Yeah same like any game i try to play is just a black screen but i can still hear the music


Yeah, this has to be the update’s fault. I think some error happened when they were coding it. I hope they fix it soon.

Same, literally played perfectly fine yesterday until I updated it. Tried updating all my drivers too but it still doesn’t work. Made my own post as well, but also placing my log here. Thanks!

Hello! I’m experiencing the same problem. I found older forums with the exact same problem too, and they uploaded their log files to ask for help. I’m taking my chances with this thread too.
