Title: 0.2 still only get black screen
Post by: ElPape on February 26, 2003, 11:38:38 pm
Ok, downloaded and installed v0.2 for win. Tought this version would work, or at least, I tought I might give it a try. Well, no luck. I still get a black screen.

Last message in console:

This doesn't look good.  Win98 should set one of these variable.

My recomendations would be:
1) try using opengl mode.
2) try disabling your joystick (this would need to be done from the bios or inside Windows, not exactly sure)
3) try running in 32bit mode.

This really sounds like a video-card issue (or some interaction between SDL and directx).  If so, I'm not really sure what we can do.

Glad it (well at least one of my ideas) worked.

I have filed a bug on your behalf, so that we can try to fix this in the future.

Bug #202 if you care
