Linux Black Screen Temporary Workaround


Hello, Linux-friends,
We know that some of you are experiencing an issue where the game starts and all you see is a jet black screen. While you might think this is the game, we assure you it is not. It seems to be an issue with some Linux configurations, especially when prime synchronization is in use. Essentially, a 0x0 resolution is being auto detected for fullscreen mode and being used by the game startup.

It’s not a perfect solution but a workaround (until we patch it) is to navigate to:

~/.config/unity3d/Spooky Doorway/The Darkside Detective/

and edit the prefs file to be like this:

<pref name=”Screenmanager Is Fullscreen mode” type=”int”>0</pref>
<pref name=”Screenmanager Resolution Height” type=”int”>1080</pref>
<pref name=”Screenmanager Resolution Width” type=”int”>1920</pref>

This will set fullscreen mode to false and force a windowed resolution of 1920×1080.
If it doesn’t help, it would be awesome if you could forward on your Player.log and prefs files from the above directory to tracey {at} spookydoorway {dot} com

We hope this helps some of you,
The Spooky Doorway Team (but mostly Tracey)
