There are some issues with things like alt-tabbing/minimizing and stuff of that nature that pop up from time to time for some players. I know that Aaron is working on this problem and hopefully will have it completely resolved!

However, a couple of the ship displays, especially my ship status, goes all garbled. I tried to set my video mode to "Safe", and downloaded the newest Version of DirectX, so I don't see what the problem could be. I'm running a newer system, at 2.2GH, 256 MB of RAM, Intel 82845G graphics card, (at least that's what I think the #'s are ) Can anybody help me?? Please??
Hmm, I am looking at Intel's site for your video card. Make sure you have the latest Intel drivers located here:
http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scri...?ProductID=865
Select your OS and go from there. Only of course after you make sure that you have that particular kind of graphics controller. If this does not solve your problem, try contacting Aaron directly.
I hope this trouble with onboard video is not a trend...

I run StarFury in a window that is one level in resolution below my main resolution and I haven't had any major problems. Of course since it is a window, I don't have to worry about it getting messed up from being minimized, as I don't have to minimize it.

I had the same problem as Renegade 13. The game froze, I window-keyed out, came back and the freezing was gone but some chumpy graphics appeared on the mouse and menus. Resolved it by saving and restarting the game.
PC: AMD 1.4GHz, 448 MB RAM (64+128+256), GeForce 4 64MB video, directx latest (9?), HDD 120GB seagate.

Yep, that's the same. I tried upgrading my video card's drivers, but found the latest Version was already installed. I haven't yet figured out the problem. But the game still works, so I can't complain too much

I'm noticing that a lot of the systems (though not all) that are having problems have AMD processors. Is anyone with an AMD processor able to run?

Updated all drivers/directx but still the freezing is spoiling the fun as I have to exit the game and start it again in order to get rid of the messed-up display. Reloading the game is no good; it is required to restart the game. This happens ~every 5-10 minutes. Any ideas?
