Ok, that helped with figuring out how to use the game but I’m still having the problem of infoview and toolbar not appearing unless I reinstall. I followed the instructions of deleting the .ini file and keeping the windows to the middle of the program but neither work. While this is a pain for my PC, for some reason I don’t have this problem when I run the program on my laptop.
I prefer a 2 monitor setup anyway so you dont have to keep collapsing the map so you may want to post from the desktop and leave the map on the laptop. The info and toolbars usually vanish when they are placed at map edges so leave them in the south atlantic and indian oceans. Just remember to look under them occasionally to make sure a new fleet or IC hasnt spawned
