Black screen retroarch 1.7.7


Recommended Posts

Hey team,

I searched all over the internet and posted on multiple forums but cannot seem to find an answer. I just downloaded retroarch 1.7.7. At first it wouldn't open at all. Then I added a video driver d3d9 to the config and it opens to a black screen. I'm stuck.

Please help!

In my experience black screens on loading in RA are caused by a shader being loaded that is incompatible with either the core itself because of driver (ie: slang shader with Mupen64 core which is GL only) or incompatible with the video driver itself.

Try changing your video driver back to OpenGL, open the retroarch.cfg and do a search for:

video_driver =

set it to:

video_driver = "gl"
