Dear Longbow or Fellow Fans,

I find that the board "Meadows and Mountains" of the new #3 assortment locks up my PC when I try to select it. The lockup is of the profound type, requiring use of the PC's "reset" button as ctrl-alt-del does not work.

I installed the #3 assortment on another PC with the same results. One of these PCs is a 233 mHz Pentium II with 64 mb and the other a 500 mHz Pentium III with 128 mb. Both have modern 3D accelerator video cards (one Matrox, one ATI) with the latest drivers.

Anyone have a clue on how to fix this?

Thanks.

I would confirm that the same thing has been happening with me with that board set. I was able to get it working one time by starting the game in window mode, then maximizing the window, but i am unable to repeat (or remember) the proccess i used to get it working since then.

We've found the problem....

The background image file in Meadows and Mountains was causing the problem....

We've replaced it and everything works fine now.

You can access your order at www.digitalriver.com/cs and re-download the board-pack if the existing one is causing problems.

It should be live for download later today.

I'll post a message as soon as Digital River has the board-pack ready.

In the meantime, before starting the Meadows and Mountains set, toggle to a black background using the F1 key.

The repaired board-pack #3 is now live at Digital River.

If you access your order, you can re-download it and copy over the current file.
