yes thanks JJJ - i also tried the new one this morning and was wondering where i would see that option ... interesting that first this am i tried mission editor without the realistic airfield mod ... and the map function worked fine

i then loaded in the realsitic air field mod into jsgme - noticed quite a bit of stuttering in my views and flight when i went on another campaign flight w me, and alas the map funciton didn't work, hitting m kicked me to a completed mission screen - so still thinking that 'overload' has something to do with the realistic airfields mod and how it is taxing my setup ... will continue to play around with it - as obviously i hope to get it all working together

i suppose i could use a print map and just not hit the m key as a fall back option

anyone else seeing this type of issue - my machine is reasonably new and capable?

regards, Ron
