I´ve got a problem. I recently bought STALKER and when i start the game my screen become black and shows me "cannot display this video mode change computer display to [email protected] to display". The game works in the background ´cause I can listen to the sound. I had the same problem in ARMA 3. Can anyone help me fix this cause ive searched google and never found a clear awnser

I got this when trying to change monitor.

Try alt+entering? Any way to launch as windowed mode either?

ive got into steam and then selected stalker and got into prioritys and changed launch options to '-windowd' and didnt help.

When i launch the game and get stuck in the black screen i cant get out of it except if i press the shut down button of my coputer and quickly cancel it out after it asks permission to stop steam.

Try setting the resolution either higher or lower if that don't work as one person said alt - enter I believe I had this issue just can't remember what I did to fix it.

Try changing your resolution and refresh rate in the user.ltx file. Its usually in C:\Users\Public\Documents\stalker just open up user.ltx with notepad and find rs_refresh_60hz and set it to 'on' then find the line that says vid_mode and set that to whatever resolution you want, so for example vid_mode 1920x1080.

Hopefully that works, but if it doesn't it may be a driver issue and you could try reinstalling or updating your video drivers
