Kept meaning to post this, but it seems after the latest monthly update Windower hangs at a black screen after the game shutdown.

Sometimes after a minute of black screen it will close successfully, but for the most part it will stay at the black screen until terminated. Any gamma changes I have in-game also don't revert a that point.

W10 newest GA build, Radeon RX 570 series, 17.7.

Begrudgingly updated gpu drivers, but no change.

Then loaded with no plugins, and it shut down fine afterwards, so it looks like it's one of the plugins.

I used to have the same problem on XP after some point, and it's been fine for the past few years I've been on W10, but I guess I'll need to figure out which plugin is causing it, or do as mentioned above.

Annoying.

I don't use 3rd party stuff really so I'm not a perfect source of information. But I have heard that this is a common issue when using windowed from multiple people. It doesn't seem to cause any issues, other than needing to manually close the empty black green after you close the game lol.

Pretty much that. It's not detrimental in any way, just annoying.

I only get it when I 2-box. It's been like that for quite some time now, really it's just a minor inconvenience.

I had this happen when I was on an AMD APU way way back in 2008~2011, I could never figure it out and yeah //terminate was my way of shutting down the game to get around that.

I found a post about this song either this forum or blue garter about a year ago. The solution had something to do with manually and loading certain plug INS or something from your INI ti .txt but I haven't been able to find it since and I cannot remember exactly what it said to do. Is this rings any Bells for anyone feel free To let us know
