It really depends. Sometimes I manage to sneak in a fleet of two or three subs near a major city like Moscow or London. If that's the case, I'll usually have them blow their load immediately and cross my fingers. Other than that, I've found that patience really pays off. In a Europe vs. Africa game ...

The president to general Turgidson and the Russian ambassador moments after their struggle -caused by the general trying to plant a microcamera on the ambassador- is broken up. Mr. President, we cannot allow a mineshaft gap! General Turgidson to the pr...

The problem with having a rolling demo as a screensaver would be that it hogs system resources. I guess the best way I can think of to do this is record several rolling demo games as movie files and somehow program those into a screensaver, rotating the games randomly.

Sorry to be a negative nelly here, but I'd say playing as Australia would be extremely unfair. All your silos will be so densely concentrated on the relatively small landmass that it will be virtually impenetrable for anything airborn, and you have direct submarine access to every territory but Euro...

The only thing I kind of dislike about it is that in the heat of battle, it can be hard to tell the bombers apart from the airplanes. It's pretty nice otherwise.

Thanks for the hint, it seems I have the same problem as you. However, the extra network connection I have can't be disabled. I get the following error: It is not possible to disable the connection at this time. This connection may be using one or more protocols that do not support Plug-and-Play, or...

I have a similar problem. I've set Windows Firewall to accept both the game and the ports it uses, and I've opened the ports on my routers too. Even after setting my LAN IP as a DMZ, the game still won't work. Trying to delete the config file didn't work.
