[0.17.69] Factorio black screen

Post by AustraliumEngineer »

So, this problem just happened today. I don't know if that's because I've updated my Nvidia to the latest version, but this surely annoys the hell out of me.

The log is located in the attachment.

Quick update

When joining a server or playing in single player, I can run around for about 10 seconds and then the screen of the game turns black. All I can hear is sounds of the wind.

Since nobody is helping me I've decided to try and fix it on my own. I've reinstalled the driver, use the --force-d3d launch option, changed the graphical settings. Nothing works. Please, help me.

Do you really have a GTX 745?
Post a log with the issue while using d3d.

If this was not happening and only started to happen after you updated the graphics driver, the driver is somehow bugged.
There is driver hotfix released yesterday. I'd give it a try. https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers ... /a_id/4876
If it doesn't help, I suggest to use Display Driver Uninstaller (https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/di ... nload.html) to fully uninstall the current driver and install some older version.

It works now. Thank you!
