CD32 expansion slot VGA

Hey there, i'm having some trouble figuring out how to get my CD32 to display video through my 7-bit expansion slot on a Benq BL702a screen. I've used the screen successfully with my A1200 and a RGB-VGA adapter. When I boot up the CD32 I can see the animated logo screen, but once the game has loaded the screen just goes blank. I can tell that the game is actually loaded because the sounds are playing.

Make sure the expansion card is regnised by holding down the mouse buttons when turning on the CD32 and going to expansion diagnostics.
If its not, clean the contacts and try again.

Are you getting display using any other connection? If yes then we know your RGB chip is working fine.

Hey, I tried to hold down the mouse buttons but then I am taken to a weird key&lock screen. I can't get any further from there. The strange thing is that the flashy cd32 intro screen is displayed as you'd expect and also the lock screen is shown flawlessly. So I guess there is nothing wrong with the VGA port on the expansion slot. Could it be some kind of NTSC vs PAL issue? I'm pretty sure the cd32 is PAL, but i'm not so sure about the game. It's the only game I have at the moment. :P
