So I gather its the musical background that is the trouble?

I never have any music (midi) running. It just distracts me when I'm trying to dodge an SU35's missile locked on me ....... :P

A minor issue, but I would love to know if there is a fix. On in-game menu, 3d models will rotate very fast, i.e. in mission editor or ACMI. Is there anyway to slow it down?

I think you just click on the image to stop it rotating.

I'll try to hit 2 questions with one post:

@Starkiller, MIDI functionality is recommended to be turned off in XP and later. We were able to fix the music file to make it not CTD, but TAW still runs better without it. Microsoft is the likely culprit for removing Midi support from later versions of Windows.

@Wombat, what were you doing when the CTD happened? It looks like you were loading out your plane, but what did you select or deselect at the time of the crash?

That's correct HF. Selected "edit weapons loadout". However it was happening other times including hitting "fly" when attempting to enter the cockpit. I've just checked again and got the same fault on just trying to loading TAW2.0. I'm using my Netbook with XP OS.

Thanks HF but no.

What I have done is revert to "Default Campaigns" and "Default Weather" which seems to have fixed it. Thanks for your input. :thumbsup:

Interesting. What were the custom campaigns that you had loaded? That could explain quite a bit.

"Wombat Campaigns". Not even sure what they are as I make the bundled choice through the Launcher. :blush:

I've been flying strike missions in the Avenging Scimitar Campaign.

I've been editing the missions and get an error message when attempting to move the horizontal slider to the right to view other threat conditions. Its happen 5 times in a row. I've been particularly careful in the final two attempts to make no editing changes prior to viewing threat conditions. Here is where I'm at just prior to moving the slider :

I get a CTD with this resultant error message and graphic window.

Note the slider has moved to the right in the CTD inactive game window. There is no other CTD with slider movement with any of other options. eg. terrain, text, Flight x Alt, etc.

Any idea what is happening? :huh: Thanks.

Wombat, how can you play the game in window mode?

:lol: ...... in truth I don't. ;) It just that if I get a Crash to Desktop I get the error message and the window. Once I cancel the error message the window disappears. I've now flown addition strike missions and had no problems with the threat slider. Think it may have been just a one off ......

Thought I'd better admit this publicly: I can now launch TAW2.0 from the Launcher with Win8.0. :thumbsup: Just forgot to tell Home Fries ............... :blush: :blush: :blush: Thanks HF. :icon_salute3:

And with that, we're much closer to a public beta release of 2.30.

And I can't think of anything else we need that's realistically possible. Re-programming keystrokes, MP campaigns, getting escorts/wild weasel packages to follow instructions (any instructions) would be nice, but they're not realistically possible.

Just play with the other EXE files and make sure that nothing broke in the process. Once I'm confident that the changes don't bork up the existing TAW configuration, I'll release it for public consumption.

Sorry? Other EXE files? Better have look ........
