Game keeps giving me a black screen in build mode

Post by pinkscream on Sat 13 Sep 2014, 12:31

[ltr]The game was FINALLY working perfectly last night.However this morning it would not launch so I re-cracked it using the 3DMGAME v6 crack. Now it works fine but every time I try to change patterns of walls, floors, or foundations or even just placing doors I get a black screen. If I try to go to desktop and then back into the game it goes into a black screen if I click just anything. I've already tried deleting all saved games and starting fresh but the same thing happens. Please help! Help [/ltr]

//EDIT

never mind I fixed it. If anyone else is having this bug it can be fixed by changed the resolution to 1280x800 as long as you are in build mode. once you're done switch to live mode and change the resolution back if you want.

I had that problem too, but I fixed it by changing the compatibility of The.Sims.4.Launcher.exe and TS4.exe to windows 7 not the suggested windows XP(service pack 3). It's worked perfectly since then. Smile

Hello pinkscream,

I don't get that "glitch". However, I get the "unrecognized video card" pop-up upon the first startup of the game. Razz  That said, by default, my video settings are all on high or very high, so my video card is more than capable of handling the game.

Out of curiosity (if you want to share this here), what is the graphics card you are using ? Smile  And what about the drivers...are they up-to-date ?  If you still keep getting that "glitch" no matter what, you might lower your resolution straight away to 1280 x 800...

I got it from piratebay but of course there is a TON of non-working torrents there too. My graphics card is Raedon280x and the drivers are up to date. 1280x800 looks too big to actually play this way so I only use it for build mode.
thnx for the windows 7 tip, I'll try it now.

Changing the compatibility to windows 7 did the trick

Interesting, since I didn't have to change my compatibility settings either, but OK. Razz  Do keep us posted, if you want. Smile
