- Screen gets black after you start a new game;
- Keys don't work;
- Screen flickers.
Sadly, they are RPG Maker 2003 issues, and I'm not very familiar with them.
I always try to look for help on Google. I've found that some of the following solutions may help, depending on the problem:
- If you are using Windows 7, try running administrator powers;
- If the screen is flickering, try playing on windowed mode (press F4);
- If the keys are glitching, try restarting your computer or configuring your controller.
If you've come across any problems and found a solution, make sure you post here as a comment. It might help other players.
