  1. I think one of the most exciting ways of playing this scenario is with Major, simply to see just how good a defeat you can get, and if you can narrowly squeeze into minority government position. It's immensely difficult to pick up more than 230-ish seats, which is great, because it presents a good challenge and is very realistic (basically, the Tories actually getting 230 seats in 1997 would have been considered a very acceptable defeat for them, I think). I have managed to get a Major minority government on one occasion. It was largely down to events, though. Halfway through the game a very

    If other people are getting the same bug as me (game crashes on Election night) then here's how to fix it; You'll notice that "Wicklow I" has been replicated twice. Go to your ridings data file and change the second one to "Wicklow II." It should work then. I like the scenario - it's very addictive! As you've mentioned, the German system is a bit awkward for Irish scenarios (you get a few weird situations where you rise in the polls but lose seats due to smaller parties rising above the margin needed for representation).
