    Excellent find, OP! I can confirm this works on 3 seperate occasions (3/3). I always have my Weapon DOF turned OFF anyway, but simply switching it causes the black screen to go away once I return to deploy menu.

    Bravo Zulu

    Like I said, I didn't find this a friends friend did. Just trying to help out as many people as possible and I'm glad that some people are seeing this

    No problem. I'm about to link another guy who has some problems to this thread

    @LOLGotYerTags this isn't directed at you, but frustrating. My friend and I have provided a simple way to deal with the black screen since it obviously is an issue and has been since day one and hasn't been fixed.

    You guys close thread after thread for repeating the same topics. I've seen 4 today on black screen and they aren't getting closed. There is one thread on here that can help EVERYONE who encounters a black screen. Why you guys letting my thread get buried?

    Anyone??

    I think it would make a great sticky. Not sure why we need the Giant's Shadow sticky still up there. Replace the 2 maybe? Just a humble suggestion.

    Never seen that on PC. Thank god, if I saw that I might thought my VGA is malfunctioning and bought new one.

    Thanks for this little work around.

    Unluckily(or luckily depending on how you look at it) this happened last night on my first game of the night after work/patch, little tinker in the seetings back out/back in and the black screen of nothingness/markers had been replaced with the lovely squad screen visuals as should be.

    +1 to OP

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

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

    You should edit your main 1st post and put the video in it, so that people can see it immediately. Here is a video with the fix in German menu language (if you want paste this video too, then add this two halfs and paste it):

    Your video is all professionally done compared to mine lol. I'll add to my main post. Any Spanish from anyone?

    Okay added yours just now. If anyone gets the unfortunate opportunity to record in another language I'll add it to the main post also
