Strategic War problems
Hi all

I am trying to play TFB and WOTSF but I am having some issues. I last played these games about 10 years ago without any issues. But when I run them now on my windows 10 PC I am not seeing any combat results pop up. The combat occurs and I see a retreat but I get no message. This is both for ground and air combat. It appears that the combat is occurring in a flash. Also when I commit units to ground combat I should see a predicted odds show up over the unit being attacked. That is also not showing up.

I have tried running in compatibility mode for both Win 7 and XP. No change in the problem.

I am running the latest digital download versions from the JTS site.

Problem solved. You need to be in the middle zoom. Zoomed in will not show the odds.

I think you also don't see the odds if you have FOW on (but don't quote me on that)

Yes, I had forgot how cool this series is. Looking forward to new offerings someday I hope.

I have a campaign scenario for WOTSF (North Africa 41-42) ready. Just needs a couple of new game functions and it's ready to go.

RE: Strategic War problems
Have been reinstalling my games after a problem and recently loaded TFB and WotSF myself.
Played these a good bit about 10 years ago too, several pbem games as well as solitaire.
If you're interested in a game I would be happy to oblige.

Actually I am looking. I tried the JT facebook page but haven't had any luck yet. So how about we kick of with Poland? I like all optional rules except the HQ's.
