Black Screen when loading in full screen
« on: May 14, 2017, 03:58:36 PM »
Hi all, I downloaded the demo of the game because I read a lot of good things about it, but I can't start it properly on full screen. On Window screen everything works fine and the game starts fine. On fullscreen, only the sound plays.

I tried different combinations in the settings but nothing. My screen is 1900x1200, GPU drivers updated, W10 updated (latest update 'creator' also). I have a second screen plugged in (my TV actually) but I have disabled sharing and I am only running my PC monitor.

Any suggestions please? I really want to play this game.

Try steam this forum is kinda dead but my suggestion is to run winstetup.exe and mess with the settings maybe have a resolurion that almost takes up all the screen but not full screen like nerest nieghbor or something

I'm seeing the same issue. Nvidia GTX 970 here, W10 with all the updates installed. Windowed mode works but all the full-screen settings result in a black screen.

Same here with a GTX 1080.

I don't often see the threads on this forum. Sorry about that! Try running in DirectDraw mode.
