Why is Smash Ultimate Black Screening



yuzu_log.txt (9.1 KB)

So whenever I play Smash Ultimate I constantly get black screens and I don’t know how to fix this. I checked the other posts around this topic and nothing has worked. The game runs surpringly fine once the shaders are loaded but the black screens are really in the way. I read that the game runs better on Vulkan and in general OpenGL just runs poorly with AMD GPUs so I thought to swap it to Vulkan. But when I swap it ti Vulkan the game won’t even boot at all. I’ve updated the drivers on my GPU so it’s not that, I just don’t know how to fix this issue. Can anyone help me out.

You need to update your GPU drivers to get Vulkan working: https://www.amd.com/en/support/apu/amd-ryzen-processors/amd-ryzen-5-desktop-processors-radeon-vega-graphics/amd-ryzen-5-1

Disable async shaders as well once updated to compare.

I Installed those things from the link and I still get the same error and I disabled async shaders and nothing improved.

btw my GPU is an AMD Radeon R9 200 series it was not what the link listed and thus only one of those installers worked in that link you provided.

Did you reboot after installing it? It may be your hardware or driver doesnt support required vulkan extensions.

Yeah I did reboot after installing the drivers . How would I go about checking if my rig meets the vulkan extensions requirements

https://vulkan.gpuinfo.org/ or maybe send screenshot of you running gpu-z.

Seems like AMD released quite the broken driver for those GPUs, which is very sad as it is the last one they get, they are now out of support.
I strongly recommend using Linux, the mesa drivers continue to offer support and are far superior to the Windows ones.
