I was playing in full screen mode and the screen saver came up. The screen saver itself was in a lower resolution than normal (same as the game i guess) and when I came back the screen was all black, except for the borders that seperate the different zones of the screen.

the game still played like normal, i could cast my hotkeyed spells, use my map, etc, i just couldnt see anything.

makes me really sad, i had my spell circles, spell power, and luck maxed out with 40 fish and 5 full waterskins in my bags. I was sure this was the one. *sobs*

(off topic but hes a basic\star\druid\earth\spell song mage with alchemy. aside from taking every disadvantage i can deal with, he feels really powerful. arcane bolts are hitting for almost 30.)

i left my game on in the off chance there is some button i can press to tell the game to redraw the screen.

I fear there is no way to rescue that game.
A button to redraw the game is not existing.
You could try to save the game and reload later.

We should investigate if there is a way to prevent the screensaver from turning on.
Will ask is the forum if somebody already solved that issue.
Guess its a windows machine?

yes, its windows xp.

ive come to terms with the loss of that game and just learned to turn the screen saver off myself.

for what its worth, since then there have been a number of tragic deaths more painful that that.

most notable, my boots of waterwalking failed me causing my turn to end mid move... in range of a dragon! 200ish fire damage and a bucket of tears later i decided the fly potions may be worth holding on to...
