I click my desktop short cut The DW Gamemenu for Legends comes up and I click on Play. The long loading phase occurs, the Giant Kaltors are fed and so on. The Matrix screen starts to play... Then whether I mouse click while the Matrix screen is running or when the movie starts to play instead of going to the Galactipedia I'll go to it but there is only a black screen where the Galactipedia should be. On mouse-over my mouse will change based on what should be there and I can even click in the upper left corner of this black area to get rid of the "Galactipedia" and have the menu come up. But the menu is also behind this layer of black and no matter what I semi-randomly click on the new window is also hidden.

At first I thought this only happened if I switched to a browser window while the game was loading, that somehow changing focus from the game was causing this. BUt this last time I patiently waited, and let the Matrix credit go by and it still happened.

I first noticed this in 1.7.0.3 and I just installed 1.7.0.6.

Anyone else ever have this?

The galactopedia requires Internet Explorer to run.

Windows Media Player is also required for the game to run.

got both.

I've had many successful play sessions, it is an intermittent issue.

It seems that only if I close the autorun screen out and then relaunch that will the game then have a chance of starting properly. Not 100% verified though.
