1.0.0.17
Released 9/23/2010

  • Special character fix for Windows usernames: Users with non-english characters in their windows username would experience a game crash. This has been fixed, and a forthcoming fix will address an issue related to this where game victories are not recorded in the Hall of Fame.
  • Default resolution fix for DX9: Some users who have non-standard or below the minimum specification resolutions crashed before starting. Now, the system will change to Windowed mode and start so it does not crash.
  • AI city weighting: AI will not quite as freely offer up their cities when asking for peace.
  • Gold per turn glitch: When agreeing to a deal for anything above 5 gold per turn in exchange for something else (like a luxury), the deal would always only pay 5 gold per turn, regardless of the amount proposed. This has been corrected.

the AI giving up cities needed to be fixed :) i had a long going war with the big guy on my island (he must have had like 15 cities),, finally ever other little empires joined in the fight. I thought this was a good time for peace. He took it and gave me everything but his captial. poor move on this part.. he has had out tech'd us too. 
ugh.. and a lot of unhappy ppl on on my part ^_^

Exact same thing happened to me. I figured I might just take one or two cities in the deal and leave it at that, but once he'd given me everything it made it too easy to just take his capital as soon as the peace treaty was over.

Good to know that AI isn't willing to fork over their cities nearly as easy. I bitch slapped Japan to one city when they gave me a freebie city when I offered peace.

The 5 gold per turn bug was incredibly annoying.  I was ripped off several times by that when I needed the income to pay city states.

I played an 8 hour game last night after the game unlocked on Steam for me and didn't run into any issues. I´m a big fan of Steam and they way they handle patching.
