Everything is black with the new patch



  • I’ve been playing this game for about 5-6 months now with no problems. After today’s patch, everything is black for me. In a server, the background to the main menu, the background to the server browser, etc. When I’m in game all I see is the chat box and the kill feed. Everything else is just black.

    I’m on Windows 7 64-bit.



  • Same thing for me and a lot of other players.



  • OP is racist.



  • Yeah wtf is going on



  • Can you post a patch to Steam to undo the latest patch ASAP? I think you guys forgot to test this one on a few graphic cards?

  • Hey guys, read a fix which I can confirm works for me. Assuming you all have a similar issue, give this a shot:

    @Benvolio708:

    Changing SHSecondaryLighting and DirectionalLightmaps from false to true in UDKSystemSettings.ini fixed black screen for me and my brother. Hope it helps!



  • I just bought the game and have this issue. Changing SHSecondaryLightning and DirectionalILightmaps from false to true doesnt help. This is very frustrating and I feel like i just wasted money



  • Doesn’t work for me at all!



  • first I had the problem of the black screen but now I cant even get onto the game because it crashes instantly when trying to get on.
    does anyone have any help they could give me.



  • Are there any updates with this? Editing the file didn’t help me.



  • TB told me to suck their nipples.



  • Huh. Thought they fixed this.
    Try deleting your config files and let the game re-create them.

    Yeah you’re right they did fix it. I retract my nipple suction.
