Hi all,

been wanting to play this game for a while now but have a problem.
when i start the game, i have no visuals... only audio.
i cannot see the menu screen but i can hear it

i am using windows 8.1 pro x64
intel 3610qm processor
nvidia gt 630m graphics card (using direct x 11 and latest drivers)
8gb ram

i have no idea why this is happening but i also know (looking at the steam tech support forums) that im not the only one with this problem.
is there any fix that i can do to make this game work?

Hi there

Okay something to try quickly.. Try pressing Alt and Enter when you hear the game.. this will put it into windowed mode, let me know if that helps to get past the black screen

Funnily enough. that fixes the problem.
have to play in windowed mode but thats ok :)

Thanks!

*EDIT*
i have just tested a program i have used in the past that allows you to run windowed mode "full screen"
using this: https://github.com/Codeusa/Borderless-Gaming/releases/tag/6.5 i can play using the game set in windowed mode but it still shows the game as if it's running in full screen

Start the game

run Borderless Gaming, Select LC2 and press the highlighted button

now you're running full screen (but still windowed)
below shows the game is not in fullscreen mode (because i had the black screen like everyone else)
