Ysflight suddenly not working?

Post by BreekiBoots » Tue Apr 04, 2017 4:45 am

For some reason, YSF isn't working when I open it up. It plays the sounds for the pre-menu demo, but it doesn't actually open. The icon may hang in my taskbar as semi-transparent for a few seconds. This happens for both the d3d9 and gl1 versions. It only started doing this yesterday- any ideas?
cheers

Click on the taskbar icon, Alt+Space, Maximise.

Enjoy your returned YSF experience.

There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!

And if all else fails, hit the reset button!

Odd. Alt+space worked, but what could have been the cause of this?

There's a bug in the program where it doesn't save window position correctly I believe.
