I've tried readjusting the tooltip options and started various new games and save games but the problem is constant.

I uninstalled my toaw4 install before I installed the steam one. Is there anything I can try to make it re-appear?

edit: I originally thought it was the steam version that was to blame but it turns out it is the update.

Is not related to the steam version, but to the update. No steam here.

Your right, when I reinstalled my non-steam version and updated it the tool-tips were still absent.
So its definitely a v4.1 bug.

I'm aware of it and sent a patch to production earlier today.

The mouse tool tips are back for me but this still remains a problem with the text on the bottom middle.
I put two shots together, ones of the menu and the other is in game, text over text when you hover over a button in the main menu and in game.

It looks like it's confused by the fonts for some reason.

Can you please delete the file called Opart 4 fonts from Documents/My Games/The Operational Art of War IV?

If that doesn't work, please launch a scenario, do some mouseovers, close it down and post the toawlog file from Documents/My Games/The Operational Art of War IV.

Thanks,
Ralph

Off topic, but I have to ask @budd - what mods do you run?

You nailed it Ralph, i forgot i had a custom fonts file. I changed some of the sizes/types, but it did work without issue before the patch. Thanks

I see you're using my mod. Be sure to download the latest version. I had to tweak the fonts in order to create the illusion of printed texts, but in the first version of the mod I had inadvertently changed the wrong parameter causing exactly this effect. Or you can just visit the mod thread. I have posted the way to correct it without a new download. Very easy to do.

EDIT: See you got it just before I could post this.

Not at home now. I believe it does as there's other county folders in the mod. I install using JSME so I can swap things around at will, mix and match things.
