So apparently people has been booting up this game for the first time only to be met with a black screen, here’s how to fix that. May or may not fix this for other Origin games…?
Black Screen Fix
How can this happen
As of right now, the game doesn’t seem to handle fullscreen well, which it runs by default. Origin overlay being available at all times may have something to do with it, but it may or may not be the case
Run the game in safe mode
In the steam launch parameters, try running the game in safe mode, it’s the first thing I did when i tried to boot this up for the first time.
Navigate to the config file and open it
Just go to Users<User>%AppData%LocalCriterion GamesBurnout Paradise Remastered. Double click on config.ini
The second and last step
In the display settings, look for a line that says “WindowMode=0”. Change the Zero to a 1 (Windowed Mode) or 2 (Windowed Borderless Mode)
* Despite it being called borderless, the taskbar is still showing and there could be possible sound glitches.
If it doesnt work?
If it doesn’t do anything, maybe play around with your RTSS, MSI Afterburner, or any third party settings you have installed on your pc? Idk I never use any of them so I do apologize if this doesn’t help you.
