Is this a problem that happend to others or is it just me?
I have played this game for years now and now or a few weeks the game goes black after I'm logged in for a while.
The only thing I can do is restart the pc.
I do hear ingame sounds when the screen is black ...
I've never seen that happen. Mine crashed in the middle of a mission over the weekend. First time ever since I started playing several years ago. I did a "force verify" on the files and it seems fine now. You could give that a try. It only takes a short time to complete.
how do I do that?
My gamecrash occurs mostly in the middle of a mission or map transfer
just tried force verify, started the game again, flew to a starbase, entered it and walked around, after a few minutes black screen.
I also tried to install dx9 as troubleshooting of cryptic suggests and tried to start the game in 32bit mode.
I also had to do that. I forgot to mention it because I forgot. I also know they have been having Nvidia driver issues with certain OS versions. That could be something to check into.
and what issues are that? cause it is a Nvidea card running on win10
Next I tried was focng the dx9 to the game command line: -d3d9 and redused graphics ingae.
I can play for a while but still it shuts down after a while.
Now I watched what happens after the screen goes black and I see its just the monito that is shutting down and wont get back up, still have to do a hard reset to go on the pc again.
I am not sure exactly what the issue is but it was Windows 10 that was having the problem. I personally didn't experience it because I run Windows 7. Hopefully someone who went through and resolved the issue will read this post and be able to direct you on a solution. I have heard people discussing it and I believe there is a fix.
