I can't join the Allies as the US at 0% probability, and in a previous game I couldn't get finland to join Axis.

What is causing this problem and how can I correct it? Is there a resource that would explain the diplomacy AI I can look at?

Im 99% sure you cant join the allies before France falls. I could be wrong though.

Thanks, but France has been gone for a long time.
It's 1942 and I'm at war with Japan. Phillipines still hasn't fallen but China was defeated by AI Japan. I wouldn't have expected that to matter though. The European war is still going on and the UK gives me mil access but won't let me join, even if I declare separately on Germany.

That's... not possible. Even after PH you can join UK alliance. Did you make any prior alliances before the UK?

No I didn't make any myself. The US starts with Philippines and Liberia in africa as puppets already. All I had going on was typical trade agreements.

Did you try the F12 cheat "acceptall"? I haven't played as the U.S. in years so I don't recall if it automatically joins the Allies by event, decision, or when Germany DOWs after Pearl Harbor. Also, maybe your isolationism is too high. That's all I have.

Edit: Actually, now that I think of it, it's too late to use the accept cheat. I'm pretty sure you can't join an alliance when you're already at war except by event/decision. Even if you're at war against the same nations.

I did not try the cheat.
At the time I was trying to experience the game without resorting to cheating to force it, and doing a more or less historical 90 division US run.
