Doomsday Government Sliders

Paradox Doomsday v1.1 & v1.2 Readme

Installing Doomsday appears to create a conflict with HoI2 (note: this will be different on everyone's machine depending on where they installed Doomsday):

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\HoI2.exe]

It appears that if you delete this registry key then both HoI2 and Doomsday work (at least on my machine). There is no need to re-install.

Game speeds:

My group has run further testing. Our conclusion is that to play multiplayer "slow" is the fastest reliable speed once combat breaks out. Hence we figure that a reasonable game of playing from 1936 to 1939 at "normal" and then playing on "slow" from 1939 to 1943 results in a game lasting roughly 48 hours (aka 12 sessions at 4 hours per session).
