Battle Viewer Failure
I'm not getting the battle viewer to show the battles. I have a save that shows this. The save is available here. Load the save. You should be at my survey ship which is close to a defended anomaly, the yellow one. Use the survey ship to attack the anomaly, then try to view the battle. It has never worked for me.
EDIT on Friday
I have more information. Here is what I see.
I have learned that there is supposed be text at the top and bottom of the screen, including controls for the battle viewer at the bottom of the screen. They never appear for me. They are there, but they are invisible. I can put my cursor on them to get the tool tip to show.
I can also click on them to get things to work.
In the options I have Autostart Battle Viewer turned off. When I changed it so that autostart was on, I got the same screen shown above, then the battle viewer started, all the text appeared, and the battle viewer worked correctly.
The problem occurs when the battle viewer is not set to autostart.
