[FIXED B711] select-a-side dialogue box does not appear - 5/30/2015 3:57:53 PM

I bought the game thru Steam - it appears to be version 1.07. I can open the game. I can click the Start New Game button. I can see the Load Existing Scenario list as shown on page 11 of the game manual but when I highlight a scenario or a tutorial in the menu list and click on the Load Selected button, the Select-a-side dialogue box does not appear. The dialogue box does not appear to be "hidden " under another window. It is just not there so I can't progress any further.

Am I missing something really stupid?

I have had this game for several months - so far it has the same functionality as Google Earth.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi
I also have this issue, previously it has worked fine but now I'm stuck as I'm unable to choose a side. I've tried the 'Reset secondary windows' option under 'Game options' but this has not helped me and I'm only using one monitor (laptop).
My version is 1.07 also (build 678).

Try closing command. Delete the command.ini file and then restart. This file stores all your game preferences and will be automatically rewritten with default values.

Mike, thanks - I have tried your suggestion but there is still no select-a-side dialogue box so I can't see how to progress into an actual scenario and play it. Pretty much the only thing I can do is navigate the globe. It's a bit frustrating.

What resolution are you using?

If you install the beta over the top does it correct the issue?

Grab it here:

Just install into your Command directory. Backup your Commmand.exe file.

Thanks!

Mike

Thanks, command.ini didn't work for me either. I'll try the beta. How stable is this beta and will it autoupdate to a 'proper' release when there is one?

Just tried the beta - didn't resolve the problem. I've also previously done a full re-install. Most frustrating... any other ideas?

Sorry this is frustrating. If I could run over to your house and just fix it I would.

Ok let me ask you this.

Go into the game, start a new scenario and select the Duelists scenario. Do you see the screen in the screenshot below after you press the load selected button? If you don't let me know.

If so then you are seeing the select a side dialog. If the scenario is two sided you can change sides by selecting the sides from the dropdown at the top. If it is just a one sided scenario only the playable side will be available. After your selection is done you press the select side button and will enter the scenario (there is no further side selection dialog after pressing this button).

Thanks!

Mike

Kep in mind the "Select side" button is to actually choose the side. It does not open up another dialog for choosing a side. If you hit the select side button, it takes you right to game options dialog. My first play through, I was confused by that.

We're going to change the button name to "Enter Scenario" or something similar regardless. We think this is the issue

Sorry MikMyk but upon entering the 'Duelists' scenario after hitting 'Load Selected' I still don't get a screen that pops up to enable me to choose a side...

What screen do you see. Can you post a screenshot of it?

Ok... after meddling I think I've found a fix. I've got a 4k laptop screen (screen resolution 3840x2160), wondering if there is some compatibility issue I've done the following:
In the install location right click on 'Command.exe' -> 'Properties' -> 'Compatibility' and then ticked the checkbox named 'Disable display scaling on high DPI settings'.
Upon doing this when I next run the game the 'select side' dialogue box returns.

Perhaps I now need to start a thread on using the game on high DPI screens now as the layout of the buttons and screens is not good...

Ah.. well we did ask your resolution and response may have gotten us there. Glad you're now seeing it though.

You can start any threads you want.
