Can play SG: Survivor but not SG

Postby fruki » Sat Jun 04, 2011 2:52 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm becoming a fan of FB and I recently bought the frozen bundle.

The problem I have is that I can play ShadowGrounds: Survivor (on very high specs) but I'm not able to play ShadowGrounds.

Whenever I start the game, the FB logo movie plays and then it just hangs showing a black screen. I can see the mouse cursor and I can move it but nothing else. I have to ALT+F4 to get out of it.

Windows 7, GTX 280.

Thank you!

Sounds strange. First thing to do is a restart of the computer, just in case.

Next, I'd simply try re-downloading the game. It sounds like some of the data might be corrupt, perhaps.

Also try skipping the intro videos with ESC (and/or disable all videos in the Launcher). Also turn all the settings to the lowest possible in the Launcher, and untick Fullscreen.

Let me know if any of these helps.
