    An unwanted border around my window when using Scotts resizer.

    I thought that wasn't there before Ken, thanks for confirming my suspicions.

    What resizer are you using if I may ask?

    Nevermind Ken, I think it may be affecting them all, but just moving the game window by grabbing the title bar or minimizing the game window to the taskbar and back seems to get rid of the border though. That's annoying.

    something interesting I had noticed yesterday, but did not test and confirm till just now. The play area is exactly the same size with or without the border. This is also the case no matter the launch method, golf.exe, launcher, or steam. Mine ends up at 1453 pixles. I quit fixing it..

    Our systems must be a little different because mine wasn't. The overlay I have didn't line up like before so I knew something wasn't right. But tweaking the values in the resizer I use put things back to rights.

    I cannot play WGT golf anymore. The game loads, I go to solo play and try a practice round.

    After I take my first shot, the ball lands in the fairway, then the game crashes to the desktop.

    My screen goes black, if I click my screen, it goes to pure white, Then windows asks if I want to wait for program to respond, or shut it down, Waiting does no good, so I eventually shut it down, Over the last few days, I was able to get my consecutive days and give experience to my CC, but I cannot get more than one shot/swing, then the game crashes.

    I run Windows 10 on a recent desktop PC

    I think I remedied my problem. I'll never try to multitask while playing a game in an emu and launching WGT desktop version again. I traced my problem to that day when I tried playing WGT desktop version in a window along side another game in an emu, it crashed windows.

    I have since downloaded graphics drivers for my system and reinstalled the drivers, (they are legacy) even though my PC is only 1 1/2 years old.

    I suspected something got corrupted in windows when the above occured. So reinstalling the graphics drivers may have solved my problem. 

    I played 3 holes this morning without any problems.

    Thank you

    Still no additional camera views once off the tee on Kiawah on almost all the holes.

    I'm back to crashing to the desktop, thought the video card driver reinstall fixed it, but didn't.

    I previously used your tips (ScottHope's tips), but that didn't fix my problem.

    I'll wait and see if any updates will fix my problem.

    Win 10 64bit desktop, Gigabyte Intel B360M Motherboard, Intel i3 CPU, 8 gig DDR4 ram

    Thank you,


    EDIT: I forgot to add my video card.

    VisionTek AMD Radeon HD 5450

    I just got latest update:

    St Andrews, I don't remember the hole, 2nd shot to green. Landed on green and the swing meter is missing, then crashed to desktop.

    Sorry for bad news.

    Did you get your graphics driver through Windows or AMD Bill?
