Since in one mode of the single player, you can play forever, can you devolop higher techonolgy then muskets, since your game could potentliy go into the 19 hundreds. Or will there still be redcoats in 1941?

i think that you will have a certain ending time, just like rome total war, like you wont b able to pass a certain time period... or something

I read somewhere a long time ago that the game ends in 1820.

If there is still no winner after the time period has exceeded, you can just play on and on and on and on and on and... you get the idea. ;)

I have seen screenies with the year 1837... I think this is possible in domination mode... "take all countries and build a big empire".

So if there is no clear winner, do the nations still fight with Napoleonic uniforms weapons and tactics in 2005? Erm..isn't that a bit daft?

If you consider it daft you can quit before 2005 or use the other victory condition I would think.

Or you could say that the endless war that's been raging across Europe for almost two centuries now has crippled technological development and brought new advances to a standstill, therefore we still have redcoats in 2005...

Hmmm...

There's two types of Campaign game modes; Score Victory and Total Victory. Score Victory runs from 1789 to 1830 and then scores you at the end of that time. Total Victory "begins in 1789 and does not end until you have conquered the entire map... or you have been eliminated from the game."

Hope this helps. Rick

Two things:

1) I hope the endgame is better than MTW. After a certain point of clearly being able to win, the computer would just give itself tons of units from nowhere.

2) I hope the tech doesn't obsolete previous units. That is, going around with nothing more than say, Household Cavalry.
