Krow88 Posted November 25, 2005 Share Posted November 25, 2005 Not sure if anyone else has had this problem. I'm running Rebellion on Windows XP Home on a 1024x768 32-bit resolution. Never had a problem with it until Tuesday evening. After doing a little readjusting character attributes with RebEd, I launched the game. I had all the sound of the introduction, but no visual. Even when I got to the menu, I had the music, but no cockpit or background. Just a black screen. Thinking maybe it was just a lapse in the resolution switch, I tried the standard Esc, Space Bar, and Enter tricks. Got nothing. I hit the Windows key, and my desktop came back up. The only problem was the right side was on the left, and the left was on the right, and there was a three-inch black bar running down the center of it. It proceeded to blink like a strobe light until I turned the monitor off and turned it back on. Then it was fine. A few more experiments with this brought the same result. Then today, it finally worked. I got into the game and was able to see everything. But whenever I click on a message icon, I receive the "Rebellion has performed an illegal operation..." window and the game shuts down, oftentimes reverting my monitor to its ridiculous inside-out state. Anyone have any suggestions as to what the problem is? My first guess is the monitor's pretty much shot, or at least needs to be readjusted in some way. I've switched down to 800x600 and had the same results. Even went to the properties menu of Rebellion itself and selected the "Run in 256 color mode" and 640x480 resolution boxes. Still the same result. And to boot, sometimes it switches halfway. I get everything on half the screen, right in the middle with a giant translucent white box over it. The sides of the screen are black, but the bottom portion of the center plays the game animations, while that milky sheen covers it and the top half of the center of the screen. I've also reinstalled the game, uninstalled and installed it (losing a pair of games in the process) and partial-installed a few things from RebEd itself. Nothing's worked so far. Time to get a new monitor? Or is there some trick for me to find up my sleeve with a little help? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
