From: The bright side of life
I recently started again playing War in the Pacific - Admiral's Edition.
Due to time constraints I mainly focus on playing scenarios against the AI.
Most of the scenarios do not use the full map, but only a portion of it.
In case the actual useable map is way smaller then your display window, the map will start jumping when scrolling.
As I always like to play in Windows mode on my large screens, this typically results in very, very poor scrolling behavior with jumpy maps.
This drives me crazy!!! , but ok it is a rather old game.
Now after a lot of testing, I found the following window sizes being helpful to achieve smooth(!) scrolling of the map.
003 The Battle of the Coral Sea: 1400 width, 1350 height (or smaller like 900)
004 Guadalcanal: 1400 width, 1350 height
In the corresponding command line of the Shortcut to the game you need to put something like this (all other switches of course depend on your individual config):
"..\War in the Pacific Admiral Edition.exe" -wd -pxf1400 -pyf1350 -skipVideo -archive -deepColor –dd_sw -AltFont
005 The Thousand-Mile War: 1706 width, 1000 height (or smaller like 800)
"..\War in the Pacific Admiral Edition.exe" -wd -pxf1706 -pyf1000 -skipVideo -archive -deepColor –dd_sw -AltFont
This setting now finally allows for VERY SMOOTH (!!!) scrolling at the edges of the map.
Unfortunately it seems that it is not possible to achieve full-map coverage within a window w/o scrolling. Please let me know if you found a proper setting for this. But I am happy the way it is now, works for me.
I will also update this post with additional settings when I am playing other scenarios with such limited maps.
