Hi, I have no idea what to do at this stage ? I'm playing both sides solo (Barbarossa). I just launched an attack with the USSR infantry. And now it's German phasing for a Ground support attack. There was this bomber on the attack hex. I clicked on it but now it's frozen and there is apparently no other playable air unit or anything I can do to have the game going on with the next phase.
What am I doing wrong ??
Thank you.

Please post save game at ground support phase before sending planes.

Hi, it says "You cannot save the game at this point."

I had to close the game and restart with an older save. And this time it passed the sub-phase without any problem.
Very strange ... One more mystery in the universe.

That often helps. How many screens fo you have? There might be hidden window somewhere. Next time use alt + tab.

I believe this happened at the stage where you had your screenshot. I have saved game many times at the start of that phase before any planes fly.

Nope... I triple checked it !! There was no other window. I'm 100% sure.

IMO most probable cause, when you don't know how the game works, it's a pain in the ass, ... later it still is but you at least know how it's happening and sometimes get to bring the missing screen somehow and go on.

Sometimes they are "outside" the screen. This often happens when you are using 2 or more screens. Are you?

This just happened to me in the Barbarrosa on Turn 2 Russian first impulse and it wouldn't let me save etc. I spent the past hour reading posts until I found this one... only one screen on my laptop with Win10. Since I'm a newb just learning the game solitaire, I'll probably just start the Guadalcanal scenario to learn more about naval operations... I have the 2.9.4 beta.

Sh*t, I know that I solved it but don't remember how I did it. Maybe connecting a second screen and checking whether it was now visible? Can't recall...

Veterans: Is there a way to switch from one another of the tabs of the game through a system like Window's ALT+TAB?
