I get a blank screen when I use Alt+Tab. Has the game crashed?
Issue: If you use the Alt+Tab combination to swap between windows and then select to go back into Creatures 3 or Creatures Adventures, it may sometimes simply be a blank black screen.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Analysis: So far no one has reported this issue to Creature Labs, it was an issue which was discovered in house. It seems that the issue is only relevant to some video card types. Most modern day video cards seem able to handle the switching of resolutions.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Resolution: A work around for the issue is to hold down CTRL and press the Pause/Break key. You will then see a dialogue box which asks you if you want to quit without saving, click the NO button and the screen resolution should switch back to the standard game.
