Hi im hoping someone can give me any clues on a tweak that I can make to my graphics card settings that may help with a problem I've got.

I've had the Sapphire Radeon 9600 card for a few months now and played SOF2 with no problems. I reformated my HD yesterday , reinstalled tthe graphics drivers & got the most uptodate drivers and now I cant use any of the SOF2 minimisers that worked before, as when i maxmise the game after i've had it minimised the screen is so dark I cant see a thing in the game. Once I've shut the game down n gone back in its fine again.

This also happens if i am in the game, appearing offline in MSN and someone comes online.... the graphics instantly go shades darker and makes it impossible to play until i've exited n gone back in.

Ne suggestions to anything I could change to stop this from happening as the minimiser used to come in really handy :uhm:


I don't spend enough time here
