1.5 meg is very large for a SM background map. Remember, SM is a web
server, so with every re-load, that map (along with the miniatures added on
to it) needs to be sent to each player. I recommend using a map under 100k
in size. Maps without fancy pattern 'fills' tend to compress significantly
bettter than those with fills.

On the download page for either the trial version of lite version, there's
a 'generate reg code' button next to the download link.
