Strange flashing of screens

I downloaded this game, but when I tried to play it, it kept flashing back and forth between screens and the cursor jumped all over the place. I'm going to try uninstalling and starting over.

I'm having the same problem. Did the unistall work?

Ditto, flashing screen completely unable to play. Anyone find a fix?

Screen went black when I tried to play. Couldn't even bring up task manager - had to do a hard shutdown. Uninstalled and tried again with same results. Windows 7 home premium 64 bit. Oh well - looked like a fun game. Glad I tried before I bought.

Reinstall had same results.

If you open the config.ini file in the Safecracker home directory (the same directory with the Safecracker.exe file in it), change the line reading "bFullScreen=1" to "bFullScreen=0", and close and save the file, the program will open in windowed mode, which eliminated the flickering effect for me.

Hope that helps.
