  • Below is what I just posted to the Matrix Games Help Desk. If anyone here can help I would greatly appreciate it:

    When I go to the main page of the game no words can be read. All text has been blocked out, as if it has all been redacrted. By guessing at what I was clicking I managed to get to the battlefield. All trees have a large black box around them....regiments are blacked out, etc. The game cannot be played.

    This happened once before a few years ago, but I can't remember how it was repaired.

    Thanks for any help you can give.

  • cliometrician - Hey, how is everything going!

    This has been reported several times over the years.

    Try the - Right Click on the SOWGB Icon - Properties - Compatibility - Windows 7

    I think that that will solve the problem.

    The only true logic is that, there is no true logic!

  • Hi Davinci,

    I just heard from the Matrix Help Desk. They gave the same advice you did, except they had me right click on the autorun.exe icon. I'll bet either one works.

    Bottom line: problem solved!

    Thanks
