So yeah, I have no clue what's causing it. I did a clean download and I still have the same problem.

I assume your starting position is in an empty blank map. You can change this by right-clicking on the map you want to start the player in and choosing the Set as Starting Position. If this isn't the case, we'll need more details~

Ummm, no. I start in an actual map, I just can't see anything, the sound plays and all but I just get a black screen.

This happens when you should be getting the title screen? Even during a completely fresh install with just tinkering on the map?

I'm assuming you don't have any scripts installed. Strange issue, I'll tell you right now though that it isn't Windows 8, I'm using it in Windows 8 as we speak. It could be a driver issue

Yup, strange indeed. I'm running 8.1 and it was working a few weeks ago, now that's all I get. Imma update my driver and see what happens.

RMMV
does this happen with a new project?


Usually this happens if a script breaks the game setup before the title screen is displayed. And it should make no difference on the driver, because the default engine uses the same display functions as the desktop.


I suggest activating the console window before starting playtest (that's an option in the game menu) and check if something is reported there.

Pretend you were telling, reading, or listening to a very serious, slightly scary story about witches. Would a witch doing the stereotypical flying on a broomstick thing ruin the mood?
