After a bit of experimenting on an XP machine I found that a few of the video modes are broken. Anti Alias and Anti Alias with Gray work, the others cause a crash, and since the preference is saved, it'll cause the same crash each time LisaEm starts up. Deleting the preferences is a good temporary workaround until I fix the bugs there. Also, under windows, some of the window update events get eaten and the display has regions that aren't updated.

Minimizing and Maximizing the window fixes it, but of course that's another bug that I need to figure out and fix. Received on 2007-11-27 06:30:59
