Game locks up computer when i start it.
« on: September 07, 2007, 02:34:00 pm »

I start it in windowed mode and after the first two chords of music play, the system locks up.  I have to do a Ctrl-Alt-Del to re-start it.  Any suggestions?

Does Kobold Quest have the same problem?  KQ is significantly more simple but based on the same code, so that'll let us know if the problem is DF specific.  I don't have a specific idea right now, though perhaps somebody else has seen this before.

Does it work without sound?  Open up DF_INSTALL/data/init/init.txt and change [SOUND:ON] to [SOUND:OFF]

You might try updating your sound card drivers, or your motherboard sound drivers if you have on-board sound.  The music files are in .ogg format, in DF_INSTALL/data/sound, but I don't know if trying to play them in a music player would really confirm anything useful or not.

EDIT: Also you mention windowed mode specifically.  Does sound work in full screen mode?
