Black Screen on Starting Evidence: The Last Ritual
I am terribly sorry if I’m posting in the wrong place, or if there’s another topic to this effect that I’ve been unable to find with searching!
Anyway, I run Windows 7 and DirectX 11. My video card is a Radeon HD 3800 with 2 gigs of VRAM, and I’ve 4 gigs of system RAM. I *think* that’s everything I the “Read This!” post mentioned that I needed to give! Sorry if it isn’t.
I have Evidence installed just fine, and I’m able to get through the in-game ‘registration’ with no problems and have received an email with my password for the game. However, when I attempt to log in, it appears to process my username and password and then goes to a black screen. I’ve let it sit this way for five minutes straight to no effect. One suggestion I’d seen given for a similar problem with this game on the old Adventure Gamers forum said that updating to the latest version of Quicktime would fix this issue, but when I tried that, I got a popup on attempting to launch the game telling me to please install Quicktime 6 from the root directory of the installation CD. I’ve tried running the game in 98/Me compatibility mode, which has had no effect on the issue. I always run older games as administrator as well.
Any suggestions, or am I out of luck? Thank you in advance for your time!
