Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I'm sticking this behind a spoiler because I know some people have trouble looking at repeating patterns:
I can't tell whether these two green subpixels are dead or stuck. I've tried the massaging thing. I probably didn't give that site with the colorful patterns long enough, but I wanted to see if there were other options before letting it sit for a few hours.
This is a not too old laptop (2009 Toshiba Satellite), so it doesn't seem old enough for this to be a serious issue. In your experience, is this likely to be an isolated thing, or should I be scraping together enough money to buy an external monitor? Are there any other things I can do to get these pixels back in line? They're off to the side where text and images rarely sit, and green isn't exactly a common color, so it's not much of an annoyance.
edit: The red and blue subpixels work fine on those two pixels. That's a green test screen, so only the green subpixels are lit. I don't know if that matters.
edit: I took a closer look with an all black screen. The green is definitely partially lit, so it looks like they're stuck, not dead.
