I did set those values, and I've tried it on a few different monitors and a tv. I get a brief flash of oversized text then a blank screen rather than any kinds of errors. The system is responding - I can quit out of it by pressing esc, so it's obviously working to some degree, just not giving me the pretty pictures.
At least I now know I can stick with the latest version - thanks.
Try typing OK on the blank screen. If it doesn't work, do it again (so, OKOK).
I had the same thing with some roms, the above helped.
