Screen goes black

Recommended Posts

Periodically the screen keeps going black, not even a shift ctrl windows b works.. It is project zomboid app that causes it. If i somehow manage to ctrl alt del a log off by estimated my mouse location, the screen returns as soon as zomboid shuts down. Ive checked logs and i cannot see anything? 

This results in multiple saves messing up as i have to quit for my actions to register.

Is there anything i can do too help remedy this issue?

Thanks

Have you tried switching the game to borderless or windowed mode to see if it happens there as well? I assume it could be a problem with the game being fullscreen and perhaps the monitor itself having a weird refresh rate.

Thank you for the SOUND! advice. i was literally going to say i have changed it to windowed mode and its been fine! I think its possibly something to do with windows and its screen priority thing messes up. I get it sometimes with other games too but in slightly but different similar ways. Does this game work on linux?

Another question. How can you tell which mod is causing the problem in the log file. I have this code... PS if its fort knox ive already turned it off meaning ive lost the save. good job it was a new one! i got to ambitious with the mods. PS im pretty new to the game.

Ive guessed its fort knox due to the loading order. It kept crashing and loosing data so i tried merging save files with the crash file but that didnt work... sorta.

The error seems pretty ambiguous as it seems like the game errors out because it cannot spawn a zombie in a square as far as I understand it. That can mean basically anything as it can be tied to map mods or any mods that change anything about zombies (their behavior or clothing etc)
Best I can suggest is disabling mods and checking whether the issue gets fixed, that way you can find out which mod causes that.
As for Linux, the game should run just fine on it. Though depending on the distro there might be other issues depending on how the monitor is being handled by Linux itself and such.

After further more playthrough it was fort knox but after that i also go another one with the boat mod. 

I am getting another one now but i know what mod it is, Item stacker with a few hydrocraft items. Its doesnt seem to effect the game as the log says it just ignores it.

If theres any issues i cannot figure out i will be sure to contact you.

PS. i have some awesome boss ideas. I just found out the lore and its a fungus if i was told right! I think your missing a trick by not adding spores and plants that mutate over time
