Game Starts with Blank Screen

Hi, I just tried to get the latest version of Angband and try it out, but it's not working for me. Both the 3.0.9b stable and 3.1.2v2 beta versions for Windows start to a completely blank/black screen. I can't see anything to know what to do, and there's nothing obvious in the .ini file the game creates that indicates what might be the problem. I'm trying to run this on a new 64-bit Windows 7 machine, so I'm guessing it may be some sort of compatability issue, but telling the program to run in XP SP3 compatibility mode didn't solve the problem either. Can anyone provide some advice on how to get the program to display properly on my system so I can play the game? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Try rebooting.

Thanks, that solved it. I don't remember reading anything about a reboot possibly being necessary, but I could have missed it. I'm a little embarrassed that I didn't think of that earlier -- Windows needs to be reboot after a lot of changes in order to get things working properly. Thanks again, I can play the game now.

I did the same thing you did (and posted too) and also felt silly. Don't worry about it
