AquaNox 2: Revelation

AquaNox 2: Revelation

black screen on start fix
Hey guys, just in case anyone just bought this and is having an issue where on load you can hear music, but can't see anything.

Go to your documents folder, usually:

Open the 'AquaNox2' folder
inside you'll see a Config.txt file, edit that, and scroll to the bottom, you'll see the following:

Name = "dsp_height"
Type = "s32"
Value = 480

Name = "dsp_width"
Type = "s32"
Value = 640

replace 480 with your desktop resolutions height (for 1920x1080 enter "1080") then replace 640 with the width (1920)

Save the file, and load the game, should work normally.

For those who don't have the mentioned Config.txt yet because you ended via task manager:

Just start the game and end it via in-game menu. Just listen to the clicking mouseover-sound, move your mouse up a bit then down over where you expect the menu to be and when the clicking stops you're at the bottom of the menu. Move up again until you hear the first sound again and click. That's the exit button and you'll be at the desktop again. The Config.txt file will now be created by the game.

Thank you.
I had this black screen w/ audio on startup as well but fixed it by simply disabling my 2nd monitor from the Nvidia control panel before playing.
Does the cfg edit work with dual moitors and allow you to have both enabled while playing?

edit: This config edit stll gives me a black screen with audio on startup, however, if you use your task manager to "switch to" the program while it's running, it will show the main menu and work fine after that.

I just did Ctrl+Alt+Del and when the menu showed up I just closed it with Esc and the game appeared ^^
Tailbits suggestion worked for me
