Star Forge travel Black Screen

Recommended Posts

So I hear this is a very common issue, but I've never come across a solution.

so I'm on the Unknown planet and ready to leave for the Star Forge, however, when I try traveling to the Star Forge via galaxy map, the cutscene for departure occurs, then I'm stuck on a black screen with only the cursor visable. Can't bring up menu, alt-tabbing doesn't work.

what do????

What mods do you have? And what have you done in your game? DS/LS? Male/Female? What was your decision at the top of the Temple?

Mods, I have a ton installed, although I've heard this can happen even without mods.

lightside, tried getting bastila to come back.

 

Is there a list of known mods that can cause this?

If there were, it'd probably be fixed in the mod ;)

But if you can provide a list of your mods, we could try to figure out which one might be messing with this part of the game.

My first guess is Bastila's revelation robes, since bastila02 through bastila06 UTCs caused a similar blackscreen for me when used with K1R. If that mod adds them into the Override, then there's a possible culprit.

 

 

 

A trick to see if that's the case was to save the game (hitting esc during the blackscreen then creating a save through the menu), quitting the game, and then loading that save. What I saw then was effectively a cuscene in progress with all of the characters frozen in place.

Anyways, it worked!!!!!! Woooo!!!! Thanks!!!!!
I removes those bastila_02 through 06 and it worked!!
Granted, I did remove all files from the revelation mod.

Very glad to hear. :)

I think it might be prudent to update the K1R compatibility thread of the fact that those specific UTC files are causing this problem.

 

As stated in a different thread, those files are also present in WOTOR and need to be removed in order for it to work with K1R.

Is it known why these files cause crashes? Or what specific edits to them are responsible?

 

And is that only an issue when using them with K1R or also in vanilla?

Well I use _04 and _06 and have not run into issues with my current K1 build, so I may suggest that it depends on what is edited

I can confirm that it is also an issue in vanilla KOTOR. One of those files, 03 if I'm remembering correctly, can also cause Bastila to be invisible during the interrogation scene on the Leviathan. Other than that and the black screen issue, of course, they don't seem to cause that many issues with the game, so you can probably still keep them in the override folder until those issues happen.

Reaching across the sands of time on this old thread to let you know what my fix was. This will be easier than parsing out which mod file is causing the issue. I had to do it this way because I never used the Bastila's revelation robes mod so I'm not sure what the exact issue is.

I cut the entire override folder from the game directory, moved it to desktop or trash. Then opened the game, unmodded, to get through the cut scenes and the first battle in the hangar. Then saved, closed the game, returned the override folder back to the game directory then loaded my save and everything worked perfectly.
