Okay, I got it working…so far, without problems. Here’s what I did:
1 Purged both packages from my system.
2 Removed user config directory and files.
3 Re-installed the scorched3d packages
4 In game settings, set fullscreen mode when setting game resolution to screen resolution.
I think #4 was my problem. I set the game resolution to screen resolution but was forgetting to set fullscreen mode. 😳
I believe you should still be able to play in windowed mode when the game resolution is set to the screen resolution. This might be an issue with the graphics driver.
