We have 1000's of players running BOBII. We are running and supporting version 2.11 (you did not say what you are trying to run). Here is where the BOBII Players and Developers hang out if you are interested:http://a2asimulations.com/forum/index.php
You can read all the Sticky threads on the BOBII General Forum, Technical Forum, and the Question and Answer Forum. Full Function Flight Sims like BOBII take time to set up, configure, select options and functions, and learn the game. It is more of a hobby than a game. Most good players are interested in history, aircraft fight, air combat, and WWII strategy.
Here is a download of the version 2.11:http://a2asimulations.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=21865
First, in Options->Adv->Game , Be sure skip in-game videos is checked.
Did you update your Direct X 9c to the latest version (remember Directx 10, 11.and 9c are all different and stand alone for different games and BOBII uses 9c). See this link for the Microsoft Web Installer (only updates what is out of date):http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/detai...;displaylang=en
If you have a wide screen monitor please re-check that you did the following:
First, set you "windows" resolution (in windows) to your monitors native resolution.
Second, because you have a Wide Screen Monitor try in game setting of resolution:
Set in options->GFX use Windows Desktop Resolution (Recommended)=OFF
Then manually select the resolution (in game) as close as possible to your monitors native resolution from the pull down list of resolution options.
Did you make the windows 7 fix (must be re-done when you re-install, NOTE: I assume you are running Win 7)?
Note6: Windows Vista and Window 7 users. All Vista and Windows 7 users will need to apply the 'Vista/Windows 7 fix' to your desktop shortcut as a fresh 2.11 install will overwrite the previous shortcut.
Right click on shortcut and go to properties. Go to the compatibility tab. Check "disable desktop composition" and check the privilege level, run this program as an administrator.
