View Full Version : Black screen bug
01-19-2012, 02:00 PM
ok now i read in the patch notes the black screen bug was fixed
now before that patch i never had any black screens so i had no idea what it was
but now im on this quest called into the swamps
and every time i enter it i get a black screen
im guessing its the cut-scene bugging up
now is there any way to get around it ? because... id like to continue the human storyline
the rly strange bit of all this is that i started the quest before the bugfixing patch and tried it once
i failed cuz i brought the wrong army composition (but never got any black screens)
and now after the patch iv tried multiple times... but no success black screen all the way!

I hate to confirm it - but yes, our fix didn`t work. This bug seems to happen at random.
The only way we know around this - is try to take fewer troops on a quest with you. This usually helps. Or try taking other type of troops with you - play with army composition.
We WILL fix this in the next patch for good...I hope:)

well i managed to get in with just my hero :P
some others were trying to get in aswell with me and they managed to get around 5 troops in
now i did notice some lag at the beginning of the cut-scene
its just a wild assumption but maybe cuz of army spawning / cut-scene of a keep stuffed with orcs makes the cut-scene freeze up
either way it seems related to the lil cut-scene since quests without one function fine
then again i know nothing :P

ok now i did some more experimentation with the black screen
i got some other info from a other player who managed to get 5 troops inside (all knight)
now for me the blackscreen only happens when i:
-do a storyline mission with a cutscene at start
-take more then a surtain amount of troops
iv tested taking diff types of armys composed out of 2 types of units 12/12 troops
-any combination of the following units "knight / swordsman / xbowman / bowman = blackscreen
iv tested only taking 5/12 troops and take 1 of each of the following
-knight / swordsman / xbowman / bowman = works
now when it did work i did notice a lil lag at the very start of the cutscene
sofar it happened on these 2 quests for the humans:
-into the swamp
-matters of the heart
thats all the info i gathered hope it helps

Selridion - your the best! Your info just helped us solve the bug for good!!! It`ll be in the next patch.
Basically what happens - when scenario starts we spawn one of your units every 0.5 seconds. So 5 units would take 2.5 seconds to spawn, and 12 units would take 6 seconds to spawn. And hero is the last unit to spawn. However - at 3 seconds into the game Cinematic sends a request for the hero to do stuff - but since the hero is not present in the scenario yet (still waiting to get spawned) it errors out.
