White Screen of Death
« on: October 06, 2010, 06:07:17 AM »
This problem has occurred since the beginning of me playing Zatikon. I can't verify if it's because of the JAVA, the application, my cruddy computer, or combination of the above. I'm pretty sure I've updated my Java to the latest and have never witnessed a problem like this on any other game despite I don't run heavy graphic intense games.

PROBLEM: Even after just a few minutes of playing with only running Zatikon as the only program, the screen will not let you move,click or perform any actions. If will appear like everything is working, but if you minimize and bring the window up again the entire screen is all white. It typically takes 1-4 minutes to have the screen finally catch up again.  It feels like the Facebook app works better, but I think the same problem occurs.

I have seen this happen as well.  Not sure why though.  Let me know if you discover anything else about what causes it.

I'm on a low resource PC with bad graphics card (despite 1G of ram which I don't think it's even using). It never has problems with flash games or DL'ed games (which could be running out of anything).  So, I'm inclined to believe it's Java combined with my cruddy PC. Maybe there is code that can detect a computer's resources and somehow toggle in low quality mode?

I have had it happen on my computer as well so I don't think its the PC, it must be either something with the game or with Java.  Plus I don't know how we could lower the graphics any more :)

What happened right before it occurred?  Were you playing with the sound option on?
