Re: BOB2 WINDOWS 10 PATCH (RELEASED)

Well initial install into a new crossover Windows 7 bottle hasn't yielded any real improvement so far. I think it's a matter of going back to the old tweaks I have long been unconcerned with in BoB and crossover tweaks. Also I stated earlier about Linux may be better, I think that may be the reason ...

Re: BOB2 WINDOWS 10 PATCH (RELEASED)

PV Excellent information on what BOB was optimized for, I always assumed it was XP. I setup crossover using an XP bottle bit it absolutely has Win7 bottles and that may be the major issue for the performance hit. Also please note that I understand that Linux platforms should see even better performa...

Re: BOB2 WINDOWS 10 PATCH (RELEASED)

Well I gave up on Windows 10 running 2.13 BUT I have tried a very unorthodox approach in getting my BOBII 2.13 fix, and that is using Mac OSX to run it. Using Codeweaver's Crossover (Wine) to run Windows apps natively I have achieved stability in BOB 2.13 in terms of no crashing upon exit in instant...

Re: BOB2 WINDOWS 10 PATCH (RELEASED)

Sorry to say after more testing my initial excitement was premature. I'm getting the instant launch back to desktop from within the campaign as my initial tests were just single missions. Outside of your welcomed tweaks to 2.01 it looks like even with Win7 it will be iffy as support will end 1/2020 ...

Re: BOB2 WINDOWS 10 PATCH (RELEASED)

Just want to indicate that so far I have been having success with the initial v2 and BDG patch 2.04. I have tried patch 2.05 with multiskin and it failed with the infamous alt-x at end of mission. Below are the fixes that was in 2.04: What is in 2.04? 1. New Features 2. Stability 3. Performance Impr...

Re: BOBII 2.13 latest build Windows 10

Well after some more trial and error I set myself on the trail for a 3rd party utility to force windowed mode (preferably borderless) to run with BoB. Well I think I may have found the answer in Windower (http://www.windower.net/) simply running with default profile and select "insert" key brought u...

BOBII 2.13 latest build Windows 10

I have been following threads in here and in simhq for some time following advice for tweaking Win10 to allow some semblance of stability in BoB but so far no luck. I recently made a modification to bdg.txt to force Windowed mode ON. Now when I play BoBII I can play a campaign/instant with no CTDs a...
