Issues fixed[edit]

Black screen upon loading game[edit]

This problem occurs because the game could not catch your PC resolution automatically, the solution is to exit fullscreen upon starting and play in windowed mode.
Workaround[2]
  1. Start the game.
  2. Press Alt+ Enter at the black screen.
  3. Game should be windowed with display.

Issues unresolved[edit]

Black screen after hitting Enter in the main screen[edit]

Run in Windows 7 compatibility and as administrator[citation needed]

Players reported that running the game in Windows 7 compatibility options and as administrator sometimes help.
