Can't see map or display

This thread is open.

On my home computer, everything looks good (although I've not see what it looks like when it's my turn, yet.

However on two different laptops, the locations on the map show, but then the canals and railroads "overwrite" the map, so i cannot see most of the locations any longer.

Also, the industries do not show up untless I click, then a popup box shows them.

well, when I installed Firefox, I can see it. So it seems to be an IE issue.

OK, it works in IE on this computer, but I'll have to look into it. Have you checked whether your machine has the latest version of IE? I guess there might be something I could do to make it work on all versions of IE, but like I say I'll have to give it a look.

I wouldn't kill yourself trying to make it work in all flavors of IE. IE6 and lower are the bane of a web programmers existence. You should probably just put a disclaimer on the site like Spiel By Web does that says "Works Best in Firefox".

Yes, it seems like the problem is that older versions of Internet Explorer do not understand PNG image transparency. For now I would have to suggest upgrading to the latest version of IE.

The download page for IE 7 is here (as far as I know it is not complicated to install and should copy over your old settings automatically).

Alternatively you can download Mozilla Firefox from here. Firefox is the browser I prefer to use. I haven't had any poblems using it yet, so I would recommend it.
