From: SW Missouri, but live in Charleston SC
I used patch 1.75. I also reinstalled DirectX and have the latest video drivers. I chose to fight a tactical battle. I had to alt tab just to get to the tactical battle map. When I got there the main tactical map is all black, so I tried the below and let it run for an hour. The map never changed.
This is all on Windows Vista 32bit version.
Problem: After switching to another application (ALT-TAB, pop-up, screensaver) and returning to the game the screen turns and remains black.
Solution: If there is any window open in the game (Recruitment, Army details, etc), close the window, switch to another application by using ALT-TAB, then switch back to the game. If this does not help, save the game, exit to the menu then reload. It takes 10-30 seconds for the map to redraw, be patient!
I forgot to say that fast combat works fine.
