Black Screen After Character Selection
Hi guys, I've already posted a discussion about this issue, however no one could give me a helping hand. I start the game, after I select or import a character, my screen goes completely black. No sound, no character introduction, nothing. I tried almost everything; reinstalled the game, ran in admin, drivers updated, -nologos is enabled, directx is up to date, I disabled every autorun in MSCONFIG, VSync is off, everything. I still suffer this issue. Please help me guys I really want to play this game. Thank you.

If I could understand what is wrong with my computer, I would definitely made some changes.

Well for one thing, posting your pc specs would be helpful.

Right click on your game in steam, select Properties. Go to the Local Files tab. Verify integrity of game cache. If it downloads anything, restart steam afterwards.

When was the last time you updated your video card drivers? Have you defragged your hard drive recently? How long has it been since you did a fresh install of windows?

my video card drivers are up to date, I updated them 2 days ago, no I didn't defrag my hard drive. I didn't refresh my windows since I bought this computer.

I Know right this is pretty unexcuseable, Paid for it fully knowing my computer specs pass minimum requirements to play and I cannot even play past character selection screen
