Alt Tab causes a graphic issue

Post by UnoZed » Mon Dec 09, 2019 9:02 am

Hey there, first time poster here since I finally got around playing Legion again after god knows how many years.

I'm having this issue that when everytime I alt tab out of the game and tab back in, the game goes pink and green while having its resolution split into half
Image.

Alt-tabbing again won't fix it.
Running Windows 10 with 1920x1080 resolution. can't find the registry keys for this game to edit its resolution or change it to windowed
Attached is a zip file containing my dxdiag.txt

not all games support alt tabbing, it's either how the game was programed, or the engine used and is common on many games, some times running the game as admin and installing as admin and using a non full screen mode gets around it, but not always

W10 doesn't fully support 16bit displays. As said, you may need to set the compatibility mode on the game EXE (right click and Properties).

I've already tried virtually everything under compatibility settings.

right now I can play it in a 640x480 windowed mode, but since my native resolution is 1920x1080, it doesn't look great.

Sorry you can't solve the issue. Other than not ALT+TABing I don't have a solution. The drivers and OS fullscreen support for DX7 are out of our control unfortunately.

Does this Graphics problem still occur after you exit the game and switch off your PC ? If so, try a reinstall.
