I can't start my aircraft from the aircraft carrier anymore. During the misson "Marshalls Gilberts Raid" I bought a new Wildcat and put it on my carrier, then I tried to start the plane and every time I try that, I get a new Wildcat on my carrier (max.3), but none of them can actually really start, they are trapped in a way. If I reload the game, the carrier is empty again and my Wildcat is still a reserve unit, I can't bring it to the battle.

Now that I have updated to 2.9.8 a few issues have arisen. I received a black screen upon clicking Play Game. I resolved that issue by following a guide to eliminate the file Documents\My Games. The Black Screen went away and we moved to the next screen. Clicked on Load Games and there are no saved games. I was at the beginning of Barberosa. I had advanced from Poland to the USSR. All gone. What happened and can I correct.
A further question why is it when ever an update is presented major problems develop with the game. I would hope these issues would be identified before release.

My guess is that you probably have deleted the Documents\My Games folder instead of just deleting the Settings folder.
If you have deleted My games folder than you have also deleted the saved games.

I've just tested and it's working as usual.
Check if any of your Internet security programs (like an anti-virus, firewall, anti-malware, etc.) isn't interfering with the game update feature.

Thanks VP - but the convoluted process to install the last updates did not suffer from the same errors and problems although the Laptop setup was exactly the same.

Given that the entire process takes some c25 minutes, I am loath to try again unless a robust upgrade process is provided. To be fair Slitherine/Matrix do have form regarding problematic updates. See all related posts from other Gamers.

All I get for the 3 Mac sites are a 404 error and site not found. Why does every update need to be a trip to the dentist? It's almost 2017, make this simple please.

We have launched a new patch today 2.9.9 so the 2.9.8 links were deactivated.
Anyway I've replaced them now.

I installed 2.9.9 update to run Blitzkrieg but the program does not run at all now. It worked find under 2.4.8 with Rising Sun. Why the problems?
any ideas? Must be a common problem.
Not only this but when I uninstalled and reinstalled 2.4.8 it now fails to run. Don't release an update if it has such serious flaws.

You need to provide more details... do you receive any error message? Is the screen black?
