[SOLVED] Black screen and crash at launch


When I start the game, a black screen appears, my computer freezes, and I can't ctrl+alt+del, I have to reboot it.

I found this thread from someone who had the same problem, and fixed it, but he doesn't really explain how he did it.

So, help! Smile

Thanks in advance.


What's your OS? Can you try running Xonotic in windowed mode? You can do this by either passing +vid_fullscreen 0 as option to the executable, or adding set vid_fullscreen to either config.cfg or autoexec.cfg in your data directory.

Thanks, adding "+vid_fullscreen 0" worked.

Now you should try to set the right resolution for your display and give fullscreen a try, it might work!

What is your OS?
