I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but the map's not working for me. I'm not using any kind of loader, I just manually copied the files to the ART folder. When I start the game though, there's no map. The base icons show up, but over the "Prepare for Battle" screen. Fortunately, I backed up the old map, so I was able to restore it and that works fine.
Almost the same here - black "map" around the "loading" screen (saved game) in the middle with base icons, TFs etc. visible.
This is on my Win8 system. On Win7 at *ahem* work - no problem. Same map files unzipped on USB stick and copied into respective ART folders
EDIT: Only happens with new, darker version. Earlier pale version works fine even on Win8. Have tried different modes (non-windowd/windowed, with/without deep color, windowed different px/py values) - no joy.
Btw, darker map looks better. Thin ocean hexes and shallow/deep difference are ok, WIF style thus no longer that high on my wish list.
Outstanding work, chemkid! Feels almost like a new game. But also confuses the hell out of me - I have to fight the impuls to use the mouse wheel to zoom in and out Google Earth style!
