Black screen upon start-up of Rising storm/ RO2
I recently purcahsed Rising Storm, and whenever i attempt to start the game it goes to black screen and nothing. The intro movies play, and right after the main RO2 title is displayed, it promptly goes to black screen. I've played the normal game before without any problems. I've updated my drivers, messed wit hthe 3d management settings in the nvidia control panel, starting it in windowed mode, starting it with no intro movies, and nothing seems to be working. Any and all help would be much appreciated.

I have the same issue, black screen immediately upon start up, where I assume the main menu should display. If anyone has any fix, please post.

Try updating you GPU driver.

Both OP and I have updated our drivers already. Anything else?

Is the main menu music playing at the black screen? If so, then the game's resolution is set too high.

To lower the resolution, do this:
Press ~ or F3 in order to open up the console and then type in:
setres 800x600

You can replace 800x600 with your desired resolution. Then, press enter. Since the screen is black, you won't be able to see what you're typing so make sure you do so perfectly.

The other option would be to go to your DOCUMENTS folder and find:
Documents\My Games\RedOrchestra2
Just delete that entire folder and reboot the game.

Thanks a lot for the advice! But apparently the correct remedy was restarting my system. So... this is kind of embarrassing...

I would really like to know why your system did that.. and esp why the restart solved it.

Actually i have the same issue but i bought the whole pack and i was wondering if it could be that i dont have singleplayer or beta installed so do i need them to run the game?
Moskeeto Jul 31, 2013 @ 5:40pm 
No. There is no need to have single player or beta installed.

A quasi-reliable fix seems to be updating your graphics drivers and then restarting your computer. Not guarenteed, but it worked for OP. Best of luck, everyone.

picked this up on the steam sale - every time i launch i get a black screen. if i click on the application on the task bar it black screens both monitors, shows a distorted resolution and then drops back out.

i am running 2 monitors of different size but only want it to display on my 1080p primary monitor.

Quick fix for this gents,
run your game in windowed mode.

Go into your launch settings in steam, set the parameter to -windowed
apply and start game. Should launch every single time now.

Cheers!
