Descriptive Problem Summary:I decided to host a game, but when I join the game, the screen ends up in text mode format even though it isn't in text mode.

Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
1. Download Dragon Universe.http://www.byond.com/games/Lizard_Sphere_X/1?tab=index
2. Host game
3. Join game


Code Snippet (if applicable) to Reproduce Problem:


Expected Results: For the game screen to be the icons, not the text.

Actual Results: What seems like perma text mode.

Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often? Every time.
In other games? Nope.
In other user accounts? Nope.
On other computers? Only have one comp.

When does the problem NOT occur? Never.

Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked? Always happens. (Visit http://www.byond.com/download/build to download old versions for testing.)

Workarounds:

If accessible, go to the Icons tab on the menu bar and make sure you don't have 'text' selected. Otherwise this may be a developer problem.
This also happens if you try to host from the zip file; without extracting both the DMB and the RSC.
Can you confirm if you're hosting from a regular folder and not just running the .dmb straight out of the zip file?

I'd download this and check it now but it's too late in the evening for me to wrestle with Mediafire.
Closing this as a non-bug for lack of confirmation. It seems likely it was just being hosted from the zip. I did check out the zip file and it contains both the .dmb and .rsc files, but knowing the author's predilections I'm unwilling to actually run one of his .dmb files.
