Pocekt Tanks v1.6 black screen

Postby ferrari_22 » 2018-1-01 @ 04:31

Hello

I have Pocket Tanks v1.6, but when I start it .. it starts at resolution 600x800.
So I tried dgVoodoo2_54 by:
1- open dgVoodoo2_54 folder and copy files from MS folder to GAME folder.
2- copy dgVoodooCpl.exe to GAME folder.
3- open dgVoodooCpl.exe and click on this button ( .\) then click ok.

after that when i start the game .. the screen goes black .. but I hear sound of game and i press enter to move me to the main screen .. but i can't see anything.

Although I used dgVoodoo2_54 in Pocket Tnaks v1.3 and works but in v1.6 doesn't work.
Please I ask you for help.

This is all about my laptop: (my Display resolution is 1366x768 ---- Windows 10 Education)

I have found the SOLUTION:
1- Right Click On Desktop And Click Graphic Properties (Intel Graphics in my case).
2- Click (Display) Option.
3- Click Scale Full Screen In Scaling Section.
************
If the above steps didn't work .. Try up coming step with the above :
Get back to main interface of Graphic Properties and click (Power) option .. Then choose Maximum performance.

The Result is the game became full screen stretched as I wanted.
As I think .. You can try this to any game and it will work in most cases .. (remember I said as I think not sure 100%).

Note:
I have returned All the changes I have made in the above steps to it's original case .. AND THE GAME STILL RUNNING IN FULL SCREEN STRETCHED.

THIS IS PROBLEM IS SOLVED :cool:
