tslex -> DEMO Cannot see air launch command window on laptop screen (2/2/2012 3:55:46 AM)

OK, help.

Played Harpoon years ago and loved it. (As in early 90s on a Mac Centris.) Saw that HCE demo was out and downloaded it. Using my laptop (very strong Lenovo ThinkPad) docked to my screen at my office, no problem. Go to launch an air patrol or attack, and i get the little dialog box asking me which A/C to launch, allowing me to set courses, select targets and patrol routes, etc.

But when playing at home on just the laptop -- NO JOY. I cannot see/find/raise that box.

For example, I hit select an airbase, hit the LAUNCH button, it asks me PATROL ATTACK FERRY, but then when I select the mission type, no box to select the A/C to launch, or the targets to attack or the route to patrol.

Laptop screen is a wider ratio than the screen at my office, so I suppose that's the issue. But I cannot FIND the window to move it; and WINDOW drop down offers no help.

Would really like to get back into this and -- if it's as fun as it used to be -- buy the new release. But -- for now -- NO JOY.

Suggestions.

Shut down the game.

Download and run Tool to clear registry settings, which will reset window sizes.

When you start the game again, the pop up windows and dialogs should be ok.

You will have to re-arrange the game windows again to your personal tastes, though.

Let us know if this works for you.

Nifty.

Seems to have worked -- but I'm at office on that monitor, so we'll see at home tonight on the laptop's native screen.

Is this a tool I need to run each time before the game is opened, or should I expect this to be a one time fix?

Thank you for the VERY prompt and helpful reply.

Happy to hear it worked, and yeah, should be a one time fix.

Glad to help, and hoping you will enjoy HCE! [:)]

In general it is a one-time fix, in actuality you'll end up running it when:
1. You change the windows font size (i.e. Normal, Large, Extra Large)
2. You significantly change your screen resolution and can no longer see dialogs (i.e. the dialog is trying to show on a second monitor that you no longer have).

Yet another in a long list of todo items, adjusting to those changes automagically.
