So I booted up JA2 for the first time in a while the other day. I'd been having issues with my monitor not setting its self to the right resolution, but fixed it by unplugging it and putting it back in properly.
Anyway, when I loaded in to the game, I could see much more of the tactical map at once, as if it'd been zoomed out. Everything looks slimmer, as if it was reflected in one of those weird mirrors. Additionally, the strategic screen is vertically letterboxed.
That isn't the main issue though, I can live with that - what's bugging me most is that all the map props seem to be "misaligned" with where they "actually" are. For example, the graphic for a tree is one tile to the left of where the tree "actually" is, ie the thing that blocks merc movement and acts as cover. The same extends to buildings, but it seems entirely random as to which objects and buildings it effects, and at what particular point in time.
Whether these two are linked, I wouldn't know. Anyone ever encountered this?

That is an old bug that hasn't been fixed yet as far as I know. If I remember correctly it only happens in 1600x900 resolution in fullscreen mode. If that is what you are using, try a different solution and see if that works better for you. I'm playing in 1280x960 which works fine.

Thanks, Looks like I was running it in 1440x900 - Don't remember actually changing it, but that's my native resolution so I probably did

It happens here at 1280x1024 -- not so much as to be a constant annoyance, but it still happens, so I don't think it is restricted to one resolution.
