Even after doing a what I thought was a complete uninstall then reinstalling & patching, the game is still locking up, mainly during combat resolutions. My PC is running Win 10, but I've set the game to run in in Win 7 & when I do a compatibility check it says something about "Scaling on high DPI" so I disabled it. My command line switch is as follows: "C:\Matrix Games\War in the Pacific Admiral's Edition\War in the Pacific Admiral Edition.exe" -deepColor -cpu2 -multiaudio -skipvideo.
Oh, and when I said I thought I did a complete uninstall I found there were still some file names left on the PC from the previous version, such as the 64-bit Editor & the documentation folder.
I'd add -fd -dd_sw -px1440 -py900 as well; just change the px and py to your screen resolution and it should be fine.
In Win 7 you can get the resolution currently in use on the desktop by right clicking the desktop to bring up the properties list. But I tried that in a Win 8 installation and no properties were shown on right clicking the desktop. I presume Win 10 will follow the Win 8 desktop model? How does one look up the native desktop resolution in Win 10?
