that may be, but i am still having the problem. if it were confined to the old computer i'd say maybe it's a virus, or just old age, but this afternoon it occurred on my notebook too. they both have BOB. i am sending this on my new computer, which does not have BOB. tonight i played my games on the new computer, using the notebook to see which territory was whose. (the problem starts when i hit the begin button, so if i just look at the game, i can use the BOB apps to highlight the territories, etc.)
another thing - i've been bugged lately by another problem. the BOB apps work until i reduce the size of the map. then the colored lines indicating whose territory it is are out of sync with the map, and even returning to the original size does not get the lines back over the correct territories - they remain out of sync with the map. i can "fix" the problem by coming out and then returning to the game and usually the lines are properly in sync with the territory. i do not know if this was a precursor to the problem or a separate problem.
and, finally, as i have asked in my prior notes, what has happened to BOB ? i have been trying to get it on the new computer, but it is not available.
