Oh, i thought it was posted under the game i entered the forum from.
Well it is about the Settlers: Rise of an empire - Gold edition.
Im running Windows 10, 64-bit.
Well, there is only one sub forum for all settlers games.
I just tested it with the main game, alt tabbing from main menu and first mission ingame does not crash my game. I'm using Win10 x64 too so that shouldnt be the problem. but there are win10 build version differences.. I'm on Build 14393 if thats any help.
are you playing on a notebook or desktop pc? for notebooks, maybe its a switchable graphics problem, for PC: what graphics card do you use? Nvidia (gtx960) is working fine (at least for me), cant say anything about AMD cards though. maybe (because why the heck not) try a gpu driver update.
edit: i can see that theres a big fat ugly "nvidia its meant to be played" icon in the option menu, so my guess is the game is better optimized for nvidia cards...
Does your image come back? My problem is that the game keeps running, but the screen is just black, with the music running, and a moveable mouse cursor.
My system is a desktop PC, this is what i rock:
Windows 10 Pro, build 14393.
Intel I7 6700k
Nvidia MSI GTX 1070 X
Asus Maximus VIII Hero
Crucial Ballistix 32GB RAM
The game is installed on a Samsung 840 SSD (a long with all my other games, wich have no problems)
I just tried un and installing my graphics driver, no luck.
