For some reason, QfG2 VGA isn't working for me now. frown.gif Or at least, it's not working in full-screen mode... when I run it, I can hear the opening music, but can't see anything. If I run it in a windowed mode, everything's fine, but really much too small to see anything.

This has never happened to me before... any ideas what I can do? I'm using a BenQ 19" LCD monitor, by the way, if that helps, and a Radeon 9550 video card - never had any problems with either of them.

There are many types of magic, but all require a sharp mind and a cool head. There is no puzzle I can't solve, no problem I can't think my way out of. When you feel confused or uncertain, you can always rely on me to untangle the knots and put everything back in order for you.

What's the error message you're getting? If it has to do with the screen resolution, trying going into the Settings menu from the launcher and on graphics display, you can specify at 2x or 3x nearest neighbor filter, which will let the game run in a higher resolution, in case it was having problems adjusting back and forth with your desktop resolution.

Personally, I've had some problems with my game ever since v1.1 came out; on the original, I was able to run in windowed mode with a decent sized screen, but now when I try to run in windowed mode with anything higher than the default resolution, it forces me into full-screen mode.

Well, the error message is a problem... it's not a QfG2-VGA error message, but a monitor error message - after which all I get is black (plus game music, of course). frown.gif

I'll try your solution and let you know how it goes. Thanks! :-)

Mine does that with various older games. My monitor/settings/whatever apparently won't support the resolution, so I just get a black screen with "RESOLUTION NOT SUPPORTED" plastered on it. Thus forcing me to play in Windowed mode.

As to making it bigger, there is an AGS program setup thing you can use to make it run at 640x400. If you did the normal install thing should be in your AGD Interactive -> QFG2 VGA folder as Settings Menu. If that's too small for you still, I have no idea how else to help. Sorry.

Hurray, it worked! smile.gif I used windowed mode, then changed it to make it double the size, and now everything's visible again. Huzzah! *smile* Thanks, Matthias and RogueIce. smile.gif

Glad to be of service wink.gif

I figured out my screen resolution problems as well, and managed to get the game to run correctly in windowed mode. biggrin.gif I'm running on "3x nearest neighbor filter" with the 960x600 resolution checked, and it works in windowed mode. smile.gif

Hmmm... yes, I tried the 3x option, but it made the graphics far too large, so that I could see pixels on Shameen's face. wink.gif So I changed it back to 2x, and everything is good again. smile.gif
