i donno why it does this ,but half-of-the-time i get this problem. when i complie a program that uses full screen mode it runs ,then minimizes ,and each time i restore it back ,it keeps minimizing over and over!

here's the code i used its completly normal. the ide stops at and highlight the first line:

graphics 800,600,32,1
write "hello... "
delay 3000
write "...bah u know what im gonna say"
delay 3000
print " ..so what's the point??"

There's nothing in your code, or in Blitz I would say, to cause this.

It must be something else running on your system that doesn't like full-screen apps.

Check if your card supports 32bpp. I've seen this happening on cards that only supports 16-24bpp.

just did a destructive recovery cause of a major system faliure (faliure unrelated to blitz. its a directx problem) :( . i havent had any problems with full screen modes since. perhaps it was a virus that caused this? i donno maybe cause i download freeware and shareware everday lol ,and still do. if this helps anyone else ,the problem mainly happened when my computer went into standby mode. My graphics pad has a few problems with standby and fullscreen, but only cause i leave the mouse on it(tiny desk).
