The Settlers 4: Black screen while videos/intro is playing

Post by FireEmerald » October 1st, 2016, 8:05 am

Hey,

i added the Exe\S4_Main.exe inside of the DXGL Config using the following settings:

If i start now The Settlers 4 the game is running as intended, but if a video is played (like the intro) i hear the music but there's no image - just a black screen.

Any ideas how to resolve this problem :?:

Greetings,
FireEmerald

Does this occur with the English GOG.com version of Settlers 4?
Have you tried setting the Fullscreen window mode to non-exclusive fullscreen?

Please note that the current DXGL graphics engine is now in the early stages of being replaced with a new, more efficient graphics engine.

It's not the GOG.com version of the game it's the Settlers 4 Gold version. Exactly: The Settlers IV V2.50.1508 (Production build 11251228)

And yes, i tried to set the Fullscreen window mode to Non-exclusive fullscreen:

Go right ahead and drop a bug report at https://www.dxgl.info/bugzilla/ and I will get to it eventually (I am currently rewriting the entire rendering backend).
