    Hi there,

    several days ago I wanted to start rfactor 2 again and have some nice races against the AI but the loading procedure got stuck right at the beginning with a black screen. This never happened before. So first I did an integrity check via steam – didn’t work. After that I uninstalled everything (also deleted the remaining folders manually after the uninstall) and installed it again – still not working.

    Now I'm really out of ideas. :sick:

    One thing that could have happened is that your graphics driver updated itself. Sometimes this changes the way the chosen video configuration works and if that is the case, rFactor 2 fails to launch. You might want to fire up the video resolution configuration, confirm your settings there and try again.

    I can launch in Dev mode, but the normal mode doesn't work. I just hear the sounds from the menu, but the screen is black.

    Cannot remember that my driver updated itself. Also tried several settings in the video configuration of rfactor 2 but i have no luck. :sick:

    If you are using multiview switch it off, I have the same problem but only in devmode.

    EDIT: Sorry, ehm not exactly the same problem, I can see the menu but when I jump to race and cockpitview it is just black. So not sure if this helps you.

    Dev and normal mode have separate video settings!
