Blackspace 'remembering' images

Postby KathAveara » Fri Sep 27, 2013 10:44 am

So, I've been revisiting Exile recently, but I've found that when I mouse over the blackspace above and below the game screen (to click on the journals, say) a trail of the cursor persists and flickers and is insanely annoying. The same thing happens when I bring up the pause menu. The bottom of the menu persists in the blackspace. Does anyone know how this is being caused, and/or how to fix it? My computer is on Win7, and changing the compatibility mode settings does not help.

Which version were you using?

I've had this problem too using the DVD version (from the 10th anniversary edition), but it runs just fine using the original cd version. (I also am running Windows 7)

Gah, who needs Windows 7? I play Myst on Windows 2000! (wait, Myst III doesn't work there.)

Whatever, you should try changing the graphics mode when starting the game. I believe there is DirectDraw and Software, the latter one worked better for me. Oh, and if you don't get the selection window, hold Alt when starting the game.
