Solution for sporadic black screen on Windows 10

Hello!

First time here.... So I also had this annoying problem of having sometimes black screen in BF1942. Either it happened when I wanted to join a game, like when loading the map, or when I wanted to go back to the menu by pressing ESC button. Then i got into research and I think I found the solution for our problem.

Install instructions:

1. Download this package: http://downloads.adolfintel.com/geth.ph … ecommended

2. Extract the content of the ZIP file into your BF1942 root folder.

3. Download this file: http://jrc-core.com/files/BF1942-vista-win7-fix.rar

4. Extract BF1942CF.exe and run it.

5. Disable/Untick all of the compatibilty modes from the BF1942.exe in your root folder.

6. Enjoy playing the game! smile

P.S.: How can I post links?

Hmm, didn't know that. My key for changing camera is C that's probably why I didn't encounter this problem. I tried it myself now and I halso have this issue but unfortunately not a solution sad

Anyhow I'm glad that it solved your black screen issue.

Isn't there an autofunction when you press multiple times Alt or Shift in Windows? I forgot the name, but i deactivated it when this was happening at the beginning with Windows 7.

Just press several times shift or alt, then an small window opens ... And if you found it, search in Inet how to deactivate this. (I really forgot its name.)

Hello enerbliss,

Thank you for sharing the information. You cannot not post links in your first posts because it is a necessary measure to prevent spammers.
I had tried the WineD3D dll files before from http://www.nongnu.org/wined3d/ website, but it crashed the game in one computer and had graphic glitches in another one, so I put it aside. Good to see the project continues and is being updated: http://adolfintel.com/?p=wined3d/index.frag

Intel graphics totally dropped Open GL in there drivers, same with "windows certified drivers" whetever card you had (atleast it used to be like this some years ago, im a bit outdated)

Re: Solution for sporadic black screen on Windows 10

seems like the problem is incompatibility of dx8 with windows 10 so i searched  a little and found below file

found this file on net 
http://enbdev.com/enbconvertor_dx8_dx9_v0036.zip

this one doesnt have alt problem but it has some screen tearing at middle of page + lower graphic resolution

P.S: the screan tearing will be resolved if you download and install the new dx9c from below link but you will still have low resoluotion problem in menu and game texts

The first link does not work for me.

Nothing seems to work for me, even installing the DX9c drivers + the compatibility fix in the first post of the thread. Still get a screen freeze when I press ESC when in game.

Re: Solution for sporadic black screen on Windows 10

Is there any way for you to install a second partition with older OS like win7? I know it sounds awefully stupid (windows, whats in a name) but this is what i do for my older games... mostly i run them in wine or crossover in newest linux version. But with older hardware i have older OS installed aside.


Why Linux?            Best laptops & desktops           Best mobile phone

Yes, but not with newer processors since Kybelake and Ryzen. Intel up to Skylake is ok.

If you wanna make it with newest processors, there is a patch, which surround the UpdateBlock from Microsoft. But how long.... ?


The best is you use a own SSD for this.

Then you set the Windows 7 SSD as primary harddisk and install Windows 7 from USB Stick or DVD. After the installation you set back the Windows 10 Harddisk as primary drive.

Like this it works by choosing the Bootdevice with a F-key when PC is booting up.

But you could also let windows 10 adjust the Bootmanager. Then you can choose the OS just befor Windows starts.

I use 1st methode on one PC and the second on another. But not with Windows 10 involved.

You can find the solutions in Inet...

...

Installing 2 OS on 1 physically harddisk is different. You can make it, but then use this Guide... (Windows 10+7)

Btw. If you install Windows 7, before you make any Updates, install those 3 hotfixes manually. Otherwise the Updatesearch will take days and produces a lot of Memory- and CPU-Power.

I had the blackscreen on Win 8 sometimes, simply alt+tabbed and it seemed to work for me.
