Hello. I'm considering switching to xith3d for my game, but I've run into some configuration problems. I'm a very experienced programmer in java and java3d. My game runs via jnlp, so I'm particularly interested in getting that to work.
I got xith set up in eclipse, and if I run the demo applications under Xith3DTestLauncher, they run. But when I run any of the tests on their own, I just get a black screen. The same happens when I try this java web start application:http://xith.org/archive/jws/FirstPersonInputHandlerTest.jnlp
I noticed that the window icon (in the upper left corner) is different when it doesn't work. It seems that the test apps use LWJGL by default, which seems to be the problem. I don't yet understand all of the options for the backing library. Is there a good place I can read about this, and is there a command line arg that can be used on that example .jnlp program to use one of the configurations that works? I'd prefer to just get the LWJGL working, but I'm wondering if any of my users will have the same problem. Also, there are no error messages, is there a way to turn on some debugging info?
I downloaded LWJGL and ran the test program, and it works fine on my computer.
Also, some of the examples print this:
Warning: Standalone-incapable OpenGLLayer selected. Wrapping in dummy frame. Things may not work as expected.
That seems to be related. What's the deal with a dummy frame? What is the solution?
The test .jnlp program works fine on my other computer.
update: I get the following error from the windows event log:
Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered.
I wish I could find out what call was causing the problem.
Thanks in advance!

Java3d and most games run great. I believe my drivers are up to date.
