View Full Version : Underwater Black Screen
Help ! As soon as I, well I mean Lara, goes underwater, the screen goes black and I cannot see until I come back to the surface, how can I correct this ?

I had the exact same problem. I went to video settings and restored them to default, then I went to http://www.eidosinteractive.co.uk/s...h.html?gmid=134 and downloaded the update patch. Not only did it fix the underwater problem, it gave me cool menu graphics that I never had before. I'm now in the process of sneaking my screen resolution back up to see if it affects the game again.
Hope it helps, seeya.
Thanks Black_Slap_Tricky !
It worked well when I did what you told me the first time but then when I booted the machine up to play again I got this message, did you get this ? Any idea what it means ?
Thanks a lot for your help,

Didn't have that as yet, but I did get one or two unknown kernal errors which seemed to resolve themselves after a few reboots (about 3). Try general disk repair and defragmentation and if the problem persists let me know, I'll ask my coder mate what the hell it means!
