Video issue with the demo

Recommended Posts

I'm having a strange problem with the demo and I'm wondering if the same thing would happen with the full release and if there is anything I can do about it. What happens is this - any time the game needs to open a new window or move from screen to screen (as when starting a new game), there is a pause and I see a black screen for a second or two (seems like a mode switch is going on). This happens *every* time, even if all the game is doing is popping up a message box about something. System:

P4 2.53GHz with 512MB, running XP Home SP1

GeForce4 Ti4600 with 40.72 Detonators

Desktop at 1280x1024, 32bit color

Any ideas? I've tried setting my desktop to 1024x768 but that didn't help.

Sounds like there might be another application that is also wants main control while SC is running, might be why when SC wants to open a new window it is behaving as it does. You could see what other applications are running at the same time and if you have any that *like* to be the TOP window sort of thing. I would also try setting the line 'directx = 0' in your SC.ini file to see if that helps as it may be a DirectX problem. The SC.ini file can be found in your Strategic Command installation directory.

Let me know if this helps,
