I just ran bzflag 2.04 on new computer:

OS: WinXP sp2+
CPU: P4 3.4ghz
Memory: 2gb
Video: ATI Radeon X600 256mb
Monitor: Dell 19" (1907FP) Digital LCD (**Connected to computer via DVI, not VGA)

During gameplay my screen will go black for a split second and then return to the game. It's not minimizing to the desktop, just going black and then coming back, this repeats.

Any ideas?

Check for a new video driver first...

I have the latest driver. It seems to be related to the DVI connection, if I connect via VGA, no issues.
