  1. Let me expand upon that... I compared the SC.ini file for SC WW1 with the SC.ini file for SC WW1 Breakthrough and found that original_screen_width, original_screen_height, window_width, and window_height were all set to 0. So I set them to match those in SC WW1 (1280, 1024, 1024, 768 respectively). No difference.
  2. I installed SC WW1 with the latest patches (1.07) and was able to get it running. I then installed Breakthrough and its latest patch (1.05) and attempted to get it running...but nothing happens after I launch the application. I have tried: Running as administrator Running Troubleshoot compatibility Disabling my antivirus (Avast) All to no avail. Help! Dave
  3. Thanks Templer! I was able to use that to resolve the issue, though I also needed to change the bit_depth variable in sc.ini from 0 to 32. Sorry I didn't reply for two years Hubert - I think the email notification must never have come to me! Looking forward to playing some SCWW1 again!
  4. Thanks so much for posting this, it led me down the right path. My values for window_width and window_height were set to 0 same as yours...but I was still getting an error. I noticed that #bit_depth was set to 0 so I changed that to 32 and now it works!
  5. Hubert - Thanks for the assistance. Unfortunately, it gives me the error message before the game ever launches - so I can't make any changes to the settings.
  6. I get the same error message on a Windows 8.1 machine. It ran fine on Windows 8. I tried doing the installer with run as administration, but that doesn't seem to fix it. Dave
  7. So, I'm playing the game in windowed mode - which is great - except for the fact that when I come back to the game sometimes all the events have cleared from the screen, so I don't see the message that this army was destroyed, etc. until I actually look for the army and it doesn't exist. Would it be possible to turn on an AAR report for the end of each turn which one could review during the turn? This would allow one to look back over what had happened. Might even be neat to have this AAR report always available for all turns - so one can look back at the course of combat over time. Dave.
  8. Did you guys ever find a resolution for this issue? This is the same issue I'm having with Weapons and Warfare when using it in windowed mode. Dave.
  9. Just a quick update, FYI. 1. I found that if I minimize the game and don't return to it until the next turn begins (which I can tell via the little icon in my taskbar flashing green) then usually it works. Not always, but usually. 2. If I save the game, exit to the main menu, and attempt to load the game again I get a dialog box as it attempts to load the saved game stating: "FAILED(on_menu_command): Segmentation violation" When I click okay to the error message SC2 closes out automatically. 3. I can then reload SC2 and load the game without any issues. I know its not a high priority - but just in case any of this explains why this is occurring and provides a potential fix...It'd be great for me. Dave.
  10. :-? I'll try the full-screen mode at some point. I'm a huge multi-tasker, so playing full screen isn't really a viable option...but I can survive by reading a book while it is running the computer turn...and hopefully a solution will become apparent at some juncture - maybe it is my video card/driver and there will be an update. Dave
  11. Thanks for the quick response. I can live with this issue...its just mildly annoying...but I greatly prefer playing windowed over full-screen, I'm a major multi-tasker. I am running the latest version of Weapons and Warfare (1.06) and the latest video driver (NVidia GForce 8600M GT), but thanks anyways! Dave
