Black Screen Problem
ZC2 loads up as normal, but when it gets to the title screen, it goes black.

Specs:

3GB RAM DDR2
Nvidia Quadro FX 3450 / 4000 SDI
Intel Core Duo 1.82 GHz

It's worth mentioning that I haven't updated my video card driver (as it conflicts with Source games), but even though it's updated, it still does this.

Another thing I need to add is that I used to play Blacklight Retribution, which (i think) runs on Unreal 3, just like ZC2 and had no problems with it.

When you say title screen do you mean the main menu?

Yes, I'm talking about the main menu. I managed to get rid of the black screen but it was the type of thing that only happens on a Friday the 13th during a blue moon when all the planets align.

So yeah, still having the issue.

So it worked briefly but you have the problem again?

By briefly I mean that it worked fine, in-game too, until I closed the game and ran it for the second time.

do you have low level access granted to any overclocking or monitoring software?

have you recently installed or activated overlays such as steam's in-game features or shader injectors?

did the black screen ever appear before the rock of ages update or was it only afterwards?

one thing you could try is deleting your zc2 config folder under "my documents" to initialize the whole thing. since you are pointing out that the problem occurs inconsistently i lean towards the likelihood another process is subverting your game.

fyi, blacklight retribution indeed uses EU3, however, its dated version is different than what ZC2 sits upon. id wager the engine has no relevance to the black screen or its trigger.
