I just read your question, steamversion of the game Steam is by default installed on my 2nd drive (more space and saves hassle of reinstalling), so are my savegames.
To humor you i uninstalled Steam, reinstalled on C (what it by default does under normal circumstances) also let the game make new save, only had Giants Islands 09 in the mod folder and still black screen.
It only works on 1.3 patch for me, which is still in beta.
I even went way to far by reinstalling entire windows and everything I had on my pc on c, still only beta patch 1.3 and the back screen si gone.
It is at this time impossible to let it run on 18.104.22.168
I am frustrated that it is not in the description, everyone I know from friends (all over the world) tried the map and they all confirm only on beta patch 1.3 and the map works. They also tried with steam on default location with savegames etc and on their own disk choice.
Some also have the version bought through Giants and also then only on beta patch 1.3 it will run without issues and without errors.
All combo possible we tried, we can not run it on 22.214.171.124
As mentioned by others as well in the meantime.
Modmaker using beta patch 1.3 perfect, only a shame it won't run on 126.96.36.199 at this time, will wait for patch to become official in time.
As someone else also mentioned if it gets approved maybe a suggestion to add required version (even if it is still in beta at that time) to prevent misunderstandings?
To others that replied thanks for your input and support.
