Similar to this report, I am experiencing the map control in any game no longer updating after I lock my computer. It seems to me the 'device is lost,' and needs to be recreated. (This is a common graphics programming bug.)
Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
- Join any BYOND game that has a map control.
- Lock your computer. (Can be done with WindowsKey + L.)
- Wait a second or two.
- Unlock your computer by typing in the correct password.
- The map screen will be black and will no longer update unless the server is rebooted or you reconnect.
Code Snippet (if applicable) to Reproduce Problem:
The map stays visible and keeps updating.
The map becomes black and then no longer updates the screen on its draw region. (If that region of the screen is changed, such as by changing windows, it will not be overwritten.)
Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often? Always.
In other games? All games I've tried, including NEStalgia.
In other user accounts? Most likely.
On other computers? Have not tested.
When does the problem NOT occur?
Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked?
If I use 493.1116, I don't have this problem. I'm seeing this problem in 494.1133.
