Dle-xp's mine view screen is completely white

And doesn't react to any interaction. This happened when I replaced my dle-xp with the newest version for more functions and less bugs. It opens fine, doesn't crash, but doesn't let me do anything because of the white screen. What should I do?

EDIT: Here's a screenshot: Image

Use your older version until there's an update. I doubt you'll be the only one experiencing this.

Eh, too bad. I was hoping the new editor would fix the issue with Vertigo levels failing to run... We're kinda out of options though, now aren't we? :P

DLE allows backward level conversions too. Just convert the mine back to normal D2 so you can keep working on it :D. You might want to remove the vertigo bots first though (replace them with a couple bot types you're not using in that particular mine and keep a list of what to change them to later). Otherwise I think DLE will convert them according to some internal list and it might make things a lot more difficult when you convert it back later.

This happened to me on some of the recent versions a few weeks back, so when I got a response in the bug tracker, Diedel suggested opening the file DLE.ini and changing "EnableQuickSelection=1" to "EnableQuickSelection=0." I can't figure out why exactly, but that's worked for me on the last few versions.
