  • Hey All,

    Once again, I've installed the latest version of SOWGB on a new computer. As always, the opening table of contents has bars instead of words.

    Can't remember how to fix it. Anyone remember how?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Alright Jack, you're able to post here again. 

    Regarding your issue, this is a common problem with folks while installing a new SOW game. Also an easy fix: Once installed -- right click on the SOWGB.exe or SOWWL.exe file and go to 'Properties', proceed to 'Compatibility' and select 'Windows 7', save and close.

    This should fix you up...Welcome Back

  • What does your "Molon Labe" motto actually mean to you Jack?
    Yes, I did look it up, but I'd be interested what it meant to you personally?
