    Black Screen on Start

    Howdy folks. Not sure what I did to trigger this, but recently it seems almost every other time I launch ZQuest my monitor goes black and I can't seem to get out of the program (cntrl+alt+delete and command+d don't leave the black screen).

    I've only started seeing this as of yesterday. Any ideas?

    What operating system are you running ZQuest in? (We have unpredictable problems with Win 8)
    Also, which version of Zelda Classic are you running? If you ARE using Windows 8, you might want to consider 2.5.1 RC1.

    It's odd that the task manager doesn't abate the problem. Maybe @Saffith knows something about this.

    Running on Windows 7, version of ZC seems to be 2.50 downloaded 5/29/2013.

    And yeah. The fact that it completely locks down my screen is what I find concerning. Still haven't found a common factor in what's causing it either... so far it seems to work correctly half the time.

    Strange, sounds more like hardware or windows doing something stupid, although I don't know what if anything at all.

    What happens if you open up ag.cfg file and fiddle with the gfx values? Also, does running in any compatibility mode or disabling desktop composition help?

    I reinstalled and am not having any issues anymore... however the old version seems to be going to a black screen every time.

    Should I post the ag.cfg file? I'm not exactly sure what values I should be changing there.

    edit: Nevermind, apparently the issue is fullscreening, Zelda Classic does the same thing as ZQuest had been doing previously.

    ...anyone else ever have this problem?
