When I launch a game of Amnesia: Dark Descent, I am unable to see anything other than the crosshairs. Objects appear to exist and I'm able to move, I think but all I can see is a black screen. Is it supposed to be like this?
A common problem with the game is that integrated Intel graphic chips aren't supported (see GOG's system requirements
). You don't use by any chance a laptop with this hardware, do you? If so, getting Intel's newest drivers might help.
The technical support forum of Frictional Games has a very interesting official thread about graphics card troubleshooting that might help you. See here: https://www.frictionalgames.com/forum/thread-24129.html
