    hmmmm usually when I hit windows key, I can only see the stuff on the bottom and the game is frozen until I click back on it.

    My game pauses as soon as I alt tab out of it.

    games are getting worse and worse at alt-tabbing

    trying to alt-tab TF2 means sandwich time for me

    pausing sometimes isn't enough, you gotta hit esc to be able to safely tab out all the time

    I just wish I could lay waste to cities easier. It's a pain trying to move an army around a CPU city

    its so much easier to let the cities do that to themselves, tyrannus

    just make sure to destroy their warehouse and the people'll eventually riot

    oh my, Tales of Monkey Island is amazing

    I've had more giggles and laughs out of that one episode than out of the entire first season of Sam & Max (which I absolutely loved)

    really this game is amazing on every level, everyone should buy it

    In mission three when I took over the town from Joan of Arc the people quickly rioted because they didn't have anything to drink. It was the great cider riot of 1404. I was like, drink some damn water you pricks.

    There's obviously fresh water somewhere. You don't grow hemp with salt water, or make cider with salt water either.

    Actually when things are going well they're really grateful. If you ever need to feel better about yourself just click on a house full of satisfied peasants and they'll tell you how wonderful you are.

    honestly is there like a walkthrough for all the little sidequests

    I just finished the second level and all the quests in the stats were nice and lit

    There's the official prima strategy guide yay!

    Otherwise I haven't been able to find any online guides, and I don't really expect to find any because this is an obscure German game that morons working at IGN or Gamespot or 1up won't cover. Well maybe they'll cover the DS and Wii version.

    okay, so, third mission in the campaign. The Wormtongue rip off says he's gonna come down to "inspect my work" after I built the Harbor Master's Office, and... that's it. no additional quest, no ship on the way nothing. Am I missing something here?
