Not sure if this is in the right place so point me in the right direction if not please.
After a while of not controlling I have tried to install Euroscope, however when loading up I am greeted with a weird issue that no matter what I try will not seem to go away. I have attached a screenshot below. When I try and click the "OPEN SCT" or other menus like settings a green thin line appears all down the page, and there is a grey box that is flickering in and out at the bottom of the client. This is regardless of what Sector file I am using.
- I can open the connection menu fine
- I have tried uninstalling totally and deleting any files leftover, I have ensured I am running as administrator, I have tried changing display settings on both of my monitors, I have tried using Euroscope in fullscreen and not,.
- I am running Windows 8.

I spent this morning working on an alternative SMR for Exeter (EGTE) - my internet was out so it was a good way to kill time
Feedback is most welcome.

The Sector File <- Download Link
You can also use the auto-download feature of EuroScope to obtain the latest version.
Found a bug while using the new sector file? That’s anything from an auto-handoff that doesn’t work, to a missing position, to a misbehaving agreement… Use the EuroScope department of the helpdesk!
Alternate ownerships for observing/mentoring
It's possible for mentors to get the correct sector ownerships without needing to select a primary frequency. Just go to Other settings...Sector ownership setup, click 'select all' and select 'Mentoring TWR/APP' from the list. For mentoring on LON_*_CTR (or SCO_CTR) you will need to select the relevant 'Observing LON_*_CTR' option instead to specify which sector(s) you are interested in.
The LON_*_CTR can also be used for observing purposes rather than mentoring, but this requires a quick edit of the UK.ese file to tell Euroscope what your log-in callsign for observing will be. (E.g. HS_OBS.) Open UK.ese in Notepad or another text editor and the line to edit is at the top and clearly indicated. There's also an 'Observing London FIR' option that will give you ownership of every sector in the FIR, regardless of who else is online.
Adjacent airports shown when using the General Setting 'Set active APT by owned sectors'
There is now an option to choose which departure airports to show, by means of a special runway 00 at '000A Show adjacent departure airports' in the Runway Selector dialogue. This mainly affects London and Scottish Control sectors.
Option 1, with a selected runway 00 on the right hand side (under DEP or ARR, or both, doesn't matter): the departure list will show departures from all airports within the sector, or immediately adjacent to it.
Option 2, with no runway 00 selected: the departure list will show departures only from airports for which you have top-down responsibility for TWR services. That is, only when nobody else is covering it. This is the mode of operation found in previous versions of the sector file.
