    PC Issues (Black Screen)

    I got AW on steam and Installed and started it up.

    Everything maxed out.

    The problems started when I get a black screen when every so often. I can still move, and I can see lights and lit objects. When I alt tab, it fixes and then breaks about 30 seconds later.


    I doubts it is hardware issue, but maybe

    Specs: (overkill, I know)

    Intel Core i7 3960x @5.0ghz

    16gb 1600mhz ram

    3 Way SLI GTX 580s (EVGA)

    Does anyone know a fix for this? Or why this is caused.

    This sounds like the game's (dynamic) auto exposure system gets somewhat confused by something being VERY bright in the image (so the auto exposure system kicks most things to be very dark).

    The exposure gets adjusted dynamically for each frame (based on the previous frame) so it sounds like somehow there's a "bad" frame rendered every now and then.

    I don't really have much idea what could be causing this other than the GPU going haywire due to overclocking (sometimes GPUs are factory overclocked) or a driver issue.

    Well this happened to me, exactly in the same place. I managed to fix it.
    Are you by chance using a xpadder or similar to emulate a joystick? If you are, this seems to be whats causing the problem, at least for me. When i use a joystick and xpadder to play it, i always get stuck, but when i just use to keyboard and mouse, the game runs perfectly fine.

    Sorry to maybe necro this thread but my ATI 5770 is not overclocked whatsoever, and in fact, I just beat the entire game a day ago. I started a new game, had the cutscene after starting the cabin generator, and the screen was all black. I fumbled in t he dark until I saw a window. I entered the cabin, which appeared to be lit normally, and muddled through the next bit. When the game loaded the next sequence, after the dummy spit by Alan, the game wasn't black anymore.

    Believe him, cause It's true. I already have proven it.

    My card runs at stock clocks. All of them. Nothing in my machine is overclocked as it stands now. Nothing. The i7 is back at stock. Nothing works.

    So I disabled SLI, and it did not work. I Removed the two cards leaving only one.
    Nothing.

    We are investigating - Have you tried disabling SLI? We are working on the SLI support but it's not there quite yet.
