Thanks bigcosy, Vadim finally got one of my emails and sent me the key to game cheater once again. Something prevents most of my email from reaching him. What this is I have no idea. He did a special link for me in the event I had this problem again, so I can now download GC from this. Thanks anyway. And really, that game is almost more trouble than it is worth. Nothing like PT3 at all and not nearly as much fun.
Try Patrician 4 downloaded from Steam, then update to version 1.2, the join cheat happens.com as an unlimited member and download the latest 1.2 trainer. You will be singing a different tune. Kalypso, the game developer, seems to be listening to the message boards and making improvements and fixing bugs. This never happenned in Pat 3 or Pat 2.
