I am trying to debug an operating problem with AE not running properly on a new Alienware Computer. For some reason the program is unable to control the screen. When I load the game, which takes forever, the screens requiring text appear as background only. I have to scroll over them to get the text. The map, when it comes up is worse. The game is unplayable at present and I still have to use the task manager to exit the game. Any ideas out there?

Once again ... better to open a support thread in the AE forum or PM MichealM (the dev's won't probably see it here and not where you placed it in the witpstaff thread)
