Welp, this is a bit of a problem. Never had this issue before until I got back into the game today, (or rather yesterday I should say given the time), I noticed that my game seems to autominize on me and when I maximize the game I get the red screen.

I 'did' search to see if anyone else had this problem and found several people who posted solutions, including deleting client settings.ini - that only fixed it for the first time this happened, after that it didn't matter if I deleted the file or not, the game would 'always' minimize on me and then when I maximize I get the red screen.

Don't suppose anyone else has any idea's on how to fix this? Rather annoying given I just got back into this game to play with a few friends =(

Hi Kalshion,

Are there any driver updates available for your card? Can you get around this by playing in fullscreen windowed? Also, just to check, do you have 2 screens?

Actually I realized that I forgot to SET my game to be in Fullscreen Windowed, as that is how I always played in the past; might be why I never had this problem before. I always do seen to have issues with some games when the yare strictly in full screen mode (bleh!)

Anyway, video drivers are up-to-date, and I don't run two monitors (not yet, in the process of getting another monitor though so I can)

Restarting system, deleting the client settings, and then restarting the game seems to have fixed the issue for now; I'll keep an eye on it.

I have this on the first login each day. But when I log in the second time without rebooting machine it's fine.
