I might have been a little hasty in thinking that ALL is resolved; just tried to log on from the main TN screen. Think I need to switch this Technical Issue back to New
Unfortunately it still took 4 x “Page Unresponsive” warnings before I got past this screen
When I did get in there was no grid so with my first attempt to use the “Jump to Priority Area” button I couldn’t tell if it actually worked as the image on screen didn’t change; if it merely moved to an adjacent tile I wouldn’t know.
My second attempt with “Jump to” button did take me to a different tile/map but still no grid.
Now this might lead me to believe that I’ve actually completed all the maps; according to my counter I do have 39.2k “Areas Searched”.
Oddly enough, when I log out, the grid is back! If I log in again, it disappears again! But when I go in through the back door in the forum I’m lead to new unexplored maps or with maybe only a few tiles already explored So I now know for sure I’ve not completed the lot
So the only way round this particular issue is to not start up TN at all! Instead I log straight on to the Forum instead and then click on a link in a relative post in there. From there I can use the “Jump to” button to take me to a new unexplored area and the map does have a grid!
Of course the pit fall to using this back door is I don’t know if there are any new campaigns Unless of course I click on the “Go to main screen” button. But then I’ve got to log out, close that tab and head back round to the back door again. Otherwise I’ll have a whole map without a grid…again!
This all must be confusing/discouraging for newbies particularly those who don’t use the forum and might happen upon the “way round” in this post and other such tips’n’tricks. Would they even be bothered? How long would they persevere searching the map, before they start wondering if they’ve already looked at this tile before, specially if the “Jump to” button takes them to an adjacent tile
Right, I’ve off to test out the start up using the back door and the scrolling speed to see if anything’s gone astray again overnight
