**************UPDATED TO 1.5.3 Latest****************
please report any bugs or problems you encounter, i did 2 1945 test games and found nothing relevant but there may be something.


-not compatible (not fully tested try at own risk) with mod that add new techs units etc or mayor conversions/overhauls like black ice and Millenium dawn.

- if you have problems with UI set 0.7 on the UI scaling settings and up your resolution.

Somewhere on the south area of Nationalist China, a military manufacturer known as Shin-Ra Inc has emerged and claimed territory for it's own. The shin-ra company has discovered a powerfull power source called MAKO Energy, with that they made a powerfull army and researched advanced technology, noone knows this secret and now they are about to conquer the world, will you help them, destroy them or be them?, May this Country change the course of War and the world?.

-cannot start a new game and you get on edit mode? alt tab fix this issue usually.
-Some News events may repeat after a load a new game on the same game sesion, nothing major. (restart game before starting a new game fixes it)
-The back button on the country selection lobby dont work, i cant find the cause but im on it, there is a workaround by selecting select other country and then going back to menu.
