Video goes black, then never returns but game still running
Need More Info, WishlistPublic


I have been having an intermittent issues with the graphics part of the game crashing. My friends who are with me say that my character is still there in the game, but all I can see is the Windows desktop. The game is still running and I have to use the task manager to end it.

I have had this happen when running from zombies several times, but it also has happened when I was looking through my inventory and seemingly random other times. I wish I could give you more information, but the game doesn't actually crash so I don't think there is a crash report generated.

I have tried changing video settings with no change. Sometimes I can go hours without a crash, other times it happens every few minutes.
