YSF doesn't work on startup

Post by BreekiBoots » Tue Apr 04, 2017 9:09 am

Whenever I start up YSF, I hear the sounds for the demo mode as normal, which stops if I hit any key. However, nothing displays- not even the window itself shows up. The icon may take a few seconds to show in my taskbar. This happens with the gl2, gl1 and d3d9 versions, and it only started doing this today. Any ideas as to what may be causing this?

Are you switching back to an older version after using a newer one? Because if you have, hit the reset button! Otherwise, I can't help you. (Anyone else have an idea?)

Ah, it seems I absent-mindedly replicated this thread. Whoops.

I've got a few rar rawr packed versions of YS and they aren't viruses. i'd advise re-installing and see if that helps.
