anyone know how to solve my problem ? The problem started only on the island of Sentinel. Before everything was fine.

Did you install the patch? See the appropriate support page for DKS or FoV.

A similar issue was reported in the topic below, with a couple solutions near the end.

The world wont show


Did you check the topic [PC] Support FAQ - The Dragon Knight Saga?

14/ When I try to play I can only see the interface, the rest of the screen is black.

We are looking into the cause of this problem but so far some customers got helped as follow:

I found a solution. I thought I might share it with you. It's a bit weird but it works.
Go to C:/Users/[usename]/AppData/Local/Divinity 2/Profile
Open "graphicoptions.xml" change the variables ScreenWidth and ScreenHeight.
I change them to ScreenWidth="1440" ScreenHeight="900" and it works.
Changing the resolution in the game menu does nothing and it seems to always come back to 640*480.

Hope this helps you.
If you need more help, please contact support@larian.com

As Raze suggested, you can try any of these solutions:
- lowering settings in general (and resolution)
- using the same desktop resolution as you use in the game
- turning off HDR
- Changing the value of UseDesktopResInFullscreen="1" to 1 or 0, depending what it was and trying again. (this value is located in the file "C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Application Data\Divinity 2\Profile\graphicoptions.xml"
- forcefully changing the resolution in the file mentioned above to the same resolution as your desktop

If these suggestions don't help you, don't hesitate to contact us (support@larian.com).
