      4. Realize that any small flag is now black

      Additional Notes:


      Here is a screenshot :




      The flags below the major countries are supposed to be populated with other nations flags, not black ones.


      Here is another in the Trade Menu:

      Additional Notes:


      Steam Discussion page filled with same problems :








      Some users reported that running the game in OpenGL fixes this issue, leading me to belive its the DirectX part of the drivers screwing up.

      This fix works for me
