Winuae 4.2.1 64 bit problem

I have asked for help on this before but it was so long ago I do not remember everything that was explained to me.

So I open a config file and I press F12 and I get a black screen and end up having to alt-tab my way out of it.

I remember this having to do with choosing Direct3D for the API, but I also remember finding a work around and keeping Direct3D, maybe something to do with RTG or something I just do not remember.

Does anybody have a work around this without using DirectDraw instead of Direct3D (I like using Direct3D filters). I like to use F12 a lot to customize my screen filters and to save state files so it is a bummer not be able to do this.

Thank you in advance.

How long do you wait before you Alt-Tab out? A lot of my environments start off with a black screen for a few seconds before Workbench comes up. It's never instantaneous.

I will try waiting for a while and get back to you.

Well the Winuae screen does not popup even after 2 minutes, just the black screen. I am using a custom config to enter a WHDLoad game so I am not in workbench. Thanks to Hoborg for his HWA automatic loading of games, I love that guy.

I just changed to DirectDraw on one config and the problem went away like I figured but there has to be a work around right? games like Abandoned Places: A time for Heroes looks terrible with its color scheme so with filters it looks a little more playable. I mean I could play it anyway but it really looks better with anti-aliasing.

Is there a older or recent Winuae maybe even a x86 version that will fix this?

I just installed WinUAE 4.3.0 and its the same thing.

Does it happen when on Display tab you use Full-window instead of Fullscreen?

Maybe there could be a relation to some other problems that I sometimes have with WinUAE 4.x and the screen switching under D3D11. In my case WinUAE just gets paused and I can continue after clicking onto the "Pause" key. The desired screen opens then.

Check your WinUAE settings under "Pri. & Extensions" for "Pause emulation", too.

Enable path panel full logging option, start emulation (in windowed mode if it also happens in windowed mode), trigger the problem, wait 5 seconds. Exit.

Attach winuaelog.txt (check winuaebootlog.txt last line for winuaelog.txt path)
