If Dynamic Details were displayed any time during the execution of the blade/client when minimized it will either crash or display a black screen when restored. Disabling dynamic details and this issue appears to go away. The act of just disabling them won't work until after a restart as whatever the issue is doesn't go away until they have never been displayed during the whole session.

Yup, we've had that too - when using the material overwrite feature on dynamic details, we got a black screen and crash.

Thanks. We've addressed the Direct3D9 crash on minimize.


@Amanda - Can you provide repro steps here?  I'm not sure what you're referring to

Actually, I just realized that I mixed two issues together - when we logged on after the patch, we found that tree leaves were semi-transparent, and dynamic details were able to be seen through them, so we tried overwriting some of our tree materials to see if that'd solve the problem, and that's when we got the black screen and crash - it happened the moment we tried changing the material type from gradient to anything else.

I use dual monitors. 

Load blade , (i have all panels but render , on monitor 2.  Render and main blade panel is on monitor 1)
click on a panel in monitor 2.
resize render / main blade window in any way, including opening a panel etc.
Black screen /freeze

I'm not certain if this is related to dynamic detail mentioned above, I cant repro that,  but this is just the way it happens on my setup.


EDIT:
okay, this does only happen AFTER logging a character into the game.  We do have dynamic details in all areas so whether or not that is the issue or not I dont know, the above stated process will give a black screen every time on my setup.

To add to this, dynamic detail only renders in the radius that is set in the options. Once you go outside of that radius the grass no longer render past that boundary. It takes a restart to make it render again in the radius of your current position, then the same thing happens, only renders within your radius. This is in the player client btw, haven't tested in the blade yet.
