I am playing this game and it has shut down the computer a few times but I was able to start it up again. Now I am in the nursery with Baby Alys and after the house flies apart I get a black screen at the scene change and a message the game has stopped. I did try with the resolution turned down as it seemed to work for one player. Checking the Steam community, there seems to be a large number of players getting a black screen and no solution. I haven't had much luck with games lately.

Googling this issue shows me that a lot of players have had issues such as this. I also saw a variety of proposed solutions, but no idea whether any of them would work for you or not. I even saw some discussion of this on YouTube.

I would have no idea what to try other than experimenting with possible solutions seen on forums and such.

Let's see if anyone else has something useful to offer about this.

Thanks Marian. I'll do more checking including Youtube.

Checking Youtube paid off. A player said he was successful by verifying files. I did so and several files were missing and now reacquired. I played the game for a while before the computer shut down again. I've been able to get past that before so I will play on hopefully.

Sorry, I'm late to the party! Glad your Youtube search found a solution for you. I've played the game twice and never had any issues. Since this game is being offered for free at Epic Games and is on sale at GOG, I have a feeling a lot more people are going to be playing it, so I'm going to link to the verify files solution. Hope the game doesn't glitch for you any more!

Glad it worked out, Pokey. I hope the game runs smoothly for you from here on out.

I played more than an hour last night with no problem. I got lost in the caves and checked a video to find the way. I was close to the exit and saw that there was a colorful sunset outside in the video. When I actually exited, the sky had no sunset--no color at all. I checked other videos, some not on PC. All had a sunset. I don't know how to correct this. Any ideas?


Edit: The game came out nearly two years ago and I read that the developers made changes. Maybe that was one.

Pokey, if you got it from GOG, all the updates from the developers should have been applied. Do you have enough video card to play this game with all the graphic effects? I'm sure you've told me before what your computer specs are, but if you did, I forget!

Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 or AMD Radeon HD 5750 or Intel HD Graphics 630

I never considered that my video card may not good enough. I still have the GTX 660ti though I have planned to upgrade soon. I have not played any new games with high requirements in quite a while.

Your 660 Ti should be more than enough for this game. I loved my 660 Ti and only upgraded from it about a year and a half ago! But you said you reduced some of the graphics options thinking that might help your black screen problem. Once you fixed that, did you put the graphics back?

I only reduced the resolution and put it back. I loved the 660 ti too. It served me well for many years. I took another look at the sky and what I saw was the dim sun in a small patch of blue sky. No red-gold color at all.
The sunset is not important. I was curious what might have caused it. I haven't seen anything like that in games I've played recently.


I found this on Youtube, might help with the black screen:
