There is an annoying popup that happens in the main screen when you mouse ocver a hex. It is a semi-transparent info screen, but because it is semi transparent it is hard to read. You can adjust how long the game waits before it pops up, and how long it stays on the screen, but there is no way to turn the $%#@ thing off. When it pops up it covers such things as menu windows, etc, requiring you to stop what you are doing and start over, hoping the sucker doesn't have time to pop back up before you set your moves.
a. A way to turn it off and on?
b. If it MUST be on, a way to make it opaque so you can actually read it while it is on screen?
I really like the nwe TOAW (I was a long time devotee of the original) but this feature is sort of a pain in the butt. Am I the only one who has had this issue -- or is there an easy fix that I am missing?
To turn them off, in the options, on the second page, set tool tips show to 100000.
To change their opacity, in the fonts ini file you can change ToolTipAlpha. The higher it is the more opacity. Values can range from 0 (no opacity) to 255 (full opacity).
