Whenever I load a scenario, it opens in Playtest mode.
Also, some parts of the interface in Playtest mode are black, like the resources info box.
Is there a way to fix these problems?

There are still a few buttons here and there in German,
One of them is the Triggers Cut and Paste buttons.
The UI also turns black in some places when playing the game and the number of villagers per resources is not showing.
Please see if you can fix these issues.

I know when I was trying to make a user interface compatible with all 3 versions of age 3 I had issue with...
Portrait does not show up except for asian dynasties though
as ES/Big Huge changed it from a gadget to a button for the main control panel
The other thing was the resource panel not displaying properly for all 3 versions of the game.
I will definitely try your editor to see if any difference in files helps this issue for me as it would be nice to have one interface good for all 3 games.
