The main problem (I believe) usually with these types of issues is that the layout designer made it for one screen resolution and the user has a different screen resolution.  The layout automatically stretches to fit your screen size (when in full-screen mode).  The designer likely had to do a lot of tweaking to cell widths and heights and such to get the text to land in the appropriate location on the background image.

You might try setting your screen resolution to the same resolution as the background image and see if that helps.  To get it to work properly on a different resolution, you'll have to tweak the layout.

Version 2.6 (in alpha testing currently) has an option to turn off the stretching.  It won't help if the user of the layout has a different screen resolution, but it might make it easier to layout the components and make it more obvious what the issue is.

Here's what the layout looks like for me when I set my screen size to 1280x800 (the size of the background image):

Sorry, brain fart.  You're right, not sure what's up with the Game Over screen.

As a quick fix, here's what I did (and this will probably depend on what your prizes are, because they affect how the other elements lay out):

Edit the Blinds cell, select the After Tournament property group.  On each tab (Odd Rounds, Even Rounds, Breaks), set the width attribute to 650 and the height to 0.  Set the HTML to:

<nobr>GAME OVER&nbsp;&nbsp;</nobr><div style="height: 135px"></div>

Additionally, you might want to limit the prize display to 6 prizes.  Edit the HTML of the V Prizes cell to be:

Prizes:<br><prizes orient="vertical" max="6">

Edit: By the way, this was using the original layout template, not the one you attached in your last post.
