slack on grunt work. I usually have an hour or so (sometimes more!) a day where I can sit down and do work.

    EDIT: I'm going about the deletion right now, but I want to warn you that Mongolia's AI lacks a spy section altogether.

    EDIT ON THE EDIT: Actually several 'minors' do.

    Don't be too sure its not relevant. I know that various possibilities have been discussed for modified tech trees and slightly different units to account for the different way strategy may have developed in this timeline. I'm not exactly sure of whats going on or how far its progressed but it could be that your knowledge would be handy there.
    No matter how bad you think things are, they're worse and you're just not paranoid enough to see it.

    Discusion on tech changes has reached a bit of a hiatus ATM. We were delaying it until the DD conversion, so I guess we should pick it up again.

    Specifically on tank design and use, we could certainly do with an extra hand, so any help is very much welcome.

    Polish Corridor???

    Just installed this patch, and it looks sooo cool. However, there are something that struck me as quite odd. If it is so that Imperial Germany won the Great War, why would they trade away large chunks of Prussia to create the Polish Corridor? Letting Poland have access to the Baltic was one of Wilsons demands in the peace settlement. Prussia was the main political part of Imperial Germany, the originator of the united German Reich as it were. This must be altered.

    Onwards; Suez is still in British hands – I thought I read somewhere here that the Brits relinquished control over all important colonial provinces to Germany. And India is a part of the Britsh Empire. No independence here.

    Furthermore; there is no Ottoman Empire – just Turkey.

    When I started the game (with this patch) it popped up several error messages, but it still worked. Just to let you know. I haven’t tried it yet, but I look forward to.

    Yup, down there, where the scenarios are, there is a Kaiserreich one, about the third from the bottom, IIRC. Only that will work normally.

    Right... Still nothing. I carefully did this!

    Patch Hearts of Iron 2: Doomsday to 1.2.
    * Extract the whole “Kaiserreich 1B” folder into your HOI2 directory, so the JSGME icon and Mods folder are in the same directory as your HOI2.exe.
    * Load up the JSGME application.
    * Select the 'Kaiserreich Beta 1b' icon from the left hand column, and click the “>” button to move it across.

    The next time you run the game, all the mod and scenario files will be active. Reverse this process to deactivate the files, and return to the vanilla game.

    IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS: Make sure your Doomsday is patched to version 1.2 (if not, error messages will appear on loadup), and that you select the Kaiserreich scenario at the bottom of the list.



    Still loads of errors, and there is a polish corridor. The Czech Republic is Böhmen so something has changed.

    The only scenarios are 1936, 1941, 1944, 1945 and Doomsday.

    They're not a high priority, but they will be considered in due time - we could probably do with some regional experts to help too!

    Onwards Democracy

    I eventually managed to get the game going. Choosing Norway it was quickly apparent that Scandinavia was to be the champion of democracy. Especially so when USA went to bits and pieces. Went into an alliance with Sweden and Denmark, and guaranteed the independence of every democratic country in the world. Built up a healthy IC, and built a notable strike force. DOWed France when they DOWed the Netherlands and allied them. Annexed France in conjunction to Germanys invasion. Got to keep (tho it became dutch territory) Belgium and the Normandie area. Wicked Italy paid the price, when Catholic Italy DOWed them. Sweden is now the proud owner of Sardinia! Hehe. Now onwards to crush the Japanese. The Norwegian Navy will have to play cat and mouse with the imperial Japanese fleet, as ours are grossly inferior. Can’t wait to continue.

    P.S

    Democracy isn’t really popular in this mod, now is it?

    First game of this wonderful mod has been great so far, however there seems to be a problem with minister deaths, namely:

    UoB HoS- Phillip Snowden, in RL he died in May 1937 but I'm entering 1940 and he's still standing!- thinking an event to move Britain out of isolation and peace- Snowden was a pacifist, so with turmoil bubbling, perhaps gets replaced by someone more jingoistic?

    Also George V is still Hos for Canada even though he died in January 1936, however if you push the UoB into capitalism Edward VIII is HoS, George having died promptly

    PS- Are there any leadership events for the UoB, namely pushing it out of isolationism? I could sware looking at this page or Mod site that there was a TUC election event to decide the new HoG. However my game has also seen a sedate France, does British foriegn policy change only happen when European War kicks off?

    There are no problems with the minister deaths - there just aren't any! I was waiting to code them all in one go, once we worked out who exactly is there and what government change events are likely to be in place.

    There are draft events for the UoB government in the subforum, but they haven't been fully systemized or revised yet.
