    haben sie splash.exe geloescht?
  2. I recently discovered two very unique marine sims in the deep space of wargaming internet. "Distant Guns 1.5 Enhanced" covering the Russian-Japanese War and "Jutland Pro" covering WW1. These games (and their weird distribution method) have their issues for sure but I must say I am still impressed. The fidelity and love put into it reminds me somewhat of what I´ve also enjoy when playing Combat Mission. Perhaps there are even some players around this place. Would be awesome to make some multiplayer fleet battles. I´ve made some videos on my youtube channel for you to enjoy: All videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeK7fSyoEE8aorVLlVfNcAQ/videos Will also probably do some CMSF2 vids in the future.

    Yes I run it in Windows 10 newest update only with admin mode. On thing that always created issues for me is the splash.exe in the stormpowered install folder and in Jutland/Distant Guns install folder. This is supposed to be a small intro but sometimes stopps Stormpowered and also the games from working. Just backup/delete it from all folders and the update or game start just runs fine, it is possible that after the small automatic update another splash.exe is created, also remove it from all folders, you don´t need it to run the game. Try if this works for you. If this is the same issue for you, I will inform the Stormpowered guys that they should remove it or at least add a instruction disclaimer because not every consumer can figure such stuff out. I´ve noticed it in the task manager and after killing it, everything booted up. I was 5 secs away from giving up and deleting everything and never take a look again at these gem games.

    That is true, I am actually not that of a navy buff but caught myself now lining up dozens of BBs and BCs in the quick editor to see them cruising (and blowing each other into pieces), very strange enjoyment haha. Nevertheless best luck with recovering your account! Let me know if you want to try the MP one day...

    When you remember which email you used for purchase you should be able to recover your account. The UI definitely has issues and requires some work, figuring, and hotkey memorization until you´re able to issue orders with confidence and convenience. The battle UI thankfully works quite well but the dynamic campaign UI is really "expert level" in figuring stuff out and required alot of trial and error. Yeah I love the hundred detailed ship models they´ve put in. There are some static crew to spot and I could imagine that during combat operations bigger ships may have less crew outside because it could become a real hazard to their life but nevertheless "real" crew with animations like seen in SH5 would be super awesome and raise this to "rated M for ship porn" level. As far as I understand this is/was a very small studio with limited options so I am pretty happy that they atleast got a solid graphics engine which still looks good to me despite its age.

    bailing out of an AT gun

    If my crew leaves the AT gun (for example to return small arms fire in full force) is there a way to reattach the crew to the gun?

    They meant september of next year!

    Wonders me why I am not that affected by all of this and still are very excited for CMSF2 even when it takes longer. I am pretty sure it will be awesome. Being plagued with a cursed passion for my beloved naval sims Distant Guns Pro and Jutland Pro I probably have gone trough customer hell full with zero communication, login fails, and DRM issues that I probably stopped caring or having emotions at all 😅
