Just installed version 8.2 after having previous versions for a number of years. It is been so long since i installed a new version of SPWAW i forgot what causes the black screen (i.e., no visible map) when trying to generate random battles. I remember having this problem a number of years ago, someone in the forum told me how to prevent it, but i cant remember the solution....must be getting old. Anyway, i would appreciate any advice.

Thanks

Run your cursor around a bit, sometimes it just takes a while to generate.

This usually happens to me after I've loaded several maps. Seems to hog the memory, and have to do a reboot.

Thanks for the advice, i do remember deleting the steel.prf file in the past, and that does work. The problem is, and i suppose there is no way around it, one often needs to delete this file, and everytime you do, all the "preference" settings need to be reset. I suppose it is better than not working at all. Anyway, thanks again for your advice. I will also try the moving the mouse around as another member suggested.
