How do I pick another nation

I just bought the HoI3 collection (Don't have finest hour) but I am unsure how to select another nation... Every time I fire up the game I can only select between 4 scenarios: America, Japan, Germany & Russia.

Am I doing something wrong?

When you go on that screen just pick a scenario and click whatever nation you want, you don't have to choose one of the buttons. Those are just the main nations.

May I suggest watching my video tutorials on youtube? Your issue is adressed in the very first video :-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQ3D7qq61iw&list=PL177CF59636F80BD7

I finally got around learning to play this game too. Check those tutorial videos, they helped me a lot. I can actually play the game that has been sitting in my steam library for ages now.

Nice videos Surray. I hope it make the game more friendly to understand for new HoI3 players :)

it's also a little bit of cheat, but you dont have to use it necessarilly for cheating purpose... i sometimes use it to control the production of my allied nations... you just need to press ALT + 21 then type: tag ITA (you play as italy), tag GER (you play as germany), tag JA P (why the hell is JAPan censoder :-O ) etc. etc... it can be used on any nation in-game... for some of them i couldnt thouht of tags... but they are listed in game's files just remember to PAUSE your game before you do it!

Something funny too. If you pause the game, save, and reload the game, you'll be taken to the select country screen. Its possible to switch to a country you are at war with, disband thier entire military, save, reload as your country, and then laugh evily!!!

Phoenix and Dominator,

It's actually totally unecessary to save + reload, because as Branik points out you can simply TAG switch between nations by using their 3 letter nation code and the cheat console... It's quite good to make sure that your allies don't do absolutely insane build orders (Usually when I play as a non-GER axis country I stop GER from trying to build the 2 billion garrison (useless) divisions that the AI usually does) ...

And yes... Surray's tutorials are absolutely amazing ;)
