Black Screen in DirectX9

Recommended Posts


I have a problem with my FSX.

If I run it in DirectX 9 mode, I often see the desktop in loading screen (looks like here: http://www.bilder-hochladen.net/files/ktcf-4-a87f-png.html). Then, if loading is finished, nothing appears. If I press Alt + Enter, I get a black screen, but I can open the menu and hear the sound. Just sometimes it works, but then it crashes if i try to open the menu or save the game.


In DirectX 10 mode everything starts, but I have artifacts and not every addon works.


Here's my fsx.cfg: http://pastebin.com/FbkCnf49.


I run the game as administrator on Windows 7 professional, both service packs are installed.

I tried reinstalling and repairing FSX, uninstalling all addons, download DirectX again and install it.

dxdiag says that everything with DirectX is ok, and every other game works.


My system: Intel Xeon E3-1231v3

ASUS R9 280X Direct CU II TOP

Asrock H87 Performance Mainboard


Win7 Professional


I would be very happy if you could help me :)

Could it be that you have ENB installed? The fact that the problem only occurs in DX9 mode (and having experienced a problem sounding just like yours with ENB myself) makes me believe that. If my assumption is correct, try removing ENB, or at least try different configurations - funnily enough some configs work on some rigs, while they can cause such problems on others.

Try deleting the shaders folder, it should rebuild on restart of FSX.
