Blank Text boxes - bug?


Recommended Posts

I haven't read the documentation, and I did a bit of search here and don't see anything so...

When playing the demo, I notice some text boxes come up blank. The nationality flag is there, but I can't see any words. Is this intentional, or is this a bug, or perhaps an issue with NVidia video drivers again??

I tried to take screen shots, but they won't turn out with the text boxes in play.

It looks like the ones announcing political events are the ones not turning out correctly - ie when Italy declares war on France, the grey box with the Italian flag shows up, but no text is in it.

When France surrenders, a box shows up with no text in it at the same time all their remaining hex tiles turn German grey, so I am reasonably sure these are the kinds of messages that are not displaying properly.

This is an interesting problem, I am wondering if anyone else has encountered this? if so please let me know. As a small workaround for the time being, make sure you have the 'Last Turn Summary' option checked as you will get most of these messages in there under 'Military Activity'

I'll have to concur with what MD is seeing. It seems to happen, on my system, when a country surrenders or a country joins the war effort, their flag is shown in the pop-up but no text appears. At first I thought it was FOW thing. This is on my laptop with a 32MB Geforce Go.

Yes, I have seen the air combat messages, and the money collection messages. That what makes it so very odd! It is indeed just the war declaration and surrender messages as far as I can tell.

Same problem with text boxes here. Running Windows XP, Nvidia Geforce3 Ti 200 w/current drivers. I tried Win95 and Win98 compatibility mode - no luck. I see MPP collection and air combat text - that seems to be all. Definitely blank boxes for DOWs, surrenders, etc.

I've been recieving your messages at the support email address, but it seems as though every time I send a response it either fails or gets returned. If you have another email address please forward that to support@furysoftware.com and I'll try to resend the patched EXE for this problem.
