Black Screen

I was enjoying the demo fine, but when I tried to load up the game in fullscreen whilst also watching a film on my other monitor it just gave me a black screen. I could use the other monitor just fine before, don't know why it's broken now.

I tried changing it out of fullscreen by editing the .ini file, no change in windowed mode. Tried deleting local files and the appdata folder, no luck there either.

Does anyone please know how to fix this? Thankyou in advance

Zachtronics would probably say update video drivers and disableFBOs in config.ini, but I think you already got to that.

One friendly suggestion, if you have problems like this post your OS and CPU+GPU model. (SpaceChem is sold on MAC&Linux too)

As for watching a movie while playing SpaceChem..... At least I'm not the only one.

What videoplayer do you use, and happens it too if you 'alt-tab' and start the movie after starting SpaceChem?

It seems that the problem is when flash is running at the time of me starting spacechem. I can run flash fine after spacechem has started up. No idea why this is. :/

Thanks for replying though.
