I just purchased War in the Pacific Admiral's Edition and down-loaded it to my desk-top and my net-book. Opens and works fine on desk-top, so far.

I get the opening menu on the net-book but when I click Play... , I get, “Error: Can't set screen mode”. I can open the game manual and the Admiral's Edition Editor. Small screen I know but still should work. Have done the search. Suggestions? TIA

Sorry if this is a duplicate post, got it in the wrong area first time.

I'd be extremely surprised if you could run it on a netbook. What's the resolution on the screen?

The screen needs to be able to support 1024 X 768 resolution.

a quick question please to our screen guru's : Does the px -py ratio needs always 4:3 ? IIRC, I made it on my old Monitor with 1280x1024 which isnt 4:3 exactly.

How to figure out which ratio in pixels will suit my beloved AE ?

thank you !

No, it does not.

If you are trying to use full-screen mode then use what your screen is, or if you want less then use one of the 'native' resolutions that your screen/video card supports.

If you want windowed more, then use anything equal to or less than what your screen is.

Here is mine just for an example.
