I'm wondering how do you make a truce with someone in philip of macedon? That's the one thing I still have not been able to figure out.
Not possible. You need to download the beta Gold version. Its free to try if you already have registered Philip of Macedon here, just make sure you apply for your new serial code.
Once you have the gold Beta it is a little button up the top right. in that screen you can try and get peace.
