Graphics issues with map?

Post by zirkojo »

Help! I'm new to this game, and to this site.
I seem to be having a graphics related issue. I can see the objects on the map fine (units, trees, villages, etc), but the map itself is black, and I can't see the roads or terrain, except trees.

Is this a known issue? I am using Windows 10.

welcome to the forum, have you tried any of these suggestions?


as windows 10 by default disables a few and needs others for some games to be backward compatibly

and also here's my install and setup guide for the game


but yes it's a known issue with affect certain cards it seems in windows 10 ... for.Russia

but also it does state that it's no higher than windows 7, as there has been more than a few who couldn't get the game to work with windows 8 either, mind 10

First i want to say that it does not state in the productinfo that OB would work with any OS higher than Win 7 ( OB Info ).
Also this problem is known and documented for a while now. We know what needs to be fixed but we currently do not have the manpower to solve it.
