Screen vanishes in fullscreen

Postby rossdorn » 2019-8-05 @ 02:32


I have been using dosbox for many years, for MsPacman and Qbert and it has worked very well, without any problem at all.

I updated to 74.3 (which may or may NOT be the reason for the problem, some changed display setting may also be) and now, when I press alt + enter, the black window goes large to full screen as always, but then vanishes completely, instead of as usual showing the game on full screen...
The second dosbox window, where I have as always used: strong + f12 to speed up, is still there and open....

The same thing happens with both games

I re-installed 74.... same problem

Thank you

Maybe try updating your video drivers, and see if making a change to the [sdl] output setting in your dosbox configuration file makes a difference (for example, try output=openglnb)
