0000612: Game forgets tiles
The game seems to lose track of tiles, slowly replacing them with black ones.

I am using my own .bmp image with 16x16 tiles.

It works fine when I first open the game, but if I open a game (or the arena) and then close it and open it again, one of the tiles (L-shaped wall) is missing. All those tiles appear as black tiles. Upon repetitively opening and closing the arena, more and more tiles vanish until even the intro screen is unreadable.
Open arena, esc-abort. Open arena, esc-abort...
No tags attached.

my first instinct was to say that this might be related to 0000357

but as I sit here re-reading what you've said, I think that may not be the case. so you're saying you're going in and out of the arena repeatedly, without exiting the game. (without crashing?)

I'm not able to reproduce this. as suggested I went into and out of the arena many times, a dozen or so, I see no evidence of anything unusual.

Is this restricted to the arena? or does it also apply to forts as well? When you enter the arena are you using the default raw or a different one? Are you placing creatures having battles or something and then exiting back out to "clean up" your arena space between battles or something?

Are you playing with partial print?

Does this problem still occur in 31.04?
