black screen on quest start
 
hello!

I experienced this issue the first time while playing (never had a bug before) but I think it prevents me from doing any other quests, cuz I cant complete this one. I'm pretty new to DoF, (I'm still not yet flagged for pvp) but never had a black screen on a NPC-attack. It happens when I want to start the quest "Old scores" from the world map. The scenario is loading, but then it turns all black, however I can still hear music in the background. But I cant do anything else but pressing ALT+F4. It happend every time when doing this quest.

thanks,
bernhard

Have had same thing happen myself,alt f-4 and force closeing dof.exe in task manager has fixed them on relog(few different quests so far)

chat still works,and can hear the background fighting in the ones i had problem with,thinking its just not loading the cinema correctly

hello!

I fixed it by changing some gfx settings. It worked when trying it the 4th time but thanks for the fast reply ;)

which settings did you change if you dont mind ? just in case another is reading with same issue :) if not no worries

devvv 12-26-2011 11:43 AM

Sure, I changed

* Distance from very high to high (now)
* Shadows quality to medium (from high)
* Water quality to medium (now) from high

I'm playing in German language btw, but I dont think that this is something that made this bug occur.

Blank screen on quest
 
Hi All

Have encountered a problem eveytime i attempt to start the quest near Thorndale to become a Knight. When i start it the screen goes black but i can still hear music and still see the chat box.
Slightly annoying cause i was like omg im gonna become a knight but bam computer says no.
Have talked to another guy in -game who has the same problem in the same place.

Thanks for your time

Blade

A few people in chat are having this issue,trying to get people who have this to test it.Also from what i can tell from chat,so far only humans,when I had it week ago was humans as well.

From when it happened to me,and from other peoples descriptions in chat,I think its either failed to load cinema or loading of units improperly causing it.

I think blade just got it to work by dropping a dragon from the army.

As long as we can get a log1.txt posted by someone who had this issue (make sure they take Log1.txt file right after this happens) we should be able to fix this once and for all. As I understand by some reason the hero unit is not spawning and it`s breaking the quest scripting.

Neinth 12-28-2011 01:21 PM

next time i see someone in chat say it,will direct them to post the log1 file :> sometimes that works lol
