Right, I'm getting at least 2 black screens by now (the whole screen is black, but the UI is showing. The minimap is showing wrong location, cannot do anything, not even crash yourself.)

Is there any way to fix this?

 

Also I noticed in 2.0.8 bombers have a nasty latency when dropping bombs. They force you to drop bombs at a certain interval or above (i.e. spamming left clicks no longer causes the bombs to be dropped instantly)

Is this a feature? if yes it would be a very serious nerf for single bomb bombers (or rather, just 217, as it is the only single bomb bomber for now.)

Try Alt-Enter when black, should toggle between full screen and windowed.  Not sure if its the answer, but I've had the black screen a couple times tonight, and that's "maybe" forced the graphics to be rendered.

if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

I have had three or four black screens today.  Seems to be a returning 'feature' with every major patch.  Sigh

Could you please be more specific about the appearance of the black screen for me to report it properly? 

I see black screen after/during respawn, any other cases?

Upon the start of game, right after the countdown reaches zero (the game rendering was normal during the countdown)

and the other occasion was right after respawn.

 

Not sure if this is related, but I hope you guys are also aware of another (earlier) bug that still shows the player you were spectating even after you have respawned. (you still can control your own plane, including crashing). This is solvable by using chat function (press enter twice) but the blackout we are referring to here isn't.

Thank you! Included the information to the report. :great:

Yes, this one is known and the team is investigating the issue to find out what causes the problem.

Having same issues tonight, also I can not select bomb sight with assigned key nor left shift which is default. This is the case from planes III-IX.

 

Black screen happens during waiting on respawn. As mentioned I can see some GUI but no map, terrain or plane and until it crashes, and respawn it will return most times. I tried alt+tab out and still same.

 

My ping runs between 40-80 and FPS 30-50. Yet I see big periods of ...lag?... as plane will not respond even with no damage showing...out of the zone and no targets in range.

 

And yes of course I got the bump update this morn.

i'm seeing that too...   the plane 'hangs' in midair while the rest of the battle goes on around me as normal

 

happens about 1-2 each battle, no ping issues seen during this time, and it always recovers after about 4-5 seconds

 

but it's the longest 4-5 seconds of my life

I get this kind of stuff too, looks like a packet loss without being shown on the FPS indicator.

 

Also please, WG, please fix these quickly, I just got 2 black screens in the same match in my Ki-93...

This seems to affect nVidia cards as my ATI box didn't suffer this issue.
