Color and screen layout settings? Sat, 12 March 2011 22:47
Playing M44O always altered my Windows color and screen layout settings. Until Beta 21, my default settings returned when I left the game, but now the altered layout remains. Has there something chagend in Beta 21 that explains this?

Meanwhile I discovered that although I had left M44O and the window had closed, the program was still running in the background, so that was why the settings didn't change to standard. Now I hope that this was an extraordinary incident and I won't have troubles each time I leave the game ...

I have had the same thing : I closed by clicking "Quit", but the program kept on running in the background. At first I didn't realise that, but after a few times, my pc became a bit slow. So I checked the task manager and I saw that M44O was running 4 or 5 times at the same time, consuming a lot of memory ( Laughing "Memoir" consuming a lot of "Memory" Laughing Cool Confused ...)
Anyway : I got round the issue by exiting M44O clicking the (red) cross on the top right.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, both of you should submit this problem with the Bug Report Form! That way the team can fix the issue so the program closes all the way down when you exit... Cool

Yesterday I had to use Google Images to show my 15-year daughter what a vinyl 45 record was...

I remember when there was no rock & roll yet on mainstream radio stations. Most people didn't have televsions. I listened to "The Shadow" and "The Lone Ranger" on the radio. My local movie theater showed 20 cartoons on saturday morning and then a double feature. Nobody on my block in New York City had air conditioning. Soda and beer only came in bottles, not cans. And a pack of cigarettes only cost about 20 cents!

I can remember when my family got our first (black & white) TV.
Shops didn't open late nights or weekends.

Men were men and women were pleased.
