So...
Yesterday I decided to launch this game which has been sitting in my library for quite some time.

Love the tutorial, Loved how well it was optimized.

Launched a server game to join.

Got into one and it started auto-downloading Mods. I was quite surprised about that and a bit worried...Normaly the game would ask you if you want to download the mods and or map and leave it to choice. Not just auto Download it.

So I decided what the hell...Got in Game and started playing. Was getting into it when suddenly my screen turned bright orange...thought it was a game glitch or something. So I ended up having to reboot my computer.

Computer turned on and it took no less than maybe 15 seconds after launching for the screen to turn black ( no mouse or anything ). I thought hmmm no problem maybe it's just a Driver Corruption so I did what any normal player would do and re-installed etc.etc. My computer has still been doing the same thing and it all happened after getting those mods downloading from the match I joined.

And yeah I sound like a paranoid nut. But I mean come on...I've played I don't know how many games and not 1 has caused such a bug or problem for me besides this game which I only launched once!.

If anyone has gotten a similar problem please do respond and maybe give some feedback on what to do. ( and for you smart-asses...I'm in Safe Mode with networking since it's the only mode which doesn't bug out or crash on load up ).

If you want to play a non-modded game you should select NS2 instead of all. I never had that problem though.

A mod won't do that. It's just bad timing.

Did you perhaps enable OpenGL as your renderer?
That usually causes non-linux PC's to not run the game at all.

Most mods that are downloaded when you join a server are administration mods that you won't even notice they're there. But there are also some mods which focus on the actual game and which you will be able to notice, they include visual adjustments, gameplay mods.. and so on, what you'd expect from mods.
I've played this game for some time now, and i've had no problems with any mod so far. It's a possibility, but i doubt the mods cause your computer to act like it did.

For the orange screen, there is an in-game mechanic for the alien team to go into that vision, it's turned on when you press F.

I hope this solves your problem, you don't have to tweak any files or re-install anything. there is no solution to your mod problem, until now i've seen only one server without mods. But the mod you download is usually the Shine administration mod, and that counts for almost every server, so once that's downloaded you won't have to update on any new mods for a while.

Mine didn't run when I did it and it forced me to mess with the config.
I would also like to mention my card DOES support OpenGL and I play OpenGL games all the time, but it for some reason doesn't like it on this game.
Nor is it really good for your FPS if you can use DirectX 9 or 11.

Here's a fix FOR THE BLACK SCREEN I found that may help, PLEASE FOLLOW IT IN ORDER, AND REINSTALL DIRECTX EVEN IF YOU HAVE IT:


1) Run dxsetup in drive\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Natural Selection 2\redist\directx\

2) Delete the folder drive\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Natural Selection 2\ns2\shaders

3) Press the Windows key and R (Win+R) and type %APPDATA%\Natural Selection 2 then press enter.

4) Delete all the files in this folder

5) Verify the Integrity of the NS2 Game Cache:
In Steam, go to the Natural Selection 2 menu option, Right-click>Properties>Local Files>Verify Integrity of Cache
(this will re-download the files you deleted, but it will be the correct files this time)

6) It should say when it's complete, boot up the game.

Optional

7) Right click the NS2 exe and set it for Admin Rights.

If that doesn't fix it, please post your Computer Setup, OS with Bit-version, Graphics Card, RAM, etc.

Thanks for the help, But sadly I found what the problem was and it wasn't the game. Turns out the heatsink in my video card was completely defective and burned out the GPU.

Luckily I have a spare video card to use while I get this one replaced.

But thanks for posting this, I'll use it in future reference.
