  1. What you're experiencing is a phenomenon known as overscan, which is quite common with regard to most TV's. Unless your TV was made in the last few years (literally) it most likely doesn't have an overscan compensation function. You should be able to trim the overscan you are experiencing manually from your computer using a forced custom output resolution. You can also adjust the overscan manually from your TV's service menu, if you can access it.
  2. Sounds like a DEP fault. Try #5 in this post: http://www.amaranthia.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=8154&forum=13
  3. Depending on what they do with future versions of Windows you may not have much of a choice regarding switching engines. RMXP is getting quite long in the tooth at this point.
  4. It sounds like this person may be sensitive to using an LCD panel as the main display for their computer coupled with the low frame rate from the Aveyond series of games. It's rare, but some people, looking at moving images on an LCD screen with a frame rate less than 60 FPS, actually develop severe eyestrain. Their eyes can't properly compensate for the "smearing" effect that occurs when the character moves relative to the static background, with the effect being more pronounced in the horizontal plane. My best suggestion would be to play the game on a CRT monitor if you can. Since CRT's operate on a completely different type of rendering technology the strain caused by the "smearing" effect should disappear or be severely reduced in intensity.
  5. Make sure your speakers are turned on. If you're using headphones make sure they are plugged into the correct port. This also applies to desktop systems that don't have integrated speakers.
  6. If the file is there you're most likely looking at file corruption, an error in your file system, actual physical damage to your storage medium, or an error in you system account permissions. I'm betting on #1 or #2.
  7. It would probably work under any of the mature, mainstream virtualization software out there, assuming your system is powerful enough.
  8. If you have tried everything mentioned there probably isn't much more that can be suggested. The only thing I would suggest is to try and deactivate any antivirus programs you may be running since they have been known to cause interference sometimes. Just remember to re-enable them when you are done playing (if it works). If that doesn't work you're probably out of luck. Wish I could be of more help. Some peoples hardware/OS/driver/software combination just aren't compatible with the RGSS software. It's rare, probably one in a few thousand at least, but it does happen. Sorry.
  9. I'm not sure this will be a general solution for most people that experience this peculiar problem. Font corruption is a rather rare issue for modern Windows users. I have a feeling it has more to do with corruption in the font cache, which could be deleted or rebuilt from the main font repository. Replacing core system fonts, such as Arial, could lead to some particularly ugly problems if not done correctly. I'd generally suggest people only try this as a last resort.
  10. I was concerned when the database server went down that it could be a hardware fault, but apparently it wasn't since things are back up and running already. Or, if it was a hardware issue, your host is really quite efficient, getting everything restored in such a timely fashion. :bug: Either way, glad to see everything is back to normal. :party:
  11. I don't think it's a font issue, I think it's a text overlay rendering failure. Go through the steps in the first post of this thread in order and see if it helps: http://www.amaranthia.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=8154&forum=13 You can skip solutions 6 & 7 since they are meant to deal with a common audio problem rather than a visual issue. If none of that helps the only thing that is likely to work is the second solution of the second post in that topic, the one that discusses the problem of a flickering screen. That solution should also work for overlay rendering failures. Unfortunately, since you are running Windows Vista the solution as it's written in that thread will not work. It can still be done in Windows Vista, but it requires installing some additional software and is technically somewhat difficult.
  12. Have you tried running the game in Administrator Mode?
  13. I get those calls from my mom all the time. I always ask her "Did you reboot?" She always says "No..." and after she reboots whatever was going on disappears. Every time I tell her "Mom, I love hearing from you, but please reboot first before calling me. Thanks" But she never remembers.
  14. Interesting, looks like for some reason it isn't able to resolve the users name. Are you using a non-English version of Windows?
  15. I just thought of something last night that might work and is rather easy to implement. I'll test it out on my system and see how it goes.
