Whenever I try to enter the Engwithan Digsite Arena Sub-level the game will try to load the area for a short while, but eventually get stuck on a black screen showing only the cursor. When this happens I am unable to quit the game or force the application to close via task manager and need to restart my PC.

 

This dropbox link contains my savefile and below are the output and DxDiag logs.

Edit: Nevermind, it just loaded; I have NO idea why.

I'm having this same issue (though thankfully, forcing the application to close works for me). Every other area transition, even within the Engwithan Dig Site, works fine. It's only the Arena Sub-Level that refuses to work. And since I think you have to go there to progress, I hope there's either a reliable workaround, or this gets patched fairly quickly.

Just to be sure, I re-installed the game, but that didn't help either.

Seems I'm not the only one receiving this bug. Happened to me twice now despite verifying cache and restarting my save file from the beginning.

 

EDIT: Alright, I found a workaround for now. Lowered my graphical settings to low and it let me transition into the level.

Did you turn off vsync?

I'm having the same issue. Reinstalled the game, turned all my graphics settings to low, and still the engwithan arena sublevel does not load when I enter it. I get the black screen, the cursor loads, music cuts out, and I have to hard reset my computer (I can get the task manager to pop up, but it also freezes instantly.) 

 

I even tried going into the sublevel without Aloth (I figured fewer characters = fewer things to process = success??) but it still crashes.

 

I can also go into the other areas in the digsite, as well as other places on the world map / port maje (loading times are slow, but not deal-breaking, and no crashes).

 

I'm using the GOG Galaxy version

 

and I am a little sad because Aloth's my fav, so it sucks to have the game blow up right when I recruit him :( blah

Try turning off v sync, haven't had any trouble after turning it off

I am also seeing this issue, same hang even with all graphics options turned off. I am running in full screen mode if that matters. About the only thing I can add is that you should be able to sign out of the desktop (log off your current user) to clear things up - still annoying, but not as disruptive as doing a soft or hard reboot. I am using the steam version.

 

I have a save file that I can put up on the net somewhere if those investigating the bug need more info.

I am seeing this exact same issue. Only freezes in the Arena Sub-level and no where else. Music stops and it's just a black screen. Really frustrating as I don't want to reroll and have the same problem again. Have tried lowest graphics settings and multiple installs.

Having the same issue myself. My graphics settings are already as low as possible, so I tried turning off vsync, and setting multisamping to 0 in the registry but that didn't work at all.

 

Linking my save file just in case though I suspect it's engine related more than save-related. https://drive.google...ALvLanHDQolrx5d

I was having a similar issue. I couldn't enter any area from the arena (Luminous Adra Pool, Foreman's Quarters, etc.) -- I got a load screen for a few seconds and then a message that the game had crashed. I lowered the graphics quality and turned off vsync, which didn't help. But I uninstalled and reinstalled and now it's working.

I made a post on this not realizing this topic was already made. But to add to this: it’s only the Arena Sub-Level that is giving us problems (although I fear this problem may reoccur somewhere else. We just don’t know because we can’t get any further).

I have to ctrl+alt+delete to get myself out of the black screen. Luckily that’s an option for me considering people have to hard reset their computers instead.

I really hope this gets fixed soon. I haven’t really been able to play since launch day because of this. :/

Yep same issue. Everything else working fine. Only this area and can't find a work around. Already running on lowest settings. Running on a Mac. Game breaking bug!

FIXED. Turned graphics to lowest, VSync off and set MSAA samples to four. Worked fine.
