    RoN is kinda bad? &nbsp;Honestly, the scope of RoN is a little too broad to make a balanced and nuanced RTS game. I have a lot of respect for BHG, Brian Reynolds is a good game designer, but I think he bit off more than he could chew in trying to encompass the whole of human history in the frame of a Real Time Strategy game.

    I did try the fan patch, got ambushed by the Robot patch, it completely hosed up my installation and I had to uninstall and reinstall from scratch.
