Whenever I play a game in a dos window I can play one game or mission and can't play it again unless I load a different windows program. For instance, in JF3 I can fly one mission and if I try again it will automatically go to the mission briefing and refuse to load the flight sequence. If I exit the game I will usually get a full screen of random colors a split second before I am back in Windows. If I then try to do a normal command prompt window I get no video at all. If I run dxdiag or a windows game and quit I can then go to command prompt or go back to JF3 and play only one more mission before it happens again.
This is not only with JF3. If I load EF2000 the same thing occurs. So there is a video problem here somewhere. It only happens with windowed dos games. Has anyone had this problem before? I also can't get my digital joystick to work with EF2000, but that is another matter.
