Game Features

6. What genre is Imperial Glory?
The land and naval battles are Real Time Strategy.
The management area is Turned Based.


7. How many maps does the game feature?
The game features over 50 maps, divided throughout Europe and North Africa, across 51 provinces and 31 maritime regions.

8. Is there a multiplayer mode?
Yes. You can go head-to-head against a maximum of 3 of your friends (which makes a total of 4.) You get an certain amount of Gold, which you have to buy your troops with. You can connect to a game via GameSpy, an IP address and LAN. You can play all land, naval and historical maps from the game. However, there is no online campaign mode.

9. How long will the Imperial Glory experience be?
You can literally spend hundreds of hours playing the game. This strongly depends how you wish to play the game. You can choose to play from 5 Empires; follow 7 different political systems; win on score or total victory; different difficulty levels; play customizable quick games and multiplayer games, and the list goes on!

10. Will there be an Imperial Glory 2 or expansion?
This is unknown for the moment.


Gameplay

11. What Empires can the player choose of?
You can play as one of the five great Empires of this period: Great Britain, France, Russia, Prussia or Austria. You can interact with all of the remaining nations across Europe and North Africa (think of alliances, protection pacts, rights of passage, trading, invading, etc.)

12. How can I command my troops when the game is paused?
You can’t. At first Pyro Studios had chosen not to implement this feature because it will slow down the action too much. However, because a lot of people still requested this feature, they have added a speed slider in the patch. This gives you to option to slow down the battle to a speed close to completely paused. Please see this thread.

13. How to use the “restore” button to heal my troops?
In order to do so you need to build a “Military Hospital” which requires you to research the Surgery technology, which is only available when you’ve chosen to follow Autocracy as your political system.

14. There are some countries which I can’t fully annex, how come?
Imperial Capitals (capitals of Great Britain, France, Austria, Russia, Prussia) cannot be annexed; rather, when you conquer one, the Empire will be considered “subjugated” and out of the game, provided that you maintain sufficient troops there. Rebellions may also occur in a capital following foreign invasion. If successful, the Empire will return to the game.

15. Do I really have to select a new technology to research after one has finished?
Yes. However, you can as well exchange Research Points for Gold. In the upper bar of the Research Tree you will see a green bar. Click it and a new window pops up, from where you can move a slider to exchange Research Points for Gold. The more points you exchange for Gold, the longer it will take to research an advancement. By moving the slider to the far right, research will come to an halt, until you start investing money in researching again.

16. I’ve finished researching everything in the 3rd Era, but now I’m stuck in the research screen!
Be sure you’ve researched everything from the 2nd Era. There are some advances there which you do not require to move on to the next Era, but you do need to research them to complete the research tree.

17. Are there any cheats for the game?
Unknown for the moment. However, there is a trainer, which gives you infinite resources of all kinds. It can be downloaded from the TAFN Downloads dB.


Software Issues

18. I’m having graphic/sound issues, what to do?
Be sure that your system meets the minimum system requirements (listed further up.) You might want to try to update the graphics and sound drivers, which can most likely be downloaded from the manufacture’s website. Also be sure you have the latest version of DirectX installed. People with an Intel graphics chipset, please see question below.

19. I get an error message saying “the game could not be initialized.”
The patch fixes this problem. Please see this thread.

20. I get an error message saying “disc could not be authenticated” or “insert original disc” (when original disc is inserted) or “emulation detected” (no emulation software used) or similar.
The patch fixes this problem. Please see this thread.

21. When the battle starts and I have the opportunity to arrange my troops, the camera gets stuck.
The patch fixes this problem. Please see this thread.

22. I can’t change the game speed on my laptop, because if I want to initiate a + I have to hold the Shift key.
TAFN has made a slightly changed v1.1 patch, which fixes this problem. It can be downloaded from the TAFN Downloads dB.

23. Will there be a patch for the game?
Yes, a patch has been released. The patch, which upgrades the game to v1.1, is for all versions, except the Czech one. This is because the patch will show up the tutorial text incorrectly. This will be fixed soon. You can find a list with fixes and a link to download in
this thread.


Game/Modding Guides

24. I’m looking for a players guide. Any good ones around?
No need to spend your money on a “Brady Games Strategy Guide.” At TAFN you’re at the right address, of course. So have a look at our players guide (with thanks to Giskard.)

25. Is it possible to mod the game?
Yes. A full guide will be available soon at TAFN. For now here’s a quick start: open the .pak files from the installation folder of the game using WinRAR and extract them to the same folder. Most files can be opened with a text editor or a graphics viewer. A list with the available file extensions and the programs to open them will be available soon at TAFN. You might also want to play around a little with these editing ‘tools’ which have been released by Pyro Studios. Also, have a look at this thread.

26. How do I change the hotkeys?
A guide on how to do this will be available soon at TAFN.

27. How do I enable blood in the US version of the game?
With the help of Captian.Crunch, TAFN has been able to create a blood patch for the game. It can be downloaded from the TAFN Downloads dB.



28. My question isn’t answered in this FAQ. What do I do?
Look around TAFN. There are trailers, screenshots and more to take a look at. If you still haven't gotten an answer go to the TAFN forums / Eidos forums and ask, we will then add your question to the FAQ. You might also want to check the .pdf manual found in the installation folder of the game. You require to have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed to open this document. It contains a lot more information than the normal manual in the CD case and there is a big chance it will answer your questions.

If you want to suggest any additions (be it new questions or extra information / corrections for a certain question) to this FAQ, please PM me.
