Hi guys. I have a problem..

After a long time I installed the game and some mods.. I had mods before too, but  I never had a problem. Now i have a problem that, when i launch game, everything is ok, I can easily create a character, but when i start the game, when the story begins, i can hear storyteller (narrator), i see subtitles, but all is in black screen..No image...This happens only when i start playing as Cousland. When i start playind as Mage ro Dwarf everything is ok.. I tried to delete mods, one by one, to find out which mode is problematic, but no change so I did not find the answer..where the problem might be?

This is my mode list..

Thank you som much for your help!

Well, maybe the mods are incompatible and/or broke the game, same prob with a clean install of dao?

Would also check the mod pages for patches and/or compatibility.

 

 

Hmm, anything else, well Is everything up2date, like directx(from the game folder), gpu driver, the game, windows?

Possible gpu driver related, would try it. Current version and older one.

*if u wanna install older drivers, download whql not beta drivers.

 

Had a similar problem, caused by an windows update, black screen in few "older" games, had to reinstall the nvidia driver.

 

Or maybe u need to downgrade the game version for mods.

 

Also worth a try, changing the settings.

Like changing the resolution, for some reason u could fix dao black screens with changing the resolution to the highest.

Different directx modes (if dao has different)

Delete the ini and let dao create a new one.

 

Any background overclocking apps like msi afterburner or so?

 

 

Ooff, sry I'm out of ideas now.

Thank you so much! I have a new laptop and i keep all updated..I regularly check it and I do not think it's a problem with the drivers because i have black screen or crash game only if i start game like a Cousland  noble.. If i start like a dwarf or mage, the game works. downgrade the game version is good idea i guess, i can try it. About resolution i have highest resolution.. so.. i dont know.. No MSI afterburner no just dragon center and MSI True color..maybe is really problem with mods compatibility ......

I have solved a mystery, maybe someone will help in the future :laugh:

if you want to use mods Improved atmosphere + Of Ferelden, you can not use other mods which contain any morphs changes.. For example RDP Alistar, Electrifys Wynne v1 etc etc..it's not even good to use mods that can change for example lighting and other graphic things..

I don't know if you ever figured this out or not but I just discovered the same issue and resolved it by getting rid of the JB3 texture packs.

I've had the same issue for ages now, I don't even have improved atmosphere or JB3 textures installed and it still gives me the black f***ing screen. I've spent hours trying different methods and nothing works. 

PS - it's nothing to do with my system, it can play gta 5 on max graphics i know it can easily handle DA Origins lol.
