Well I figured out the Cartographer Minimap icon issue. Didn't realize that you could control the button under "Hotspots" so I got that fixed, but my map still changes back to a circle! I have bongos but that no longer controls the minimap. I've tried it using Bongos Cornucopia but that did it as well. So I'm still stumped! Like I said before my only guess would be gfxtoggle, when I change from Low to High in Major Cities or something...but I really don't know.
Again thank you for any help!
