Confirm. On my new monitor connected by the display port, the time the game was first started decreased from 1 min 15 sec to an equal minute. Subsequent launches are 15 s vs 21s. Thanks to Storebror.

Apparently there's a way to work around this issue, and this "ScreenMode Mod" is the proof of concept for this workaround.
That's right. Thanks for your effort.

Mike,

THANK YOU for the excellent ScreenMode mod.  Have been baffled why my 8700k with 1080ti took forever to load IL2, while my 3770k with rx580 loaded almost instantly.  Your mod fixed it right up.

You mention a known glitch with NVidia and displayport which was the root of this issue.  I have a similar experience with Battle of Britain II where loading the graphics settings page takes forever on the 1080ti, while it is instant on the AMD 580.  Do you know of an OS or driver based fix for this issue that would apply beyond a modded IL2?

Thank you again for sharing the great fix.

Alan

Tried it out on a basic 4.12 and on a 4.10 DBW and it does indeed give a noticeable quicker start. Tnx for the mod.

Another interesting side effect is that with this mod, I can now move my mouse cursor from one monitor to another while still having the game active. Before that, my cursor was always 'stuck'  in the game and to use it on other programs I had to get out of Il-2 with <alt-tab>. Now I can move the cursor wherever I need it to be ... which comes in very handy when making maps for instance. Now I can move directly from map-maker to graphics editor to make changes ...

A very nice side effect, worth the mod in and of itself already ...

Holy scrimolians! My heavily modded 4.12.2 modact 5.3 game loads (from an M1 SSD) about 4-5X faster, in less than 8 seconds now, vs about a half minute previously. That'll be especially handy when I do a lot of classfile work, requiring multiple re-starts.

Thanks for the magic, Mike.
