With some scenarios, it would be helpful to orient the mapboard with the scenario layout by rotating it 90 degrees clockwise or counter clockwise. If it is possible to do this, could someone explain how?
Thanks,
Bruce

Alas not. I do not know the technical reasons for it, only that these are not trivial, because otherwise it would have been implemented. What you can do ist set things up "rotated" by 180° - but not during the game.

Turn your monitor on it's side? :)

more seriously, if you are playing with skype, then you can rotate the image on your monitor.

To do this, you can just hold down the Ctrl and Alt keys and any arrow key to flip the screen 90 degrees, 180 degrees, or 270 degrees. The display will go black for a second before it displays in its new rotation. To get back to a normal rotation, simple press Ctrl+Alt+Up arrow.
