So I cant launch the game.. every time when I launch the game it show me an error. I contacted the support and if I good understand problem is in my language version of Win XP... So that path (c:document and settings/Administrator or your acc name/application data) which creating the save games and another files as your default option ect. But my application data are Data aplikací cose I have a czech version of Win xp.
Here is that error - GK2UnicodeException - an error occured while running Hegemony. Excepted 10xxxxxx while parsing UTF8 char.
So if is here anyone with same problem please send post to this threat. I tryed launch the game as admin with renamed directory "data aplikací" to application data but it didnt work.
So if have somebody some idea how to fix it please post it here.

As Ludvig mentioned the bug is due to the translation of the Application Data folder in the Czech version of windows. We have fixed the problem now and it will be included in the first update. I don't know if there is any way to get around the problem in the meantime but the issue is with the value windows returns for the common app data folder if that helps.

ok this post by rick was in another thread... it didnt seem to make any sense there at all i *think* it was intended for this thread but i dont know for sure. i'm reposting it here but dont blame me if its not for this question :D

If you're in a hurry, you can change the name of your application directory by following these instructions, but use HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE instead of HKEY_CURRENT_USER.

Be careful though, since you can screw up your computer if you don't know what you're doing. Otherwise, it's much safer to wait for the first patch to be released.
