    Windows 10 and Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge black screen issue


    The game works otherwise well for me, but when I minimize it and then restore it back, the screen stays black and nothing but the cursor is visible. Voices of the game are still working so I think that this is just some kind of graphical issue. The game performed perfectly with Windows 7.

    Graphics card: Ati Radeon x1950 Pro (This very same issue also occurs on my other pc with Win 8.1 & Intel HD Graphics so don't blame my old graphics card for this issue)

    Yuri's Revenge "edition": Command & Conquer: The First Decade (with the latest unofficial 1.03 patch)

    Any fixes?

    Wow ! that brought back memories. Try running it in "compatability mode" http://www.windows10forums.com/artic...bility-mode.7/

    Hi! I have already tried compatibility mode with Win98 and Win XP settings, but no luck. I'm also running it as admin and tried to disable UAC completely but it still doesn't work.

    I hate to say it, but I think Origin's "ultimate" version is the only one that worked on Win8 if I recall. I think I paid around $10 for it but it worked along with all of the older titles. I had no luck getting the decade versions to work and I'm an IT guy

    I hope that there is some simple fix I haven't just found yet. Messing with Origin doesn't sound appealing. :/
