ZDoom, XP and my display

Recommended Posts

I downloaded 42.cab for my new PC on XP.

Everything works fine except when I run it the display is mashed until I alt+tab which refreshes it.

It also gets mashed if I change the resolution in-game and here's a weird thing, I took a screenie of it mashed but the screenie came out fine. Any ideas what's causing this?

Too much mash.

tsk tsk, shouldn't this go in source ports? :P

anyway, in display options try turning off either directdraw pallet hack or use attached surfaces (I forget which, but I have both off) I believe those cause fullscreen problems on some machines.

Heh, yeah it tends to mean "thx + it worked"

It wasn't the palatte hack it was the attached surfaces in case anyone else gets this. I should read up on what those actually do but I'm too busy anti-tarding XP atm. Still, I've almost got it in the 'acceptable OS' zone now :)

I hate how Xp's start menu takes up a forth of your screen.

Well change it then. I use the classic menu in XP...
