Updated to 1.35 here are the changes:

Whats the contents of your prefs.ini file? It sounds like a sound card related problem, but we have no changed anything relate to that in this version. Did your version of windows just get updated? Does sound play ok in other games and on websites?

I updated my windows and I installed my driver updates for my card. It worked, what was strange was that v1.34 worked inspite of this, oh well.

I didn’t try other games, but no sound was playing in websites after sometime, even though it was playing earlier.

It sounds like you have a problem with the drivers for your sound card in that case.


Heatwaves don’t increase CO2 emissions as they do in real life.

Heatwaves should reduce the impact of reforestation due to burning trees.

Can deforestation be modeled in some way or is that represented by GDP?

Interesting point, although I would suspect that the actual volume of forests destroyed in a heatwave is relatively low. I will have to look for data. My gut feeling is that deforestation globally in places like the amazon dwarfs the loss of some Californian forests though. Definitely worth me looking into it :smiley:


How have environmentalists not killed you? :smiley: you must be in full on police-state mode right?


I don’t play with assassinations :smiley:
And even then everyone is too brainwashed.

I think assassination risk only matters during transition, if I was playing with it.

Soils under high temperature also release CO2 in vast quantities.

it would be interesting to know if what you did was even possible with assassinations turned on. Also interesting to know if its possible at 200% difficulty.


Could we have a fix for the Windowed Mode not working?

Not working how? i’ve been testing the game in windowed mode all day. Whats going wrong in your experience?

My game doesn’t recognize Windowed mode when I select the option. When I exit and come back, it loads in fullscreen rather than windowed mode.

For windowed mode to kick in you need to select a window size smaller than the current desktop, otherwise it will revert.

Oh, I thought that it was automatic. Didn’t know that it was manual. Usually games have it as automatic.

Well if you set fullscreen at normal desktop res it should shunt into borderless windowed mode, but you cant visually tell the difference between that and fullscreen, apart from alt+tab works much better.

Hmmmm… I didn’t expect that, usually windowed mode is more obvious, and borderless windowed mode is a separate option. Maybe borderless windowed mode could be a separate option in settings?

Cryptocurrency crash is too frequent. In fact when I have crypto tax enabled, it can actually push some of my liberal self-employed into poverty, with how many times it can stack.
