0.15.0 Screen Flashing /Flickering in full screen mode

Asked by RE3315 on 2016-08-16

Using Stellarium 0.15.0 on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit with latest update (WinVer 1607). Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 Ti., latest drivers.

After starting up in full-screen mode, the screen flickers rapidly.

If placed in windows mode, it stops and acts normally.
I don't have any other video problems with other apps or games.

has anyone else experienced this or know of a fix? Tried VSYNC OFF, but no change. have uninstalled/reinstalled.

I've used stellarium for a long time, and prior 0.13.x/0.14.x versionson same pc/windows/video card did not exhibit this.

Or is there a way to force Stellarium to start up in windowed mode?

thanks for any suggestions to try.

Please try clean install of Stellarium. Plus check ANGLE mode also please.

Windowed mode you can enable in config.ini: video/fullscreen = false

Thanks Alexander!

Using either ANGLE mode or Windowed mode at start up solves the problem on my system. No more screen flashing!

( assume this is video card/driver related?)
