I'm running x64 Windows 7 (Build 7000).

If I try and load World of Goo with both monitors active it just blinks back and forth between black and windows background with the Would of Goo sound playing.

If i revert to one monitor, I do not have this issue. But that's a bit of a hassle.

I'm guessing windows 7 is not supported and I'm SOL, but I figured I'd post ask. I am running in XP SP 2 compat mode as administrator.

What graphics card??

Most graphics cards enable app profiling to switch settings automatically upon launching a certain app, including the ability to set it to one screen only.

*Identical* problem.

Using Win7 x64 RTM with Nvidia Quadro NVS 160M (256MB RAM) running the new Nvidia Win7 x64 WHQL v186.03 drivers.  CPU is Intel T9600 (Core 2 Dual 2.8) with 8 GB RAM.  Dual Dell 2408 monitors and UltraMon v3.0.7 x64 Beta.

I'd love someone to fix this.  I miss my happy game!  Help?

Changing World of Goo resolution to my main monitor resolution did the trick.

See config.txt in the properties folder of world of goo.
