Game doesn't launch

Post by usedunicorn » Sat Jan 20, 2018 5:31 pm

Game doesn't launch just flashes a black screen
Things I have tried, Reinstalling NVidia drivers, Reinstalling fs17, DirectX reinstall, launch as administrator etc.
I dont get why it doesn't work as it is on a clean install of windows 10

EDIT: game works if i launch it from C:\Program Files (x86)\Farming Simulator 2017\x86

Well you're first problem is that the game isn't recognizing the graphics card- it's recognizing the integrated graphics. If you're using a monitor, are you sure the vga/Dvi/hdmi cord is plugged into the graphics card and not the motherboard?

Based on the first line in the log.txt

Code: Select all

it looks like you are running a quite outdated version of the game.

Please make sure you have the latest patch to version installed.
