Win10 starts spawning windows during Load
I'm running Windows 10 with all updates applied and have an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti video card driving a Samsung G9 Odyssey monitor capable of 5120 x 1440 resolution. When in the step 1 load process, APP or Windows goes into a loop spawning multiple windows. The only way to make it stop is to change the screen resolution. I've tried running APP at every resolution the video card allows, but the same problem occurs. Thankfully, the problem doesn't occur at any other step in APP's processes. Has anyone ever seen anything like this?
Could you have a read through this post? https://www.astropixelprocessor.com/community/windows/windows-64-bit-app-glitchy/paged/2/
It may be related with an issue that seems to crop up sometimes with Nvidia drivers/cards, incredibly frustrating bug somewhere which we're not completely able to find yet. There are some things that helped people in that post.
Adding the line -Dsun.java2d.d3d=false to AstroPixelProcessor.cfg appears to have fixed the problem. Thank you VERY much. That was a maddening problem.
By the way, as Raymond Schilke mentioned in his post, I am also running an Alienware computer. That might be a clue.
Yes, apologies for that inconvenience, we hope to get this working better when we migrate to Java 11.
