Strange issue with popup text?
« on: October 27, 2010, 02:27:08 PM »
Whenever I hover mouse over an object, the object name isn't there.   I see stats and everything else, but I cannot see WHAT it is I'm mousing over.

I can use the right unit select menu and items names show in grey there.

I have Steam version, upgraded to 4.00, but this has been an issue since Unity upgrade I believe...

Any ideas?

Welcome to the forums :)

Could you post a screenshot so I know exactly what you mean?  I've been seeing the names of stuff just fine in my testing.

I'm usually pretty good with this stuff...but I cannot find where f12 saves the screenshots in Steam A.I. War

To see if I can better describe my problem.  When I hover the mouse over a unit, I get a floating tooltip of all stats about that unit.
However, does the first line of that tooltip contain the NAME of the unit?  Maybe I'm just seeing something I WANT to see there.

If I hover mouse over the units in the List on the right side screen I can see the name on 1st line of tooltips.

When I look a the first line I see something like "MLRS - Keith", telling me the name of the unit's type, and my name.  Are you perhaps using a grayish color?

The screenshots would be saved in a directory right next to the "Save" directory where your savegames go.

A complete uninstall, delete directory, and reinstall fixed the problem.  I have not done that for quite a long time...probably something left over from a previous beta.

Game on!

That's one of those where I have no idea how a reinstall could possibly have made a difference unless it was a different version, but I won't complain that it's working now :)
