Today the bar at the bottom of the screen that shows airplanes and battle button started behaving like a Winblows taskbar set to "hide" disappearing and taking all planes and battle button with it. A tiny sliver of orange would be left with a white ^ on top that you could hold to select a plane or hit the battle button.  The counter that showed the tier selection and how many planes you have would go away with the planes bar.  It would intermittently stop doing it and then return to doing it. A wthis in order here. 

:amazed:

Weird stuff, indeed.

 

My Game Center wants to go to WGCheck first, had to find a way around it to get to the Play button.

blindfold gets a day off,

leave her be damn it


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

CHeck your video settings. your monitor and window size are not syncronized properly
Going into full window mode usually fixes the problem.

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is on par with my WinRate. Hit or Miss.

Now my crew can only be accessed under the "Crew" tab and my plane bar is still intermittently minimizing.

It happens to me from time to time when I use my laptop and lauch the game in windowed or maximized window mode.

Check if your in-game screen resolution coincides with your default screen resolution. Try to set your screen resolution in settings manually or change modes from full-screen to windowed and back to full screen. It should automatically set screen resolution in the game or at least you'll be able to set it manually.

Thank you Blindfold. My monitor (a 45" TV) and my computer (A worthless POS) are indeed set at different resolutions. I have an integrated Intel GPU (4500) that I've tweeked to get a whopping 32-34 FPS so I guess I'll have to put up with it. Hope you had a good time away from us! :)

Bruh.  stop playing with a potato powered laptop.  I did the same set up as you have at first and had my frame rates drop into the single digits if more than a few planes got too close to me.
(luckily not an issue playing bombers and attakers) 
Even a middle of the road gaming pc with a 1060 graphics card is fully optimized for this game.  Additionally you can run the game with the good graphics maxed out. the eye candy REALLY helps with the gameplay experience.

My GR8 II-6GT024Z "disappeared" in my recent move. I've filled a police report and contacted my homeowner's insurance but that is not going to get me a new rig any time soon. With the expense of moving I can't just drop another 2 grand or my wife will end my life. I'm stuck for the short term. I had this POS left over from my time running the Dorado Boat Company.
