Any help appreciated. Finally trying to start another campaign game. Running windows 10 with an I-7 processor.
The game scrolls slooowly unless I turn hexsides off and then select an empty hex, whereby it scrolls acceptably
(any further tricks appreciated). MY ISSUE - When I select a base or unit it takes forever to pop the info screen
up. This is also true for any interaction within an info scree (trying to change unit status, revise destinations
etc)Also takes forever when I close an info screen. I've previously played with Windows 8, and don't recall having
this problem. I've tried changing compatibility properties, turning all other programs off, etc. Any help/advice
out there?

What is the path for the install directory of WitP:AE?

This is my Target line under the Properties option from right clickings on the AE icon;

"C:\Matrix Games\WITPAE RA Mod\Beta2\War in the Pacific Admiral Edition.exe" -skipVideo -fd -pxf1920 -pyf1080 -altFont -cpu2 -deepColor

This assumes that you have the latest Beta installed. Some graphic issues on play back of the turn, but still works well....GP

You're probably going to want to do Windows mode, if you aren't already.

Hi Guys! Thanks for your willingness to help. Shortly after I posted something about command line switches surface in my brain, and I searched my way to the answer. -which I think may have started with a Korvar post. Thanks again to you all! I go now to share the knowledge with my frustrated opponent.

Glad to hear that you got it sorted out!

If you need to help friends or make adjustments to your own configuration in the future, keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming release of my desktop app, SeaBee.


It will allow you to pick which switches to use (tooltips for each are provided):




It also detects where WitP:AE is installed (or you can pick) and then creates a shortcut for you:
