Issue description
I installed the steam vershion like normal in the program files (note I tried both 32 and 64 bit patches. After instalation clicking the Arx fatalis Icon runs the game but without your patch while cliking the AL (Arx Libertatis)just gives me a black screen. Please tell me what to do if this is a istalation issue (I'll buy the Gog vershion if need be). If it is a bug its a big one.
Steps to reproduce this issue
Buy steam vershion, Install into program files, try to run.

can you please post the arx.log file created by Arx Libertatis? It's located in %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\My Games\Arx Libertatis for Windows XP an in %USERPROFILE%\Saved Games\Arx Libertatis for Vista and later.

Also, try setting framework="SDL" under [window] in cfg.ini (same location) - this will tell AL to use the OpenGL renderer instead of Direct3D. If no cfg.ini file exists, create a new one with the following contents:
  1. [window]
  2. framework="SDL"
Then try starting Arx Libertatis again.

Closing because there has been no response from the reporter.

1.1 will ensure a minimum requested size and use SDL+OpenGL by default, so this problem is likely fixed already.

Also looks like a duplicate of Bug report 445 - Black Screen flashes and terminates immediately.

The issue was updated with the following change(s):
  • The status has been updated, from New to Not a bug.
  • This issue has been closed
  • The resolution has been updated, from Not determined to CAN'T REPRODUCE.
