totally agree, none of the other black screen threads were remotely close.
I just tried rivatuner, and it didnt want to run on win10 64 bit, so went back to fraps, not elegant, but in the bottom right corner I dont even notice it

Have you tried steam overlay (adding gpl exe to steam library and run gpl from there, overlay is activated by default), maybe will work? I usually run GPL via steam to take screenshots and it works great (using openglv2).

Also thanks to John :thumbup:

dont have steam or any reason to run steam. only game installed is GPL. ill stick with Fraps since it works and dont have to install more software, but others may find that useful

It was the same for me since the last Win10 update. OpenGLv2 and having Fraps FPS displayed solved my problem.


My question is why? Is this the issue where GPL needs something running in the background for the CPU or GPU to realize that it's running a 3D game? I have similar specs to Warrenbnz (but a desktop rather than a laptop) but seemingly don't need that fix.

That's strange, I think this could be a problem with video drivers, I have a better system but very similar and no problem, but I have a desktop and use a 4k TV as monitor, Windows 10 x64 version 1809 and Nvidia GeForce 416.16.

Please don't upgrade to Windows 10 1809, I've experienced no problem but someone lost their files in Documents and so Macro$hit paused the update rollout.

Roglv2.dll contains all the function to go at full res and switch back, appear that in some way it lose the capacity to switch back to basic resolution and the forced overlay cure this.

Could be helpful reporting some more informations for video drivers, open Nvidia control panel, click on the question mark and select system info, check for drivers version, for Windows, click on start and write winver then press enter, look for version and build.

winver produced the box in the image attached...
is this what you asked for?
Am going to try updating to 416.16 drivers off nvidia website. current one is from Asus website specific to the laptop model

So I updated the drivers to the latest on the geforce website, 416.16
Tried to run GPL without using fraps, and its back to the black screen issue.
Run with Fraps running, and black screen issue gone.
I'd be interested to hear if anyone has suggestions based off the system info i posted
Nvidia info in this attachment is with the 416.16 drivers

Windows 10 version 1803 is the latest not so worse, Nvidia 416.16 WHQL is the latest version and, for what I tested, a good version.

I have the need to have more cases to find common factors and so try to find where could be the trouble.

Can I ask another test?
As your display is of a portable pc, and the switch to and fro resolutions need voltage / frequency change, sometimes happen to be not so reliable in systems strictly tied to energy saving or low battery comsumption, can you try to use an external monitor or a TV?

In my Nvidia Control Panel I have a question mark in the top menu because my drivers are in italian, in the english version the same menu voice appear as Help, my fault, I haven't check and supposed that a ? have not to be translated for Italy from Help to ?
They don't have the same meaning, here in Italy the question mark is used meaning informations request, from latin quaestiƍ (question) not as help.
I suppose they used someone like Hrundi Bakshi to translate english menu to italian.
