So the 21st November 2014 is upon us and millions of hungry Dragon age fans have descended upon the origin server for its launch, but there has been some hiccups with the release of the smash-hit title on PC.
I have been eagerly awaiting this title since playing the other two instalments and also after playing it at Euro Gamer Expo (EGX) in London earlier this year, I have been to the supermarket, stocked up on Redbull, got a box of Twinkies and a packet of 20 cigarettes all in an effort to stay as glued to my screen as possible but already I am finding it hard to do that with several bugs and issues even getting the options menu.
Dragon Age Players Facing Black Screen
The first thing I and many other players have encountered so far, especially those of us using Windows 8 is the inability to get the game to load correctly.
Upon loading the game, I was greeted with sound and a maximised window complete with a toolbar that you have guessed it is black.
How do you fix Dragon Age Inquisition Blackscreen?
I tried various things such as reinstalling the latest graphics drivers, messing with the options and nothing worked until I set the game in compatibility mode.
- Navigate to: c:Program Files(x86)Origin Games/Dragon Age Inquisition
- Right click ‘DragonAgeInquisition.exe’ and click properties
- Click the compatibility tab
- Check ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and then select Windows 7 from the dropdown
- Hit apply and close the window
If you now open up DragonAgeInquisition.exe the game should now load without any issues at all.
