Having alot of trouble trying to read the pop-up windows to read clearly the text(white)it is blocky and hard to read.Also when I guide the mouse over various parts of the screen i get a momentary flash and then some blurriness.I have played with various resolutions I can with my monitor go as high 2560x1440 and have matched the game at this I still get the block/blurring lettering.I am running 2 gtx770's I have tried disabling SLI as well as running it in SLI.If anyone has any thoughts they would be greatly appreciated as I really want to get started on this fabulous game,thank you.

Read the thread on game being slow - it contains info on the switches that the game needs to connect with newer processors and newer versions of Windows.
Once you understand what the switches are for and how to type them into your game shortcut properties, you can experiment with what settings of resolution work for your system. If you find it too overwhelming, try the SeaBee Alpha utility offered in this forum to automate getting the switches set up.

If you are still having problems makes some screenshot .jpg files and post them here so forumites can help you. There could be some Windows settings around transparency of windows that need to be set as well.

I haven't had any problems, and I'm really not familiar with the command line switches, but that's where you will find your resolution to these type of problems. You need to look in that thread.

Well thats the thing I did do the switch thing for instance I set it at my desktop resolution
@2560x1440 and it did got to 2560x1440 pretty small resolution with the lettering and all
but it is still pixelated where the white text is kinda of a blur readable but not clear text
and some kinda momentary flash/blur where the text gets a little fuzzy if you hover the mouse just right.
I put in seebees mod but it does not seem to be working at all.very frustrating.I have been working on getting a newer graphics but with all this dam data mining going on with these newer cards nowadays the price has not gone down that much and I am hesitant to buy someones hand-me down on ebays thats been running nonstop for the last year and a half F.U BITCOIN!

Try -AltFont in your switches, maybe that will help.

Ok added altfont line line and it seems to be well better I guess.
My question is this-------> "F:\Matrix Games - AI\War in the Pacific Admiral's Edition\War in the Pacific Admiral Edition.exe" -altFont -skipVideo -SingleCpuOrders -deepColor -f -px1280 -py960


1)what is-------------> -deepColor?
2)what is-------------> -f
3)what is-------------> -px1280 -py960


now for #3 I know what that is but....are #2 and #3 related?

-f is for full screen mode as opposed to -w for windowed mode.

according to the documentation

-deepColor : Enables 32 bit color, intended for Full Screen mode

When you have the SingleCpuOrders switch, you really should select a CPU number. Mine is -cpu3, because CPU1 is used by Windows and CPU2 is often used by anti-virus and other background programs.

why does the screen flash when I click on a task force base etc...and when I move the mouse around in the box and have a collision with text inside said display I get a little flash.This is the heart of my problem any thoughts?

Have you tried installing the game using the Seebee app?

For your flashing problem, see this thread: https://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4725274

It seems to be a problem with windows 10 and full screen display mode.

1920x1080 is most definitely not the default. If that is happening it is because you are not applying the new value correctly.

Make sure that you use the dash "-" on the top row and not the minus "-" on a numeric keyboard.

That is good and bad for you. Now you will have sleepless nights worrying about your AE pixelated troops.

Glad you stuck it out and did the research effort on switches. So many new players have given up when they were on the cusp or solving the problems. I blame part of that on the "instant gratification" people have come to expect from tech devices that set themselves up: convenient but you learn little about how it operates.

I almost did seriously well at least till I bought a new vid card which I do not need.I am really happy I did stick it out...however hmm well its 12:42 am and decided to load up coral sea and get familiar with the controls been awhile since my uncommon valor days (great game) any way after I clicked on my first turn
and going through intelligence reports etc..I noticed that my surface task forces are not showing up on the map.Funny too as my subs are showing up I tried moving my subs (I'm Japanese) on the first turn but I guess the scenario parameters say no.So where am I going wrong I mean they are there I can see their destination hexes and all just no little red ship.Maybe my fiddling with my subs I somehow turned off my surface TF'S.I do not know,I am using chemkids rainy day art.

There is a button at the top of the screen for TF management (next to the All Ships button). There may be something there that needs to be changed to display the TFs you have.

I sometimes get issues in display if I have been playing the game for a long while without a restart - the constant selection of bases and units loads them up in RAM and at some point the RAM gets full and while it will swap out info, it often swaps out the graphic display too. For example, when selecting a hex with a base in it, the LCU icons might not display on the bottom area of the base screen, but the dot for LCUs will be on the map. When I click on the LCU dot, the individual unit icons show up in the base hex display again. Saving and restarting the game clears up the problem for a few turns.

@789
Perhaps check which of your naval TF's are under Computer Control and which are under Human Control, it's stated in the TF window. Only human controlled ones show up for you on the map (I think?).

You can select whether the computer controlled TFs show or not in the All TFs screen.
