    Old game goes black screen and unresponsive, but ok when windowed.


    Yes, this is a known issue, but it seems to be different. I play this old game that's from 2003, but it's got a massive modding community still. It's called Street Legal Racing Redline. Anyhow, whenever I start it up in full screen, it freezes up on a black screen and becomes unresponsive. On top of that it doesn't let me turn it off with task manager, meaning that I need to restart my computer to turn it off. Although, if I change a setting and start the game in windowed mode, it plays completely fine.

    I would play in windowed mode but I need it to be full screen, otherwise there's this thing that doesn't work properly. I tried compatability modes, but to no avail.

    EDIT: I know people who are playing this game on Windows 10 and they are not experiencing this issue. It's something from my end.

    Look into windowed borderless, it may help

    That won't do as I use an ENB for that game that doesn't work properly if it's any kind of windowed.

    Older games that use DX9 typically don't work in Win10 when in full screen mode due to a bug MS introduced. Hopefully they will fix it soon, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Until then, the fix is to run the games windowed borderless a.k.a. windowed full screen. You'll have to choose between playing the game without the ENB, or playing with the ENB broken.

    Okay, guess I'll have to wait... but weird thing is that as stated in the OP, I know people who use Windows 10 and have zero problems with this exact game...

    I have to disagree. I play a lot of DX9 games full screen and they all work fine. Your mileage may vary though.
