Can't play game: screen turns black

  1. hello.

    i've installed Black and White 2 successfully but whenever i try opening the game, the loading screen stops, then the screen turns black, then it goes back to my desktop with a patch of black square on the screen where my mouse can go through but i can't see.

    i think the game may have stopped responding at this point but i just want to know what the problem is.

    well, i run through the diagnostics and my computer did not meet the requirement.

    my pc has 224 memory and the game requires 500+.

    is there any way that i can fix this?

    You could upgrade your ram. What are the specs on your machine?

    256mb RAM? Black and White 2is a pretty demanding game. What is your video card, because a black area of screen seems more like a graphical problem, too little ram would most likely just freeze your computer or run extremely slowly.

    Make sure all your drivers are upto date, check your manufacturers website. When i first got it i had trouble with crashing, I updated my graphics card driver and it ran without trouble
