As the title says, when BBZero loads is fine, but when I right click, the menu starts to draw, the it locks up (all you see of the title is the menu name, and partial menu title bar background, the rest of the menu is not seen)
After that is you right click again and the whole screen dims to white with the proverbial BBZero had stopped working, close, wait, search for details. Close and restart, will just produce the same issue if you right click for menu again.
What do you guys think?

Hi klyxmaster,

 

a while ago I had the same issue and in my case it seemed to be caused by either a bug in bbLeanSkin or by a program that's not compatible with this plugin. I didn't find out exactly. I just wanted blackbox to run so I disabled bbLeanSkin and it worked fine after that.

 

Otherwise you might try and check if your AntiVirus (as far as you use one) blocks blackbox or certain ressources of it (dll-files, plugins, etc.). In most of those programs you should be able to whitelist files/folders.

I have never had this issue with bbLean or any of it's derivatives and I have been using Blackbox as my shell non-stop since... mmm 2001?

What OS are you running? (I'm running 7, I have no love for 10).

The only thing that I can think of is that maybe the video driver has a TSR running at startup that is borking bbZero desktop touches.

That doesn't seem likely but it's something to eliminate.

That's a head scratcher.

iT GETS WORSE lol

I installed XZERO450 and that runs perfect! And has all the bells and whistles I like. I went in search of when I found out that Pitkon uses that :-)

"...To be the best..." hehehe

 

Still need to figure out what bbstylemaker to use.

Yes, I double checked, and when i shut that off in the taskman, it seemed to run ok. And I do not run AV's :-)

See above post. so far xzero450 version works really well. lots of toys to tinker with.

ignore the previous comment.

I tracked it down (I think)

It has something to do with the style of my skin

 

If i switch to this skin, it locks up. I think I was attempting to get shadows and outlines to work, but may have put the commands in the wrong section.

Take a look, see what you think

OK

Now I know whats CAUSING it, just cant fix it.

Apparently when I use bbstylemaker and make any changes, then save, thats where the lock up happens, then i have to revert to a style that is functional.

So what is everyone using these days. if it isi bbstylemaker, is there a recent one that works better? I use xzero450

There certainly ease. I stopped using bbstylemaker a long time ago. It was helpful, but at first it didn't work with any other build than BBLean's so I went back to manually editing and using a color picker. Not too fast, but you can take control of every detail.

I cleaned those duplicate lines up in my custom styles after seeing this I'll upload them a bit later. I find bbstylemaker is still pretty useful because it's quicker and you can visualize what your doing a bit better I'd just check the file afterwards knowing this issue. Most of the repeating lines usually gets tossed  into the end of the file in lost & found so it's really not a big time consuming thing cleaning it up after the fact.
