so it's working, some slight errors with some txt but minor at best, and tbh playing with settings may help with these a bit further tbh.

so what worked for me is 3d screen smaller,.

and still nothing altered on the shortcut either regarding compatibility settings etc, so none used or altered atm.

not saying it won't be needed, but with testing atm it's working fine for me, so no alt tab, and game works, slight error with some screen txt, but will play with this for a while and see if it can fix that also with some alterations in screen size etc or combo compatibility shortcut altering, but for now, i'd live with it how it is, as it's working 98% fine for me,...

just testing settings more atm, so if everyone follows the guide and alters it to suit there own settings etc, for me it shouldn't be that hard to get some to suit your own screen size, the test i'm on atm is using the smaller of the two shown for both to see if that's better as the game seems to stretch to fit anyway so using smaller than my default for both may work better




test 9, ok, but doesn't look at good as 32 etc, so trying another one now

so no matter what i change, i can now get away with no txt errors in game and still play it full screen, with again no short cut alteration, so imo sorted and fixed, with little in the way of real time spent, a few hours at max tbh

and menu's almost sorted but plenty good enough to play, but the blue box never ever goes to cover the overlay, so maybe that's a max size and how it is, and never made it larger, no matter what size i put it on, but all buttons and labels work and are in the right place etc now





there, hope that's better?

if you wish to see a certain part, give me a save and i'll load it and show it

Thank you for all of your effort. Have you tested campaign battles without a crash? Are you able to exit from battles and save without a crash?

yes but only for a few turns, i didn't finish a campaign, with saving and loading, there is a pause, so you have to wait for the screen to appear, sometimes i alt tabbed in and out and back in again to see the screen, which was there once i did it, same as the options menu, it's slow some times and you think it hasn't worked, but has, but for some reason there is a slight delay, rest of game is instant, so these 3 things make you think it's faulty or broken, but wait a few seconds or alt tab and then go back and each time it worked as normal for me

Its not the campaign map that has issues, its when you get into the 3d battles with 100s of planes, the game usually crashes with a text error within a few minutes. Also when in the 3d battles when you try to exit after a big fight and hit alt x, the game usually crashes. That is what I would like you to test. Just load up the first campaign, fast forward the time until enemy squadrons make contact, jump into a 3d battle, and see if you can fight for 10 minutes with out a crash, and then see if you can alt x out of it back to the campaign map. I would really appreciate it if you did those things, to see if we have a miracle break through.

Thank you zakblood. With the end of the school year as a teacher, tutoring, getting ready to move, and getting married in June, I don't have too much time to keep testing things to see if they work, I rather play with what I know is working like Cliffs of Dover, IL Sturmovik BOS, or Falcon BMS. Good luck and I really hope you found the cure for this awesome game that just won't work in windows 10.

sorry not had time, i could do with a save off someone at a given point and then continue from there, as then i can or could at least get a understanding on what or where it crashes and why etc, instead of having to do it my self and maybe it never happening, this is why all developer like saves from a given point and instructions on what to do and how you got there etc so can replicate it, as for me i'd just end turn for 3 turns or 20 odd and see what happens, so not actually playing it, just a test for a given and known crash

No save needed. Just start the British campaign on July 10th, fast forward to the first enemy contact, then fly. (This takes a minute.) Save the campaign before flying. Two things cause the crash in 3d. Flying into 100s of enemy planes in the campaign, and then hitting alt x to exit. So first try flying around the 100s of enemy planes for a few minutes, but I doubt that you will make it for more than 5 minutes, most likely it will crash in the first minute. (And just make sure that you have the invulnerability setting, so you don't have to worry about being shot down.) If there is no crash after flying then try to exit back to the campaign hitting "alt x" If you can get the game to work without those things causing a crash, you will have performed a miracle. People have tried for a couple of years.

If you try this I and many others will be very thankful, even if you do not get it to work. But you seem to really know what you are doing, so we have hope.
