Game blackout ... version 1.04RC5

Sat May 16, 2015 7:30 pm

I have interesting situation on my two computers (one W7/32b, second one W7/64b) ... on both I have the same installation, but on W7/64b game always "crashed" to black screen after some time of playing.
Here is information from main.log file:

Is it the screensaver triggering? The Helpdesk can help you pinpoint the problem, I would say this might be a video memory issue.

I'm sure it is not screensaver problem ... it was first I checked. The same any power settings etc.
It is strange, that I have this problem only with PON (I have more AGEOD game) and I think it started when I updated my graphics driver ... so it should be problem of the driver and you cannot help me. On the other side is strange, that problem is only with PON ...
It crashed always after some time of playing ... sometime in minute or two, sometime after ten minutes ... doesn't matter if I'm doing something or not ...

PON use an alternate version of our graphic engine so this is not that weird. If you want to dig further, you can reach the support people here: support@slitherine.co.uk
