Help- Broken Game?
So, I downloaded Alien Swarm and I open it for the first time and I get into the loading screen to go into a mission and once its finished loading, theres a black Screen. This persists until a sound loop comes in and the black screen starts flashing once in a while. Please Help. All Comments are appretiated

I have some issues with ASW when alt_tabbing to desktop. It doesn't crash, but the screen goes black and I'm in limbo for 20 seconds before it restores.

Is your PC able to run other Valve games ok ?

Try running the game in -window mode see if it helps.

Yeah I can Run other Valve games fine.

I thought you meant the Resolution in the game. My desktop is 1366x768

that's the problem. asw doesn't work well with that native resolution, while using ingame resolution with different aspect ratio. to fix, change ur ingame resolution to ur native one.

btw, what's ur gpu anyway?
