Ah I'm on HPM, worked first time for me. It's still a little railroaded for French Algeria, soon as Nationalism and Imperialism was done full sized Algeria just fucking pops up under tiny French Algeria and France gobbles them up.
France is a right cunt on this playthrough, they were my ally at first and helped me take out Two Sicilies, but then rebels went ballistic and booted me out and I couldn't get the wargoal again, and at some point I lost France as an ally and wound up with NGF.
NGF is alright but fucking Austria has allied with the Brits and France has allied with the Russians. Soon as I formed Italy everyone went bonkers trying to steal my fucking land, luckily I only lost part of Italy and a decent colony rather than the two good chunks of Italy they wanted of course they took the one province I had with coal
