Can't run the demo
« on: July 05, 2013, 12:39:14 AM »

When I try to load the demo, I just get a black screen. I can hear noises, and if I try to Alt-Tab out, my computer stops communicating with my monitor completely. Anyone know how to fix this?

Just a hunch, but have you tried using the separate "Settings Menu" program to turn off fullscreen?  I seem to recall having an odd aspect ration making someone else' demo act like that with the first one.

Happy to hear that did the trick.  Look forward to seeing your impression of the demo in the Backer's Feddback subforum.  It's always interesting to see what other players think.
