Playing Barbarossa with 2.5.2

Trying to provide ground support to an attack over the Nieman. Tried with both Stukas individually and either way, the game won't progress after the aircraft lands.

It did for me, but I noticed the land combat window appeared to the far right of my screen, nearly completely off screen in fact. My screen dimensions are 1920x1080. Perhaps you have something obscuring it.

I tried again - I just tried the one attack with Stuka accompaniment. Slightly different outcome this time - the screen turned Brown as though it were the Soviets turn - but still no combat screen anywhere to be found

Also tried without ground support. No change.

Maybe the combat form is hidden behind the main map? Try moving the main map to the side before going into combat so you can see behind it in later stages.

And can the brown colour be because you didn't have any panzers in the attack and it is USSR that selects combat table?

Edit: If there has been no solution to this then I take a look at it this evening.

I can move the screens around no problem (its not like the problem with air to air combat where screens get stuck behind but you can't get to them because the blocking screen doesn't move). I have moved all the individual screens but there is no combat screen on my computer.

Interestingly (perhaps) I just tried loading one of our Global War games, the combat screen appears and appears to work okay.

This is what I see on my screen.

Notice the window on the far right. I'm able to drag it back center of screen.

My screen dimensions are the same as yours. Sadly there is nothing to drag back. Wherever that combat resolution screen is, it isn't visible .

Right I have fixed this by switching monitors the other way round. This makes the combat screen magically appear and then, when I switch the monitors back again, the screen remains in place. What a palaver.....

I downloaded the game and ran it through the combat phase ok.

I did find the combat screen located to the right of the main map barely visible on the main display screen and was able to drag it to be fully on the main screen.

I have a 1920 by 1200 single monitor.

I have a similar problem with another form that goes all the way to the top. I found that if I grab the edge of the form and enlarge the form to my second monitor on the left I can then see the top and drag the whole form down.

Sounds like the same bug which Lex had with the setup units form, which was almost not visible on the screen...

I just changed the minimum amount of a form that is visible from 100 pixels to 300 pixels (version 2.5.5.3). Let me know if this still doesn't fix the problem.
