Installed the WHQL driver and it does nothing to that issue. It remains a blackscreen unless I move my mouse constantly. Even then, all it does is just flicker a background image and not move. However the HUD is always on, even the radar is actively moving. Strange.
Just a note. I wonder if this is any help... the Raider Wars gameplay background and elements work in 3.6.10r. However, the HUD is still stagnant and will not move. Interestingly, I noticed that there is no ship model displayed at the right of the bottom center. Or for the left, when hostile target is selected. RADAR is working, Targeting is also working. But no speed can be adjusted.
In summary I am static, dead in space. After a while, it just froze all over.
