Wait 5-10 minutes as Remnant 2 Renders Video Cache

Multiple users have reported that if you are getting a black screen on startup for Remnant 2 and it stays like that for some time, don’t end the process; instead, try waiting 5-10 minutes, as it can happen if there is something wrong with the game trying to render video cache. This is the first thing you should try to fix the issue.

Try Disabling VPN or your Internet

If you are stuck at a Black screen or your game crashes just after the black screen, you should try disabling any VPN you might have running in the background. If there is no VPN, you might have to disable your internet momentarily to start the game. After the first screen appears (which is not a black screen), you can quickly turn on your internet; this way, you can also go online.

This issue can also arise after updates and patches, so try this workaround if you are facing one.

Update your graphics drivers

Having an up-to-date graphic driver is essential for a smooth experience. You can update your Nvidia and AMD drivers through Geforce Experience and AMD Radeon software.

Lock your FPS to 60 from the control panel

Sometimes the mismatch between the game setting and your screen configuration can cause the black screen problem. This can be prevented by locking your FPS to 60 through your Graphics Control Panel.

Disable your Fullscreen optimizations

Another way to solve the black screen issue in Remnant 2 is to disable your fullscreen optimization settings. Right-click on the Remnant 2 icon and open the Properties. There, access the Compatibility tab and disable the Fullscreen Optimization option.

You can also enable the “Run and Administrator” option for good measure.

Close all unnecessary applications

Applications that a running in the background could be hogging up all the resources needed to run your game. Open your task manager and close all the necessary applications like web browsers etc.

Also, disable the Xbox Gamebar and any overlays that are active (Steam, AMD/Nvidia, and Overwolf Overlays).  This should also fix your black screen issue in Remnant 2.

Update your Windows

Older versions of Windows might not be compatible with Remnant 2. Especially if you are running Windows 10 or previous versions. Make sure to have your OP up to date to avoid unnecessary annoyance.

Older versions of Windows not only have issues running new games but are also a detriment to your system’s security. We recommend enabling the window’s auto-update feature.

Reinstall DirectX and Microsoft Visual C++

You can also try to reinstall Direct X / Open GL along with verifying that you have installed the Required version of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable. Both of these software can be found on their official websites.

If you have already installed Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable, you can run its setup can verify the file integrity to ensure that it’s not corrupted.
