[0.16.51] Game vs. turning Monitors off/on

Post by Feye » Thu Jan 24, 2019 3:10 pm

So, this is a weird one - the game crashes with an error message "unable to create sprite..." when I turn off/on my Monitors with the game running:

It happened twice now and I think I know what's going on - while the game is running on my main screen in 1080p, the second screen is an old 1600x1200 one. When I turn both screens off and back on, Windows (10) does its thing with moving desktop icons around and playing the "new hardware connected" jingle depending on which screen gets turned on first.
This only occurs if the game window is active and maximized though - not an issue if I minimize it first :?:

(because I doubt my 1080Ti is actually running out of vmem :twisted: )

Keep up the good work :mrgreen:

I blame Display Port for acting like the device is physically unplugged when powered off.

Anyway, as mentioned: this is a duplicate and already fixed for 0.17.
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.
