Recommended Posts

Launch game , hold alt , hit enter, that fixed it for me.

WOW that fixed it for me so it must be the resolution for it CHEERS MAN! THANKS FOR THE ANSWER

Edit: also found out you can't change resolution back even with alt enter if only goes 640x 480 only and enable fullscreen

I am simply loading the game off of my Chrome Browser. I can see the loading and Don't Starve title until it is completely loaded. Then i just get a black screen with the background music playing.

I can see :

At the bottom of the screen but that is all.

All my drivers are in order.

Making a suggestions list for people, out of things that have worked so far.

1.Uninstall and reinstall google chrome (I was also having black screen issue, this solved it for me)

2.Hold alt, hit enter. (didn't work for me but did for others)

3.Restart computer. (didn't work for me but did for others)

4.Exit out of your browser and start it again (this also worked for me)

5.Complicated shtuff, which hasn't worked for anyone.

Small note about this issue, that I don't think anyone else mentioned. While I was trying to get it to work, I was pressing a ton of buttons. I noticed that when I hit the backspace, a bunch of yellow boxes appeared on the screen, though the black screen still maintained behind the boxes. When clicking on certain boxes, more boxes would appear. I now know that when the game screen actually shows up, this corresponds with clickable boxes within the game (such as play). If you are having the black screen issue, and clicking backspace brings up yellow boxes, one of the methods that worked for me may work for you.

=P

Don't Starve Beta 70388

All my drivers are in order.

The game worked fine during the last release. I haven't modified anything on my computer.

Edit: I've tried everything posted above, no luck. (reinstalled Chrome, disabled all ad blocking software etc. closed and reopened.) Any help?

Hey informer, from what I understand, we should be on version 70528 now. The older version that you apparently still have may be the reason it's not working. I'm not sure why it wouldn't have updated. Try uninstalling Don't Starve, Reinstalling it, closing your browser, reopening it, and then starting the game. Hopefully you version number will be up to date, give it a minute, and hopefully it will load. Personally, I'm still having a black screen issue, but it's progressed to a different form, which I'm about to make an official report on.

Version Number

Issue title

Black screen unless I reopen browser

Steps to reproduce

1. Use chrome browser for anything for a period of time (say, facebook or research or video for an hour).

2. Attempt to open Don't Starve in the browser.

3. Don't Starve permanently pauses load at static.exe with a black background.

4. Exit out of browser entirely (close all windows)

5. Reopen browser, restart don't starve, play, do whatever else you want.

Describe your issue

Currently, if I try to open Don't Starve in Chrome when I have already had the browser open for a while (upwards of 5 minutes), Don't Starve will not completely load and be unplayable. If I exit out of the browser entirely and restart it, I can then start Don't Starve and do whatever else I want on the browser.

While not a complete deal breaker, it certainly is annoying, and I imagine would have to do with some of the other people's black screen issues, which mostly seem to be happening on chrome.

Little extra detail - I usually navigate to the game by clicking on the app button on the new page tab on Chrome. I'll experiment later to see if navigating to it from a different way effects it.

Issue title

NaCl Crash/black screen upon Static.exe/Static.zip

Steps to reproduce

Any time I attempt to run the game this happens.

Describe your issue

It seems to sporadically vary between the NaCl crash and the black screen. The black screen sometimes plays music and sometimes does not.

Special note, I am running the game on a 2008 Macbook. I realize the game is not meant to run on iOS, but it worked just fine on it until this weekend, I played it 4 days ago and it worked. Now it does not.

Here are the notes from chrome://gpu/ :

My software and drivers are all up to date, I have cleared my caches, removed all app. data, uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome, and restarted the computer several times. I have attempted the alt+enter fix, with no luck, and frankly, have tried every fix I have come across, with none being successful as yet.

I am running a 2.4Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo with 2GB of RAM, running OSX Lion. My graphics are as follows: Intel GMA X3100 144 MB

Again, though the game is not meant to run on iOS and though my system specs are on the low side, the game ran fine until some time between today and Wednesday, December 12 (the last time it ran fine).
