Summary0000537: Will not display in Windowed Mode
DescriptionInstead of the normal graphics windowed mode only displays a solid black box. When I then hit F11 to switch to full screen it does so easily and I can play. However if I switch back to windowed mode it is just a black box again.

I can still access the menus and "play" blindly; but it does not display anything other than solid black.
Steps To ReproduceLaunch in windowed mode, either via init options or the prompt.
Switch to windowed mode after it launches full screen.

Either case the result is the same, a black box with apparently nothing in it.
Additional InformationWhen I was using Windows 7 RC (I upgraded so I could play this without it blue screening on my every two hours) I did not have this problem. It ran in Windowed mode just fine.

I attempted to use some alternate tile sets; and the result was the same.

I adjusted the refresh options; but nothing changed.

Make sure your graphics drivers are up-to-date. Win 7 drivers were often shaky at launch.

Perhaps you are correct... as it is now spontaneously working right. I guess it lied to me when it said it was finished updating even though I spent two hours making sure before I started. Stupid 7.
