Call of Duty World at War [Black Screen Fix]
Ok in our last “Possible black screen fix” we were able to get a few more people into the game but not everyone, So we have kept looking around and also trying to force some errors on our PC’s without luck tho.. Anyway here are a few more call of duty world at war black screen solutions (they are possible solutions) we are doing our best to help all you people who are unable to get call of duty world at war to start up correctly.
Firstly.. go into the folder were you installed call of duty world at war:
“Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty – World at War Beta\main\video\”
Delete the file called: “Treyarch.bik” this is a video file that is causing most of the lock up apon start up’s, worst comes to worst you can reinstall call of duty world at war later on, But this method is helping many people.
Other solutions as i mentioned are making sure all your drivers are up to date, make sure your directx is up to date, and most people who are using service pack #3 (SP3) for Windows XP are not having any trouble at all, most issues are occurring on vista & win xp sp1 & sp2.
Please note this is still BETA … beta is for testing and ironing out errors like these i know its frustrating but you are ensuring that come the retail version that all these errors & problems are fix, All games that are released go through the same phase and come out fine, The call of duty world at war beta caused so much hype that people think this is a call of duty world at war demo / cod 5 demo / call of duty 5 demo.. when it is a Call of Duty World at War BETA VERSION. Keep an eye on our site because soon as we have an official fix you will hear it here first. We have a feeling there is a new Beta version being released in the coming days that will address most of these issues.
Thanks everyone for your patience & understand during this critical time.
