I was waiting in anticipation of your new map. When I saw you had posted it, I immediately downloaded it and tried to play it.
Loading the map in CoCoNet takes a lot of time (more than the loading of the Elora map, which is much bigger). And every following step to set-up the game (starting server, choosing factions, adding computer players) takes a lot of time, while it takes no time at all in other maps I have played, including Struggle for Elora.
All the while, the map view is just a rectangle in one colour, with the flags on it. No countries and no outlines. That's the same map as I get when I can finally start the game: all the play-field is one colour (red, green, blue, etc., the colour of the last faction chosen bij de game for a computer player).
Enabling or disabling Direct 3D doesn't make any difference and I don't get any errors from CoCoNet.
I can start the game and I can make moves, but it's on a blank map.
I'm afraid you posted the wrong version of your map, or made a fatal last-minute adjustment. PLEASE!!! Correct it. I want to play!!!
