If you are using the Cornell version, just ignore those messages. If you
actually end up with a local video window, then you must have an entry in
system.ini [drivers] section that says "msvideo=" plus some filename. Put a
semicolon (;) in front of this line to get rid of the local video window and
the static in it.
