So about 2 weeks ago I go to load up Card Hunter and get the dreaded black window. I found some helpful stuff online but nothing worked. I spent 40$ in game on the 29th of July and 2 days later the game doesn't work at all. I emailed support@cardhunter for help. Here is the email I sent: ========================================================================== Hi I figure this is the best way to get help. So heres the deal. I purchased Card Hunter 7 days ago on Steam. I've put 80 hours into the game since the 29th. Also spent 40$. I love the game and want to support it. Even had the intention of spending another 50+. I now open the game and get a 1100x700 black screen. The log file doesn't seem helpful but I can send it if you'd like. I'm at a dead end as I have tried everything, I will mention that now. I have deleted the two files in the AppData folder mentioned in the steam forums by card hunter support dealing with this same issue from 2 years ago. I have changed the resolutions in the XML file to 1980x1080 from 1100x700. I have also changed the render mode to cpu in the XML file. I have restored my computer. Verified steam game contents. Deleted and reinstalled the game through steam. Updated all drivers. Restarted multiple times during all this. It's been 3 hours and I give up. Really sucks I dump 40$ into a free to play game and then have this happen and it not work at all. I really fell in love with this title and am very disappointed. I'm hoping you have some silver bullet to help with this black screen issue. I doubt I could get my account transferred somehow to the web based version? I just found out that existed. I haven't left a review on steam yet and was planning on doing a very extensive one to help support the game. I'd hate to end it on an issue like this. ========================================================================== So after waiting 3 weeks I have yet to hear anything from support@cardhunter. Meanwhile I tried reinstalling the game about 10 times and the issue persists. I have a massive review waiting to be uploaded to steam and just for sh*ts and giggles I decide one more time to install the game....lo and behold...it works now.... I try to log in. It says not a valid username. I try to recover the username and it says the username does not exist. I try to recover the password it say no account with that username. I register a new profile and it wont let me use my original username saying it's already in use. Isn't that odd? My username is brokenpaine. The same user that 40$ was spent under and the same username thats in my most recent log from before the black screen issue started. So I am positive my username is correct. I also have receits. Is my account locked for some reason. I would really love to get my account back and continue where I left off. I even still have all my original the achievements unlocked. So if someone with BlueManchu could help me out I would really appreciate it. I'm stoked the game actually works now but won't be so stoked if my 40$ of content is gone. Please help!
