Poker Night problems: Black Screen + Broken Menu

posted by TentuZero on - last edited - Viewed by 4.3K users

I launched the game and at the title screen all i see is darkness...I hit play game and i hear it, but there is nothing on the screen...and for some reason when i try to put in windowed mode, it gives me a "must close" error. :mad:

  • @markeres said: OK, I just tried using the program 3danalyze, which some people on other threads were suggesting. I set "force max. pixel shader version 1.4" and I was able to watch the intro video with no problems. However, Tycho appeared completely black and the game crashed just as the actual poker part was about to begin, both things that some other people are reporting happening. Hope this info helps Telltale in any small way.

    Oh my god, thanks. :D I can finally play it, even though Tycho looks like Mr Game and Watch.

    EDIT: Oh wait. I read the "crashed" part then it did the same for me. :p

  • I launched the game and at the title screen all i see is darkness...I hit play game and i hear it, but there is nothing on the screen

  • Hope they'll fix this after Thanksgiving break.

  • Using 3D-Analyze to force the max pixel shader to 1.4, skipping pixel shader 1.4, emulating pixel shader caps, and setting anti-detect mode to shaders, I was able to get a proper Telltale Games start-up logo, and the buttons did appear along with the outside of the inventory. However, once the players place the cash on the table, it crashes. I think it's safe to say that this is an issue with pixel shader support and how the Telltale Engine uses it.

  • I dont think this is a shader issue
    rather a ratio and freq/resolution issue

    how many have wide screen monitors?

    I disabled the monitors wide screen feature.. forcing a resolution not made for this monitor(dont ask)
    and tada.. worked..

    but it miffed just about everything else

    pretty bad release.. rushed and well.. bad

    I have it running on another machine but even that one has issues just not the same ones

    doh!
    I even waited to avoid steam ON PURPOSE as steam is the devil IMO..
    that cloud causes so many problems..
    but this time.. its not the cloud..
    doh x2

    I have a widescreen monitor, and when I tried switching the resolution from 1280x800 to 800x600, it still did not work. did you change anything else, like the refresh rate?

    1024x768
    75hz -changed to 60hz for test
    crt full screen monitor

    black screen/crashes when money is thrown

    the fix your talking about is for ppl that don't crash

  • I'm running the Telltale version, not the steam version. valkysas' fixes won't work for me. I need #2.

    Same here. Well, it was nice seeing the game start up. As for the updating video drivers, setting Steam command line options, and other suggestions, they did nothing to help my game start up. Looking forward to the patch.

  • I am having a similar problem on my mac. I am running the steam version, my screen goes black about 2 seconds into the main screen and I have to hard reset the machine. Here is my crash report:
