When I start the game it is completely black
« on: July 23, 2014, 01:44:09 pm »
It was fine before and when I changed the game to my desired settings (not fullscreen) the window has just been black.

I have tried to uninstall and reinstall the game but no luck at all, any fixes?

This is just a complete shot in the dark, but, maybe try disabling the Steam overlay?

Nope, still the exact same.

Hm, not sure why, it should default ok to what it can cope with.

Factory reset instructions are here: http://www.sizefivegames.com/forum/index.php?topic=4883.msg76212#msg76212

Hopefully that'll at least get you back to a point you can work with.

Let me know what your setup is and I'll look into a fix when I'm back up and running :)

Tried that earlier on, but it didn't work at all.

Sorry, I've just moved house and don't have anywhere to set up my dev PC right now.

Will ask Louise to take a look.

Hiya Louise here,
No idea whats wrong, perhaps you can try this for me?

Go into Steam, right click on Gun Monkeys -> Properties -> Launch options and type in "-popupwindow"

that will force it into a boarderless windowed mode.... might help!
