I was playing with the options and set PP to run at 800x600 fullscreen.
Now when I try to play (onyx), I see PP for a moment, the screen goes black and I'm stuck looking at nothing.
I'm pretty sure I need to delete a preference file, but I can't seem to find it.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling PP but that didn't cut out the cancer.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Have no fear...

If you're using a Windows operating system, you can try running the full screen fix from http://toomuchwin.com/Support/YPP/fullscreenfix.zip

Extract the .reg file to somewhere like your desktop, double click it, and accept the prompt that appears. This will change the registry settings for Puzzle Pirates to turn fullscreen mode off and reset the size of the window to the default of 800x600.

Make sure your game is completely closed before running it. After it has run, your game should no longer be in full screen mode.


If you're on Mac:
 
1. Click Finder
2. Click "Go" in the taskbar and then "Go to Folder" (Shift+Command+G)
3. Go to: ~/Library/Preferences
4. You are looking for plist file named "rsrc.config.yohoho" An easy way to find this is to search: "rsrc.config.yohoho" and click "Preferences" instead of "This Mac" (it's usually a hidden file)
5-12. Delete the .plist file.
13. Open YPP!

Registry settings - the ultimate in preference files.

Thanks, that worked perfectly.
