I only play 1 player, as I'm alone. I have Nvidia. I don't think I have ATI/AMD. The display doesn't rotate when I'm in the middle of a game. When I open the game, the display is already rotated. It seems to be only Tempest that this happens to and it happens to other games after I try to play Tempest...some of the time.
