Pink Blocky Screen that replaces menu.

Post by Vickeril000 » Mon Oct 03, 2016 2:40 pm

When I click on the Wolf Quest icon everything loads just fine. Click the play game button, configuration button pops up, click play. Then when the menu screen is supposed to load for me to actually start playing the game, the screen turns into these giant blocky pink shapes that sort of look like trees and bushes with a dark blue background that I guess is supposed to resemble the sky. I've tried waiting an hour to see if the screen changes and turns into the actually menu, but it doesn't work. I've tried reloading multiple times and even changing settings. If someone could help me out a little that would be very nice. (Note: This has actually been happening for 3 days, I just posted this now due to trying to see if it was my computer doing this and not the game)
Thank you for your time.

Hey there! This sort of thing actually happened to me when I first downloaded the game, and uninstalling and reinstalling the game fixed the problem for me. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling yet?

Thank you for your time.
1) Was this version of the game fine for you before this, or has it been like this since you started playing?
2) Does your computer meet the recommended system specifications for the game?

3) Does this sound like your problem?
The game screen is blue except for "WolfQuest" title and some blurry buttons.
This bug appears to be caused by certain old graphics cards or drivers. To work around it, press ctrl-alt-delete to open the Windows Task Manager. Then just switch back to the game, and the problem should be solved If that doesn't solve the problem, try updating your graphics drivers. Here are the links for the three main graphics manufacturers:

Intel: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product ... uctID=1044
Nvidia: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
AMD: http://support.amd.com/en-us/download

(I would also recommend reinstalling the game, so please follow the previous suggestion.)
YOU SAY YOU WANT TO GET BETTER AND YOU DON'T KNOW HOW.
