Rogue Spear and desk top icons.

  concise 22:19 02 Jun 2004

Anybody know why after playing RogueSpear on my PC
(W98)the desktop icons become re-arranged into a rather neat but not wanted block top leftish on screen? And how do I prevent this? No unkind remarks about still playing RogueSpear, please, I am rather sensitive.

Does the screen resolution change for this game and are your icons not set to autoarrange?

Does Rogue Spear change your resolution by any chance? This may account for your icons moving about. TT

Thanks for responding. Screen resolution is the same for pc screen and game i.e. 1024 x 768. I set out the icons manually, click "line up" to neaten them and then "update desktop". I may have changed from 'high color' to 'true color'. Could this be it? I'll check it out in the morning! and report.
Thanks again.

After trying all combinations of colour and resolution and interminable episodes of Rogue spear (perhaps never again), during the desk top setting up procedure I eventually got round to clicking "refresh". Problem solved. That's what happens if you empty your mind playing follish games.

No. It's started doing it again!?!?

Use the autoarrange feature

Tried the auto arrange and it immediately auto arranged them in the same way that Rogue spear does which is far removed from how I set them out.
I guess there is a clue here but not to me I'm afraid.
