    When you come into a game that has the black screen...

    Press Start
    Select "Options"
    In Options, select "Video"
    In Video, turn "Weapon DOF" from On to Off

    Back out to deploy screen and you'll be good. Make sure to go back and turn it off afterwards. Works every time

    Great I'll try this next time it happens to me thanks

    (ouch just bumped my head on this thread if only I could get a sticky plaster)

    What if my DOF was already set to "off" and I get the Black Screen Glitch?

    If it was off (which mine always is) still turn it on and back off.

    Thanks ill try it out next time. Still no excuse for this to be happening though, especially this late in the game. Hopefully it's fixed soon.

    One weird little trick that I like to use when I get the black screen is to remember that BF1 is an EA game and play a different game.

    Excellent find, if true @HardAimedKid

    Will try it next time.

    It's so frustrating joining buddies in Operation only to get blacked out.

    Given how damn slow the menus are in this game, that sometimes means an entire 5-10 minutes waiting for things to load backup

    Thank you. I always wondered if there was a work around for this. One of my biggest peeves with the game is spending 5 minutes getting into a game only to be greeted by the void.

    This likely wont be stickied folks, we have a fair amount of those as is - but what it will do is, it should help our team track down what is causing the issue a little bit better. So thank you for providing input on that!

    I bet you were wishing you'd get the black screen so you can record the fix

    Haven't had the black screen since you put the thread up but thanks for the post

    For those that have this issue frequently are you quitting online play from the game menu and waiting for the "Quitting" to complete in the game or just exiting the game by using the xbox button?

    I started to quit within the game and waiting for the battlefield menu to come back up before I leave the game or turn off the console and I don't have this issue anymore. I was previously just hitting the xbox button and leaving the game that way.

    With all the crap you guys have stickied i dont see a reason why this wouldnt be. Clean up these boards, they are a mess.

    Well I suppose that it's unlikely that something that has gone unaddressed and can be fixed by some Cracker Jack method such as this and brings more attention to the issue probably wouldn't be stickied lol.
