Recommended Posts

Not sure if this has been brought up before but couldn't trace it it so...

GameEx is working fine, but when i exit to desktop all i get is a black screen. if i click show desktop i get the icons but with a black background my wall paper has gone i have to go to personalize and re-select my wallpaper. Any Ideas?.

Mind attaching your gameex.ini and log.txt files to take a look at any clues they might provide? Thanks!

The log would help but you can turn off hide desktop to disable that feature.

Sounds like HideOS.exe to me. I've had similar problems with it. There's a setting in GemVoy to disable HideOS.exe entirely. That stops it for me.
