Crashing at "Watchtower" missions, + feedback
As soon as I attempt a Watchtower mission in either Japanese or American campaign, the program "whitescreens" & crashes. Watchtower can be played in "Replay Mission", but result is not saved so I can't progress.

An earlier mission crashed in American campaign at detection of Submarine, but any attempt to progress past this waypoint crashed the game (sorry, can''t remember the name of the mission)

The menu system is overall frustrating, e.g. trying to re-assign joystick keys is poor, throttle wheel is not recognised on Sidewinder Force Feedback Pro, aeroplane dynamics need to be fixed up a lot - any of the Microsoft CFS games provided much better control (i.e. ACPC -no rolls or loops possible in Arcade mode, planes wallow & react unrealistically in Simulaton mode)

I hope these get ironed out, there is potential there for this to be very good... but it isn't there yet.

The earlier mission was Wake Island Air Patrol - it also crashes in Replay Mission at the same point (sub detected, as soon as it attempts to go beyond this point whether normally or when space bar is used to skip the dialogue, it crashes).

I am also being prevented from being able to progress in the American campaign. When I select to play the Watchtower Patrol mission in the Eastern Salomons chapter, the game white screens and crashes.

Like many others, I too have had the same crash in the same locations of the game. I sent my info to Support as well. Hopefully it can be resolved, because it's rather fun and I like shooting down planes and blowing things up.

I,m italian so excuse my for my bad English. About problem "crashing at watchtower" i had solve it in the following way:
First of all i have a graphic card "NVIDIA GEFORCE GT 6302"
Second, I had run the game from the web page of STEAM and befor playing i had select the opino button "set graphic / game parameter" and I set all graphic parameter to "HIGHT" and resolution at "1680 x 1050". In that way on my pc is possible to play to the "watchtower mission" without having the crash down.

I hpoe you can play the game too in that way on your PC.
Good lucky and bye

And you were able to play the game without the plane looking like a bit#% in bed with crabs?

Hi Fabrizio!
thanks a lot for reporting this solution :). It certainly helps to narrow our finding and hopefully soon we can release some fix and we will see if it resolves the crashes with Watchtower.
Please contact me via private message when we release the new game on Steam; I will send you the access code for Steam as a token of our gratitude for your report :)
Thanks

Steelhead, use the default control settings, turn the sensitivity down, and stay off the rudder. The aircraft fly with reasonable accuracy. With practice, you will gain the experience needed to fly proficiently.

What you are experiencing is PIO, Pilot Induced Occilation. You can see that the aircraft fly in a perfectly straight line when you take your hand off the joystick. Therefore, any occilation is caused by you, not the plane.

I´ve found a solution, you need turn on the best quality of the water in the settings, no matter the resolutiion you have,then you can do the watchover patrol and then turn off the best qualitty of the water again. Sorry for my english.
