I have installed v6.4 on my pc (running XP). The accuracy bar flickers and the numeric bar count seems to display the current and previous bar count numbers concurrently atop each other (also flickering) when play is selected, throughout play and at the end of play. The display is a 19" LCD monitor. NB: These were not occurring with v6.2 installed on the same computer. Thoughts?
Yes I have seen this problem, it is caused by an old Intel graphic
display drivers for your hardware I assume that you have Intel
graphic chips on your PC. Is that right?
There are three possible fixes:
a) turn off the video optimisation in the Piano Booster menu
setup/preferences. But this may make Piano Booster run too slowly with
b) You update to the latest version of the Intel graphic drivers from
the Intel site. That should fix the problem.
c) I change the code to how it used to work on 0.6.2 but this would
make it slower for every body else.
Let me know if a or b works for you if not I will consider option c)
can you post details of the hardware that you are running on.
Please let me know how you get on.

Thanks for the suggestions.
Turning off video optimisation did the trick. No more flicker.
(No problems with speed either, with video optimization off. So, all good.)
