Screen is black / almost blank on Mach3 start.
« on: April 13, 2015, 09:08:18 PM »
When i start up Mach 3 it immediately goes to a black screen.
i can see the message scrolling to press reset to start the system.
The menus are there too.
When i go to screen sets and load the screen set again it works fine from then on, until i close it and reopen. then we are back to the black screen.

See the link for a picture of said black screen  http://i.imgur.com/ui0vJLa.jpg

Thanks to anyone who can help !

This seemed to happen after i installed this mod to my MPG.

Can you please zip your xml with your screenset, its associated buttons (if non standard) any pluginyou are using and then attach to the forum.

I have attached a zip file of my XML.

I didn't attach the screen set, it does it with all of them.
I am using the blue / silver screen set from the website.

Thanks for all your help Hood., i have tried everything i can think of.

If i cant get it going, is there a way to asign a hotkey like ALT+L to reload the screenset ??

I purchased a Syil X4 Plus from a guy on Kijiji in my town for $3800.

It came with this program Mach 3 installed.

Turns out that it is a pirated copy, I immediately uninstalled it thinking that must be my problem. Reinstalled the newest version off the website ( 500 line trial ). I figure I can try it and see, it still goes to a black screen, and now every 3 or 4 clicks on any button turns the screen black again.

This software is far too buggy for me, I can't be running a program and then have my screen go black on me, someone or the machine could be seriously hurt or damaged.

Thanks for everyone's time, but since I have not been able to fix this I am going to uninstall it completely tomorrow and try a different controller program.
