Yes I am still here and working on Garquest - Tales of Pandaloria, which is going to be awesome and better than all the prequels!
I have a question though. For some reason, the screen flickers black briefly once every few seconds. It does not hurt game performance though it is pretty annoying and looks messy. Does anyone know what might cause this problem? Could it be specific to my machine or has anyone else experienced this before? Any help is appreciated!
I hear about it all of the time from people running their game in fullscreen mode.
The solution is to turn off Hardware acceleration for your graphics card. If you can, I believe people with ATI cards either can't or have a hard time getting it to work. It doesn't hurt game performance as far as I'm aware. It's just a graphics problem. And only seems to show up in Fullscreen mode.
Care to explain? Simply saying don't do it can only be half trusted without a reason being given. I've had no adverse effects doing so before. I don't keep it turned off of course, for a fullscreen game with the flicker problem. And it is recommended for this problem even in professional games.
As far as I'm aware, it can occur on any machine. I don't know much as it's not often reported by those whom have been around for a while and no one has bothered to do a survey of the machine types. Though my assumption is it happens to almost everyone if not everyone.
