Alt-Tab or closing the game results in blackscreen

Discussion in 'General Technical Support' started by Sdragoner, Nov 24, 2012.

  1. First time I launch the game for 4-5h and I can alt tab with no problems or close the game. Now without changing any drivers or patching windows the game results in blackscreen when I tab out or want to close the game and I cant do anything than. Pc must be reboot to do any action. I can hear whats going on in the game but I cant do anything, I even can hear teammates via com but cant answer. Whats is this?

  2. I like the SOE support so far , I don't get a mail for that(soe PS2 technical email support). I would get tons of mails from other free 2 play games and oh wait I have buy stuff for this game, so I am actually a customer who dafuq are working here in the support forum or soe support? No one or what?
  3. Are you running fullscreen windowed or fullscreen? I have windowed mode for the purpose of alt tabbing easily.
  4. Fullscreen and I CANT change because it result in blackscreen. I don't know where I can change the option out of the game. I am sure that it will work in windowed mode but I am not able to change it in game.
  5. I was gonna say probably low PC specs but thats not the case.. :p
  6. ya to bad it had nothing to do with to low pc specs.
  7. I'll go into my .ini file tonight and see which option shows fullscreen windowed. Will post here once I find it. Should be the good work around.
  8. Thanks man, after a bit research I found the Useroptions and change it there to Windowed and this works, the game will crash after I will close the windows but I dont care for that because I don't must reboot but it is still funny that I don't get something from the SOE support, no mail or notification.
  9. My ini file looks like this. Check the two red items
    [Display]
    FullscreenRefresh=0
    Maximized=0
    FullscreenWidth=1920
