Game not loading and I get a black screen.

William Bailey shared this bug 2 years ago

I'm playing on an xbox one s and have had this problem before, however this time it happened after I closed the game due to being in a 20 minute plus loading screen. Now when I try loading the game it either freezes at the title image or shows the title image and goes to a black screen.

Dealing with game loading issues can be frustrating, especially when you encounter a black screen after closing the game due to a lengthy loading screen. In situations like this, it's essential to troubleshoot the problem to get back to your gaming experience smoothly.

First, make sure to check if there are any available updates for both the game and your Xbox system. Sometimes, game developers release patches or updates to address known issues, including loading problems. Updating your game and console might help resolve the black screen dilemma you're facing.

If updating doesn't solve the issue, there are a few other steps you can take. One option is to perform a power cycle on your Xbox One S. To do this, turn off your console, unplug the power cord from the back, and wait for about 10 seconds. Then, plug the power cord back in and turn on the console again. This process can help clear any temporary glitches or cache-related problems.

Additionally, you may want to check if there's enough storage space available on your Xbox One S. Insufficient storage can sometimes lead to game loading issues. Try deleting any unnecessary files or games to free up space and see if that improves the situation.

If the problem persists, it could be worth considering uninstalling and reinstalling the game. While this can be time-consuming, it often resolves stubborn loading problems by providing a fresh installation. Just ensure that you have a stable internet connection and enough time to download and install the game again.

For more information on troubleshooting this type of issue, I would recommend reaching out to the game's support team or searching online forums for specific SQL-related tips.

I hope these suggestions help you overcome the black screen issue and get back to enjoying your game.
