SCUMM vm don't start 

Hi my english is very bad but i try.

I've downloaded the last version 0.8.0 of SCUMMVM.
I could play with SCUMM VM Monkey Island 1 a little, until I wanted to test the different graphics and sound options of version 0.8.0. After the options I wanted to start the game but the Desktop appeared. Since then I could not start the program any longer.
Every time when I tryed to start SCUMM a little window that looks like the cmd.exe program appeared for a short time.
I read "4.6. ScummVM crashes, but console window disappears too quick to see the error message." I've do that and in the window is the message "WARNING: SDL_SetVideoMode says wo can't switch to that mode!"
I tryed to reinstall Scumm but nothing help. I have an older version of SCUMMVM on the other HD, and up once the program does not start any longer like the new version. Both versions functioned before the graphics and soundsettings.

PLZ HELP Sad
Crying or Very sad

You have probably set the graphics mode to 3x.

This only works in high desktop resolutions.

Simple suggestion:

Either delete the ScummVM.ini file in your windows directory.

Or edit the ScummVM.ini and set the graphics mode to 2x or less there.

Best regards!

Joachim
