View Full Version : Peggle: Black Screen, crashes, can only hear sound

March 24th, 2009, 11:08 PM
When I load Peggle Deluxe, or Peggle Nights trials, I see the entry on the application switcher, I can hear the Pier Gynt suite, but I can't run the game. The desktop becomes unresponsive, as if the window is invisible and not responding, and I have to restart X.

This is with or without Compiz, and I've also tried using Crossover Games.

EDIT: Output from the terminal is this, repeated over and over, so I know it's a display problem:

err:x11settings:X11DRV_ChangeDisplaySettingsEx No matching mode found 800x600x32 @0! (XRandR)

Kill emerald & Compiz -- use Metacity window manager with GTK window decorator. Is your display capable of 800x600 resolution or 1600x1200?

I fixed it by running in a virtual desktop
