Continuous Black Screens

We kindly ask that you complete the questions below. With this information, we can investigate your issue properly.

Issue Description:
Hello, I have continuously black screen at the right time I am in the game, They are not long (5seconds max) but they are repeated.
Let me explain the issue roughly :

  • When I am in the character’s selection menu : NO black screens
  • When I am browsing a merchant menu (Sir Melk or another one) : NO black screens
  • When I go back to my character’s camera, in the main room (after having selected a character) : Black Screens happend
  • When I am in the classic way to play the game (camera mode, not in menu) and I look on the floor on the main big room : NO Black screens
  • In the transport vessel (loading the game), at the end of the speech, few seconds before entering the game : Black Screen
  • At the entering level cinematic : NO black screen
  • When I wander in a level and if I look to a kind of specific texture (may be an animated stuff, I don’t know) : Black Screen.
    It seems to be that a kind of graphical thing make my GTX 1660 Ti having Black Screens, not if it is the GPU or the rendering stuff. But, that graphic stuff that causes black screens can be found in the main big lobby and in levels.

I proceed to an Integrity file check with Steam : all is OK, no errors.
My graphic driver is up to date (I got an GTX 166 Ti).

Thank you for your support,
Best Regards,

hmm, it may be worth trying a clean re-installation of your GPU drivers:

Hello, I will try to do it then I’ll come back to you.

Issue fixed, one game performed, all is ok.
Thank you for your support.

Best regards.
