Wow, that is neat to hear that you have gone commercial with this. I remember the original demo that you posted...

Good work!

When it goes fullscreen at the beginning, I get an error directly from the monitor with a black screen.

* 72k / 139Hz
* out of range

This is highly unusual. I tried looking at the config file to start in windowed mode, but it looks to be binary.

Thank you, I hope to play your game :)

I suspect Ramius will be on that shortly, but in the meantime if you begin with the commandline extension "-win" the game will begin in windowed mode. ("-full" for fullscreen.) I hope that works, I hope you enjoy it. :)

That did it, thanks for the tip.

It's really great. I love the gfx style.

EDIT:
Ramius, thanks for the reply. Your theory sounds correct because my monitor is very old and my graphics card is very new. I have had this problem once/twice before. Definitely not very usual. [smile]

It sounds like your monitor is lying to Direct3D about which refresh rates it can handle. In order to resolve this issue, you will need to first run the game in Windowed mode (via the -win command line argument), then navigate to the Game Options menu and change the Refresh Rate setting from Optimal to 60 (or to any other rate that you're sure is supported). Back out of the options menu, and while in the main game menu press ALT-ENTER to switch to fullscreen mode. Hopefully the game will now run in full fullscreen glory without further issues. [smile]
