[Bug] Game gets stuck on black screen

The game will be stuck on a black screen with no visual feedback and no responsiveness if users exit the game during a battle.
This was reproduced 5/5 times on build 143031 (picked up build number from the download URL).

The only workaround i've found for the issue is deleting the save game either through the options or by starting a new run. 

System details:
Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit;
Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 975 Processor (4 CPUs), ~3.6GHz
Memory: 12288MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 12288MB RAM
Page File: 6591MB used, 17984MB available
DirectX Version: DirectX 12
Card name: AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series


thanks for the report! I'll check it out first thing on Monday!

Ah found it. It's a bug when loading combat data. I had fixed it but not in the release branch. My bad. I'll put out a hotfix soon!


Hotfix is out! Thanks again for reporting this!


My pleasure, i'll let you know if i come across anything else


Hey, was dealing with the same problem. Was playing during a thunderstorm and the power went out in the middle of a battle. Tried the work around and I'm happy to report that it works! However I did lose all my progress which is kinda frustrating.

Yeah, it seems like there's been some issues with a corrupted progress of running-game save. There are .bak saves for the running save game which might restore some data but I will try to make things a bit more robust so it doesn't lead to a black screen.


Just wanted to make sure you knew. Didn't see a bug report window ingame so I assumed it had to be dealt with outside of the game. Anyways hope it's easy to fix.
