First I must point out that I am no expert in this and, hopefully, one of the more knowledgeable people here will correct me if I am wrong but here goes:- This problem may be caused by a combination of things. 1. the Event 'SP-Lose' is much higher in the list of Events than the Medal Events and is (I think) checked before the others. 2.'SP-Lose' is set as 'years elapsed since game start>25' (check at beginning of year) and the Bronze/Silver Events are set as 'years elapsed since game start>=25' (check at end of year). This, combined with the point noted above, may mean that it will always give you a lose result. A possible solution is to move the 'SP-Lose' Event to below the 'Win-Bronze' Event. After doing this exit the Control Panel and save the game. I suggest re-naming the save as 'Great Lakes 1' so that you still have the original in case this does not solve the problem. An alternative is to change the 'SP-Lose' Event to >26 to ensure that the Bronze/Silver Events have a chance to take effect before the Lose (remember to save the changes under different names until you are sure you have a map that works correctly).
