Hi, 8enjí, 

My first thought is that there may be some setting for your internet connection (perhaps you're using a proxy) or firewall that isn't letting through the synth files (the .jpg tiles, etc.) as they're stored on a different domain name than the Silverlight viewer program or the pages that make up the site.
