How to Get Rid of The Permanent Black Screen on Launch / Start Up [for Nvidia Graphics Cards]
[This Is For If Have An Older Nvidia GPU]
If you have a lower gpu that cannot run the DLSS shaders use theese settings
-ngxdisableota -windowed -res=720x1280
The first one is mandatory as it gets rid of the shaders that cause the game to start in a permanent black screen, the other two are recommended as the game is demanding for older systems but you can use whatever settings you want.
In order to put these settings in go to the game (if youve already bought and installed it) go to properties, and on launch options put the settings ive placed, or at least the first one.
Then BOOM the game will start up.
If the game still crashes on the menu due to an error disable your antivirus software and reinstall the game, from testing verifying game files does nothing.
