OS X: Black screen. resolution switching, and external display issues

Posted by Darren Monahan , in Macintosh OS X 02 April 2015 · 11981 views

os x black screen resolution external display pillars of eternity
A number of users have reported they are seeing black screens when playing the game, usually when switching resolutions, or toggling between windowed mode and full screen. We've also had reports of similar behavior when trying to use external displays.

We've looked into this issue extensively on our end, and we've found a reproducible case within the engine and have sent it off to the folks at Unity to investigate further.

In the meantime as a workaround, you can generally press Command-F to get yourself into a state where you can save your game, quit, and restart. Pressing Command-F toggles between windowed mode and fullscreen (and back if you press it again).

Pending fix in version: Unknown

Any update on this? Is there a link to a unity issue we can see?

Still no fullscreen working on Mac with latest patch.

Fullscreen not working for me on Mac with latest patch either.  Cmd + F just makes the screen flicker, doesn't switch to windowed mode.  Late 2013 MacBook Pro using a Dell external monitor connected via DisplayPort, but it's my primary monitor (macbook lid is closed).

It sounds like this topic is about many different issues. But for those of you having the issue of the screen being solid black on game launch and Cmnd+F not working this is what you can do:


The funny thing is Wasteland 2 is a unity engine game and has no issues displaying fullscreen.

This is unacceptable and I'm really disappointed.

I also would like to have an update on this. It is a really annoying bug.

The latest update seems to have fixed this for me,thanks!

As frustrating as the wait has been, this is now working for me too. LG Ultrawide at 3440x1440 running with no problems in full screen.


I would suggest someone updates the main post content to include the fix version as it still says "Pending".
