View Full Version : Radeon 9600/PC -- no display/garbled artifacts

When I start the game, the two logo screens come up fine, then Atrus' letter.

But once the game gets to the menu, everything goes black, and I can only tell what the mouse is over because the only thing that is displayed is the hints.

When I click on game options, I see the animation of the page turning, which works perfectly, then the screen goes black again, save for the menu hints.

When I wander around and go into the game itself, the screen is black, and I see the bottom icons, and that's it.

I have to CTRL+ALT+DEL to get out of the game.

I updated my drivers to the latest Catalyst version, which included uninstalling the previous ones fully, rebooting, installing the new version, rebooting.

DirectX 9 is showing no errors with it's diagnosis.

The music is great tho :P

Anyone have any ideas?

For the thrill of giggles, try the Omega drivers?

There's also a list of different driver changes you can make to the catalyst settings that might affect this. Heimdall G is the one that knows that information.
