hy do the banners cause the white screen?
I guess it could be caused by different palettes for different images (i mean banners). Maybe to make all the banners with the same palette to fix that? Not sure how to do that.
I removed 1 banner, is the problem still active now?

ddraw refactoring should be the next important thing for research anyways.

Still having same issue :(

Removed all the banners except one.
That should stop the slideshow and avoid the problem while resolving it

in my case, whitechat happens very rarely. about 1 out of 5 alt-tabs.

whereas colorbug happens every single time.

iL put back the banners man, did you not read thread? why made thread if you weren't gonna hear players opinions.  :P

and i dont think im alone in this, does whitechat happen every single time you all alt-tab? ?

It does for me. I was messing with it on my server, and from what I can tell the Naproxen colorfix (the little app that auto kills & restarts explorer.exe) fixes both problems, at least for me on my computer (Win7). Is there any reason we can't just roll that into the war2combat installer and make it the main shortcut that gets added to the desktop?
squeak!

I really don't see killing the explorer.exe as a real solution to the problem, killing it makes it difficult to multitask while playing warcraft. i.e playing music from youtube or running warvideo.

white screen way much better then color bug because it happen rarely.

Color bug is permanent, everytime you alt tab.
