Green screen on exit

Green screen on exit
June 05, 2010 01:10PM
I read somewhere that if you get a noisy green screen when exiting the application it means there are memory leaks.If that's true, it seems I don't have any, since (in normal conditions) my app exits as it should (in fact, I've been really careful about memory leaks). However, if I 'force it', that is if I try to close it as soon as it opens I get a green screen.

I thought it might be a synchronization problem (either when loading a buffer from an external image file, or when rendering). Maybe someone could help me out with ways to fix this. It's not that big of a problem, but I'd rather see it gone.

EDIT: I should also add that according to the log file my app produces, there are no leaks.

it's not related to memory leak.
It's how applications initialize video.

try to add following code at the end of main:

VIDEO_ClearFrameBuffer(vmode, xfb, COLOR_BLACK);
