    it appears the mouse actually does click things on the frozen screen but i can not see it until i tab out and back again
    so it is not a crash
    i believe it to be a driver issue because it worked previously
    i tried updating my drivers but it won't work
    before driver update, spore was flickering, starbound was fine. after update spore is fine and starbound is blank.

    i tried setting the applications to open with administrator permissions and in compatibility modes for windows 7 and 8. this is on windows 10.

    this happened before on my windows 8 computer and i figured it was a lost cause because it was so out of date by then. but it's happening again now, and it's the same thing, so maybe if i can learn what's doing it here i can fix it there too.

    i am using mods but that isn't what made the change. i have previously uninstalled all mods and reinstalled the game and it did the same, it seems to be driver based.

    it is the same on 64bit and 32bit.

    i am told this might be an issue between opengl libs and directx, since i used lenovo vantage to update intel hd graphics 4600, but that doesn't explain why it happened before on a different laptop windows 8

    i got it to work. i just had to try every driver in zip form until it did a thing. now i have all my programs working, and the only conflicts i'm getting are ones that think my laptop is too old. blender 3.6 opens, starbound opens, spore still opens, godot 3 opens but it'll probably yell at me in vulkan.
