Screen stays black in windowed mode with 32-bit desktop


I just downloaded WinUAE 1.0, and noticed that the window stays black unless I drop my desktop resolution down to 16 bits. Then it works fine, and it also works in fullscreen mode even if the desktop is 32-bits deep.

I can run it, but it's a bit awkward this way. Any ideas how to fix this?

Did you start the 16-bit detection format when you first started WinUAE!?

Ideas: Update your video card drivers and DirectX distro.

Updating the video driver fixed the problem! Thanks!

Running the 16-bit pixel format detection had no effect, however.
