Hi, a buddy of mine also bought the game and is kind of enraged by now (which is why it is me writing this post) as his game doesnt load properly, but becomes black, only the ingame cursor is to see and then he cant do anything.

Would be nice if you could get a solution for it.

Just to be clear, the screen becomes black and stays so for 5 or more minutes? Do any of the logo screens load?


Unless otherwise specified, just an opinion or simple curiosity.

Try lowering the resolution or starting the game in a window.


[FAQ] Troubleshooting Dragon Commander & support



You can manually set the resolution by editing the graphicsettings.lsx file in Wordpad, or other text editor, located in the folder:

C:/Users/ %username% /My Documents/Larian Studios/Dragon Commander

Look for the section

<node id="ConfigEntry">
<attribute id="MapKey" value="ScreenHeight" type="22" />
<attribute id="Type" value="0" type="5" />
<attribute id="Value" value="768" type="4" />
</node>
<node id="ConfigEntry">
<attribute id="MapKey" value="ScreenWidth" type="22" />
<attribute id="Type" value="0" type="5" />
<attribute id="Value" value="1024" type="4" />
</node>



Search for 'fake' near the start of the file to set the display mode (if both FakeFullscreen and Fullscreen are set to zero, it will be in Window mode).

<node id="ConfigEntry">
<attribute id="MapKey" value="FakeFullscreenEnabled" type="22" />
<attribute id="Type" value="0" type="5" />
<attribute id="Value" value="0" type="4" />
</node>
<node id="ConfigEntry">
<attribute id="MapKey" value="FrameCapFPS" type="22" />
<attribute id="Type" value="0" type="5" />
<attribute id="Value" value="60" type="4" />
</node>
<node id="ConfigEntry">
<attribute id="MapKey" value="Fullscreen" type="22" />
<attribute id="Type" value="0" type="5" />
<attribute id="Value" value="1" type="4" />
</node>

Well, it stays black, but he has the ingame cursor moving and all. Raze's solution doesnt work at all, stays all the same, no change at all.

Edit: It works, he had to disable the firewall

Did he just have to disable it the first time, or did he have to specifically set the firewall to allow/ignore the game?

For other games I've seen reports of firewalls opening windows behind games and automatically closing them with the game, so you need to alt-tab out of the game to even notice the firewall is prompting to allow or disable access. Depending on if he tried window made and what resolution, he may have noticed that for Dragon Commander, though.
