Help! Getting online game started...

I am running Mac OS and I am trying to connect to someone else in my first online game.

I have started the application and have the window with the game buttons at the top and the server controls on the right open.

In Windows I can normally see the map also at this stage (even in Mac I can click on buttons for the game, like die rolls, and card deck, etc). But in Mac I don’t see the map window for some reason.

Why? Will the map window appear when I have started a game with someone (i.e. they have synchronized with me)?

Hard to say without more details (i.e., which module are you attempting to use). I suppose it’s possible that you might not see a map until you load a game scenario to get started, assuming the module in question has scenarios and predefined setups for them.
