Hi,

 

I'm on Mac OSX. Character creation is smooth as a whistle, then I click Done/ Accept and it takes me to a black screen with only ambient noise, music and the hand cursor. I've tried in a different resolution and in windowed mode, no cigar. I'm going to keep trying to disable graphics options, as I assume it is related, but this is deeply frustrating - if someone has a solution I'd be very grateful!

I'm running into the same issue.  I'm on a ~ 1 year old Macbook with a 2GB Nvidia 750M running OSX 10.10.1.  The app plays sounds, and the app cursor is still visible, but after hitting Done to accept my character and start the game, I just get a flat black screen forever.  I have to force quit the app to get it to close.  I tried lower resolution and switching to windowed mode, same symptom.

Hi,

 

Exact same problem here except that I'm playing on a PC computer and I use a 4K monitor, in native resolution.

It might be related to the high resolutions ?

 

Regards,

Nah, I lowered the resolution to the most basic settings ever and it still failed to run. I even redownloaded the whole game to install again (the fortune of a fast internet) but still the same problem. I ended up installing it via Bootcamp onto Windows and now it runs beautifully. This is definitely an issue they need to resolve though. Seems like a lot of other folks having a mix of similar issues over on this thread: http://forums.obsidi...raphics-problem

 

I should stress that my own issue had nothing to do with secondary monitors and displays though...

I'm still seeing this.  I've tried attaching Player.log, but hit an error with both the advanced and basic uploaders.  Here's the end of the log:
