I have version 3.3 and some map are very too small ... why its not possible to put them full screen? When i begin a turn and have more than 2 cards i cannot see the top of the map and cannot see how many army I have on some spot of the map. Maybe add an option to hide cards or enlarge the windows to put cards outside of the map .. something like that. Thats not a problem with all the maps, but with some of them.. like mediterranean, Europe, USA...

Thx to think about it in next version

Those maps you mentioned are all specifically designed for Pocket PCs which only have a screen resolution of 240 x320 so the maps have to be small.

My advice is just don't play on the Pocket PC maps!

its a nice option to have when you have a 19" monitor with 1280x1024 resolution.

Full screen, the ones that take SOOO long to close and are HUGE in file size

Need v1.1 Conquest

Longtime SLAY player and buyer and just purchased Conquest. Got it home from internet cafe and discovered that my NEC Mobilepre 880 cannot run the new 'Pocket Conquest'. It can break down the CAB file, and I can see the new map, but further than that--no go. O chagrin! Possibly in upgrading the game for WinMobile 2003 it was made unuseable for older CE systems. However, I did indeed pay, so would it be unethical to request from Sean or another player a copy of one of the older versions of Handheld Conquest that is compatible with hpcPro?
Why did I make such a bonehead mistake?
A (belated) careful scrutiny of Sean's site reveals that Handheld Conquest pay version is offered, but nowhere is there provision made for actually getting such product except as maybe part of a package for $45:

Everything $45 (about �27 or ?38)
Get everything for Windows, Pocket PCs, Handheld PCs and Palms in one go for a big discount

Games for Pocket PCs / Windows Mobile
All the Pocket PC games $30 (about �18 or ?25)
PocketSlay, PocketConquest and PocketGeneral
PocketSlay $20 (about �12 or ?17)
Slay for Pocket PCs
PocketConquest $20 (about �12 or ?17)
"Risk" for Pocket PCs
PocketGeneral $20 (about �12 or ?17)
"Stratego" for Pocket PCs

I'm probably the only knucklehead who got confused by that, and yes, one day I shall get myself new gear, but darnit, I wanna play NOW! I thank you all for any assistance.

u can open the map with Microsoft Paint (or photoshop etc),
then set the width to ~500
then start the game again.
