Can you please explain what you mean person from my sister city?

What do you mean by "game label"?

I myself don't understand this well, and I've been looking for a long time how to install game to Windows 8.0 on new computer.
But you have to choose one of these options so that your game works correctly:
right click mouse to WiTP AE.exe and Options. After "C:\Matrix Games\War in the Pacific Admiral's Edition\War in the Pacific Admiral Edition.exe" you need add one of this:

Other Switches
-colorBlind : Support for color blindness
-deepColor : Enables 32 bit color, intended for Full Screen mode
-altFont : Enables alternate in-game font (Lucida Sans Unicode)
-w : Windowed mode
-wd : Windowed mode, daily autosaves
-ww : Windowed mode, weekly autosaves
-fd : Full screen, daily autosaves
-fw : Full screen, weekly autosaves
-r : Show Roads -autosave : Daily autosave
-archive : Put data reports in archive directory
-skipVideo : Skip the intro video when starting the game
-fixedArt : Will not use rotating images

-dd_sw -px1600 -py900
-dd_sw -f -px1600 -py900
-multiaudio -cpu2 -dd_sw -px1600 -py900
-multiaudio -cpu4 -dd_sw -deepColor -px1600 -py900
-multiaudio -SingleCpuOrders -dd_sw -px1600 -py900

-altFont -multiaudio -dd_sw -deepColor -px1600 –py900 -cpu4
-altFont -multiaudio -dd_sw -deepColor -f -px1600 –py900 -cpu4
-altFont -multiaudio -dd_sw -f -px1600 –py900 -cpu4
-multiaudio -deepColor -f -px1600 –py900 -cpu4
-multiaudio -dd_sw -deepColor -px1600 –py900 -cpu4
-multiaudio -dd_sw -deepColor -f -px1600 –py900 -cpu4

for example my works correctly so: -dd_sw -deepColor -f -px1600 -py900
Sorry, I now my english is not perfect.

Yes, I use quite a few switches in my command line including one that provides the low resolution I need for my tired old eyes; 1280x720.

Still not sure what you mean by "incorrect". What do you see in my display screenshots that is incorrect?

This install is running on Windows 10.

look at your screen and my. My works correctly. Your font is distorted. Do you see You must change options and find correct settings.

Explain to me how do you attach screen in text?

My font is the Alt font while yours is the original.

The Alt font is not as tightly spaced as the default font and sometimes very long names will run over the adjacent column.
Otherwise I greatly prefer the ALT font as it is sans serif and much easier on these tired old eyes.

There is nothing incorrect with my settings.

Not sure why you are asking for an explanation of how to embed images in the text as you just succeeded in doing so.

If you like Alt font - OK, up to you! Sorry!

I'm using download site for this (I really do not like it). You do this with attachment. I don't know how to do this on this site.

Embedding pictures is enabled in the reply interface in the lower left.
You probably don't have it enabled yet due to your low post count.
I'm pretty sure they have a minimum post threshold for enabling it to deter trolls.

Example of reply interface with picture embedding enabled:

The threshold is only 10 posts, so he should have no problem.
But you need to take a screen image using the PrtScr key or a screen capture program and save the image in one of your folders first. After that, the text at the bottom of the post window will let you browse to your folder, select (called "open" on the screen) the picture and return to the post to embed the picture.

The minimum post count might be 100, not 10.

Also I believe only .jpeg are supported.

This is the "Fast Reply" screen. If you click on the "reply" button on the last post in the thread, it will bring up the screen that allows embedding pictures.

JPG and GIF are supported.

Hans - great post!

Got one question....when a CV receives replacement planes from a repl TF CVE, shouldn't they also come with pilots?

I only ask as I just had a replacement TF CVE provide about 5 F6Fs to Enterprise, but just the planes, no pilots.

May Jpas CVEs act in that role too? It will increase their utility a lot.

Thanks

Sorry for the late reply. That's a very good question. I always assumed both plane and pilot transferred. Although I have not monitored it closely, I don't recall any pilot shortages on combat CVs following transfers and I do consistently see shortages of pilots on the replenishment CVEs.

I typically try to pull pilots to the reserve squadrons from reserve rather than replacement.

Cannot recall any specific instances where only planes transferred.

Thanks Hans. I assumed planes and pilots would transfer together - but definitely didn't happen in my Big E example. Perhaps it was due to that the "threshold" wasn't reached in needed pilots - Enterprise still had 45 fighter pilots avail. I'm sure I'll have plenty of further losses to test how this works in the coming turns!

But I'm certainly rethinking having a full pilot compliment on the replenishment CVEs if there aren't needed!

Just tell us how the pilots that left their aircraft on your carrier walked back to the CVE ....

Actually BB, this isn't too far off...


That was one of the uses of the TBFs - replacement planes would be flown to the CVs, then any unneeded pilots would cram into the TBF for a ferry trip back to the CVE!

But the rub is that the TBF can't land on the overstuffed CVE unless enough planes ferried out to CVs to reduce the overstack to allow flight ops.

Curious, why have DDs with the CvEs when DEs are what most use to escort the CVEs?

I am using exactly what was used historically, a combination of DDs and DEs.

I typically equip a CVE division of 8 CVEs with 4 fletchers and 4-6-8 DEs (numbers increasing as totals of DEs increase)

If you recall the famous Battle off Samar (The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors) it was both fletcher DDs and DEs that were escorting the Taffys and took on BBs and CAs.

The Johnston, Hoel and Heer IIRC were all Fletcher class DDs.
