Game occasionally goes black when alt+tabbing out and into the game
Closed, ResolvedPublic


A couple of times when alt+tabbing out of the game and then going into the game again the entire screen sometimes (rarely) goes entirely black. Curiously this sometimes take a second or so before it happens. The game appears to be running normally and the only problem seems to be that absolutely the entire screen is 100% black but if I remember correctly I was still able to play and pause the game even though everything was black.

It can be worked around by alt+tabbing out and into the game a couple more times.

Please let us know in note section if you are still able to reproduce this issue in latest Development build. We do this on several computers hundred times a day and we never saw this problem before. Try to download latest drivers for you graphic card.

I'm using a GTX 560. I'm pretty sure I heard someone say it was related to the graphics card a while back in which case drivers may solve the problem because I don't think I've been running the latest at all times.

Old issue. Create a new ticket if it still happens.
