I have a Windows 10 computer, 16 Gig RAM, 3.40 GHZ Processor AND if I boot up War Plan Orange I can wait seconds for the map to move or a menu to open. Any known workarounds?

fix this by:

1.) Copying your War Plan Orange.exe and then renaming the copy WPO.exe

2.) Create a Text File labelled WPO_Affinity.txt

Inside that text file, put:

start /affinity 1 WPO.exe

Rename text file to

WPO_Affinity.bat

And run that every time you want to play WPO. It will start it in core affinity mode for the first CPU in your computer.

I tried this and it didn't work for me. I even tried the guide by zak and NO JOY. It went to the loading screen, loaded the files and then went blank. I could hear music in the background, but then nothing. I had to logout of Win 10 to get back to my main screen.

Windows 10 Pro Ver 1709 Build 16299.309
Intel i7-7700HQ CPU @ 2.80GHz, 2801 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
RAM 32.0 GB
Intel HD Graphics 630
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060

Not sure if dual video is the problem, though I can dedicate either one to the game.

Thx.

i ask and do one just for this game and see if i can get my head around it, shouldn't be that hard as others so far have all worked fine, only 2 in the whole game collection refuse to work with windows 10 so far, but they were also fussy with windows 7 and 8 etc

Great! Thanks. Miss playing.

Another note, do the command switches for WitP work with WPO?

Any success? I thought I had it working but it kept crashing after a couple of turns.

Will do, thanks.

BTW, are there any updated scenarios for WPO? The only one I have "WPO Dreadnaughts at War" has a couple of corrupted files. I have not been able to find another.

The few scenarios I have found are mainly for PBEM or hotseat which I don't do.

Thanks Zak - I reinstalled per your instructions and the game is finally playable for me after many months of trying everything I read on the boards. I am a fan of keeping it simple and you nailed it!
