getting a bit frustrated. I use hotkey 6 to show me sub patrols. The whole screen slows to a crawl. I click on the strategic map and after about 2 minutes I get that area.
It gets worse when I use hotkey Z, search arcs. That takes about 5 minutes to show up and when I tried to look at another section of the map, the whole computer froze. I got the screen when I clicked, but I cannot transfer to any other program.
I am using windows 10.
When I alt-tab, I get a brief screen shot of everything that is open but I cannot click on any of them. I do a ctrl-alt-del and even that does not come up. I eventually, after 15 minutes of staring at the immobile screen, had to turn the computer off and restart.
PS please do not say I need to simply click on hotkeys 2, 7 and 32 and then enter xyz where xyz is my register number or birthdate or whatever, and then double click on the registry key. That makes no sense to me. I am not a programmer or even understand any such thing. I am a user and I expect to be able to load and run programs, rather than poke about under the hood (is that the expression?) And I am well qualified to tell you darned kids to get offa my lawn, so what advice can you offer a septuagenarian?
EDIT: I have read the previous posts re this slow problem and they all seem to say it's your switches. My reply is, What Bloody Switches? Where do I find them? The screen shot someone posted shows a completely different screen to mine.
And I am really enjoying the game. I now have daily dedicated WitP-AE time, especially with the COVID-19 lockdown. But this slowness in certain areas really bugs me (Yeah, I know, Pun not intended!). It seems that I can scroll well and if I have been investigating a base, if I right click, the scrolling works much faster. Don't ask me how it happens, I just idly right clicked one day and found myself scrolling faster.
Hot key K, the weather screen works fast. Even 5, the Supply path works once I give it time to do the number crunching.
It is just these two hot keys that irritate me. I want to find out where my sub patrol gaps are and the same with the Search arcs.
