Re: Is it possible to run 4.0 on Windows 10?

Should it be possible to force the game always to start in Windowed mode? I can't see to get it to remember any setting for this, no matter what I try. I could have sworn that when I played the game previously on PC it was possible to always get the game to start in windowed mode (which would solve...

Re: Large counters in 4.0 harder to read

This is done on purpose because the older large Counters covered the entire terrain below. Now you can actually see enough of the terrain below so you can actually know what you're attacking. Before you had to turn units off to see the river, terrain type and resource. I actually prefered the older...

Re: Is it possible to run 4.0 on Windows 10?

Basically the game crashes if I try to run it in full screen on my external monitor, I can run it if I disconnect my external screen, so that it opens on my notebook's own display, then can switch to Windowed mode, then reconnect my external monitor, and it all works fine, but if I exit the game it ...

Re: Can't get 4.0 to start on Windows 10

Okay. well I've sort of figured out what's going on - basically the game doesn't like running in full-screen mode when my external monitor is plugged-in to my laptop computer - If I unplug the screen I can start CEAW full-screen on my laptop screen, then switch to windowed moded, then plug the monit...

Re: Can't get 4.0 to start on Windows 10

I don't know why it seems to be ignoring the windowed mode setting - in both settings,txt and GS400_settings.txt I have this set: WINDOWED_MODE 1 I think if I could get it to run in windowed mode, I might have more luck. There is no settings file in my C:\Users\[user]\Documents\CEAW Grand Strategy 4...

Re: Can't get 4.0 to start on Windows 10

Sadly I still can't get the game to run on my home PC, this is a high-end gaming laptop connected to a 1920x1080p 24" external monitor. It gets further than before, I get the launcher menus to select language (English) and Low/High Quality CPU (I selected High Quality), but then it just goes to a fu...

Okay, got 4.0 working on my work Windows 10 PC by installing 1.12 vanilla and then installing GS 4.0 direct over the top. Will try on my home PC this evening.

Re: Growing the CEAW player base?

Hi - I may be one of the old players that you're hoping will get back in to the game now that GS 4.0 is released, I used to play CEAW GS quite a bit ages ago (PBEM), and could play well enough by the end not to totally embarrass myself, though didn't play enough to be an expert like many of you guys...

In windowed mode, how to set position of the window?

Hi - I've finally managed to get GS 4.0 installed, I prefer to run in Windowed mode, but can't see how to reposition the window, it's stick at the top left of my screeen. I now it's not drag and move, but is there a way to set the window position in the preferences, so that it's always in the middle...

Re: Can't get 4.0 to start on Windows 10

Okay, I've now got it working on my work Windows 10 PC (we're allowed to play games at lunchtime) - installed 1.12 (without running it) then GS 4.0 over the top. As I didn't run 1.12 before installing GS 4.0, I assume there are no .dat files that would have needed deleting? Is there anyway to check ...

Okay, is it actually better then *not* to run 1.12 before installing GS 4.0?

I've now received a download link from Slitherine SUpport for the full 1.12 version - I'll try installing GS 4.0 over that and see if that works.

Re: Can't get 4.0 to start on Windows 10

I have W10. I'll explain what I've done. I completely delete all CEAW from my computer. I install the original version of CEAW v1.12 (ask for original code / product on disk or download) I downloaded the v4.0 version, I unzip it and put it inside the original game (ask me to confirm file replacemen...

Is it possible to run 4.0 on Windows 10?

Hi - is it possible to run 4.0 on Windows 10? At the moment I can't even get 3.1 to run from a fresh install, let alone 4.0 (I did try, but then uninstalled completely and then just tried to run 3.1, but nothing happens after selecting "Okay" in the Launcher, it just closes). I've tried running as a...

Nope, still can't even run the base 3.1 game, not even if I try any of the compatibility modes :-(

Has anyone got this working on Windows 10 or is it back to SC3 for me?
