Another Black Screen on Startup thread.

  • Really? I see a lot of people having this problem since the game was released and it wasn’t fixed yet.

    Well, i just bought Chivalry: Medial Warfare and i can’t play it!! When i run the game the splash comes and then a window comes up but it’s all black and soon stops responding.

    My specs are all above minimum:

    CPU: Intel Pentium(D) Dual Core 2.6GHz
    RAM: 2GB
    GPU: Nvidia GT430 1024mb

    My Launch.log is attached.

    Thanks for your time and i hope i and those with the same problem face a solution very soon.

  • Run the vcredist_x86_vs2010sp1.exe from C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\chivalrymedievalwarfare\Binaries\RedistChiv.

    Run the DXSETUP.exe from C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\chivalrymedievalwarfare\Binaries\RedistChiv\DXRedistCutdown.

    Attach your DxDialog.txt in a reply here.

  • Apparently i fixed this problem by adding -nomovie to the startup parameters, but i still can’t join any servers, nor create my own or even training.

    The game just freezes and a music starts playing forever :(

    I have no idea where is this DxDialog.txt though.

    Maybe you could help both me and Sparda687, i’m pretty sure we have the same problem.

    Thank you for your attention.

  • To get DxDiag.txt, click on the start menu, type in dxdiag into the search field, open the dxdiag.exe app, let it finish loading, then click Save All Information.

  • Thanks for the help.

    DxDiag.txt is attached.

  • Hi there,

    1. Have you made sure all your graphics drivers are up to date? It says the last date was in October, but check to make sure there wasn’t a new update since then. Then try playing. If not,

    2. Right click on Chiv in your games list, hit properties -> local files > verify game cache. Try again and if not,

    3. Go to My Documents\My Games\Chivalry Medieval Warfare\UDKGame\Config\UDKEngine.ini and delete
      Then try again.

    Then see if you can join any of the servers in this post: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=7082
