I'm open to suggestions.
The XML for this map is dead simple - there are no fancy bonuses, bombardments, starting neutrals, negatives, etc. It's a classic style map. I'll be happy to change Balsiefen's ampersands to the word "and" but I really don't think that's going to fix the BoB bug, as the "&" should be a valid XML reference. And for the record I used "&" unicodes in Berlin, and that map seems to be working fine with BoB. Weird.
Whatever the case, the problems don't seem to be screwing up gameplay, just BoB. I'll see if Yeti can take a look and check for anything that may not be BoB friendly.
