I recently got a new computer and installed the game but for some reason I am unable to see the search arcs of my patrols on the screen. I'm not sure how to get it so they're showing. Is there a way to fix that?

A screencap of a squadron would help. I'm presuming you have set a squadron to show arcs and that you have in fact specified a range of degrees to search. Are there actual planes available with actual pilots and is the range of the squadron set to >0?

CTRL+Z to see the arcs, if you manually set them. If you left them at "Arcs Random" they will not show because they can change every turn.

You have the vanilla version of WiTP:AE (industry button is missing). Download the latest official update.

Never operate your aircraft at maximum range unless it is an emergency situation - the fatigue on airframes (PLANES hypertext) and Pilots will result in high Ops losses.

You have your aircraft operation on ASW, not Naval Search so I am unsure if search arcs are displayed. Also, ASW is a more intensive search so whatever range you set, the actual search distance will be half of that. That does not make your range of 18 OK - I think setting max range means the aircraft will fly to the last drops of fuel and get the same wear and tear on pilots and airframes.

Also, I don't see the area of the screen where you manually set the arcs (lower right, below the mission orders) so it might not have been in the game when first released.
