Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Black screen
#1
Hello, 
When I choose kingdom hearts 2, I have a black screen and fps that lock after the first kinematic.

This happens with both Vulkan and OpenGL renderers.

I have attached a compressed file with both logs on it.

My specs:

OS: Windows 10 64-Bit
CPU: Intel Core i5-5200U
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 850M
RAM: 8 GB


Attached Files
.rar   Logs.rar (Size: 1.24 MB / Downloads: 3)

I wanted to play that game a few days ago and I have the same problem with the following hardware :


Computer Acer Aspire V Nitro 7
OS : Windows 10 version 1709, OS version 16299.726
Core Intel I7
GPU NVidia GEForce GTX 960M / Intel Graphics 530
RAM : 8 GB

I use RPCS3 version 0.0.5-7439-4ab777b4 Alpha.

I wonder why it does it, the game is labelled as playable on RPCS3 games compatibility list and on wiki...

The black screen issue seems to be related to playing cutscenes as I was able to reproduce the issue by removing the "Movie" folder in games. I was debugging a similar issue with Catherine.

In case of KH 2.5, you can try this to see if it helps

1. Set the game resolution to 720p if it isn't
2. Disable "Use GPU Texture Scaling"
3. Rename the first movie file (should be something like "OPN.pam") in your movie folder (something like /folder_where_you_keep_your_games/game_folder/PS3_GAME/USRDIR/Movie/)

By rename, I mean just add a single character so you can easily change it back if it doesn't work.

This helps with 1.5, so it should help with 2.5 as well.

Hi,
There's no 'Movie' file in my game folder, in PS3_GAME/USRDIR, I have 3 folders : 'BBSImage', 'KH2Image' and 'Launcher', with 2 .self files and an EBOOT.BIN. In the folders, I have only .Mself and .dat files.
EDIT : The part of that ISO abour re-coded works 'til the end of a cutscene. At the end of it, it freezes.

Ah, I see, 2.5 has a different structure.

Well, let's see if we can try something with that.


First, did you try to skip the cutscene?

If that doesn't work, inside the "KH2Image" folder (if there is a "Data" folder inside, look inside that), try looking for a .dat file that looks like it might be an intro (they're usually named something like OPN, START_1, ANM_1) and try renaming that. But I would suggest trying the option below:


OR, you can simply try an older build, like 6664 (last known to work with games that have a similar black screen issue):

I didn't try to skip the cutscene as it came into the Re-Coded part and it's made only of scenes like that. In the other games, I don't even access the main menu.
There is just an 'index.dat' file, so nothing looking as an intro file. I'll give a try to your second solution and keep you updated. Does message edition sends notifications, in case of no answer you meanwhile ?

Ah, if you don't wan't to skip it, then no need to even try to rename the movie file as all that does is not load the cutscene, so it skips it.

So yes, trying that build should be your best option.


Also, not sure what you mean by Message Edition; you mean this forum? There is a "Subscribe to this thread" link at the bottom left of the page, which should send you a notification when somebody posts.

Seems working with the old version of RPCS3 (at least for the beginning of Kingdom Hearts 2). Thank you for your help !
And by message edition, I meant : If you have the notifications enabled and the last message is from me, if I edit my message, do you receive a notification or not ?

I don't think editing your comment triggers the notification. I edited my comment a few times and it didn't send anybody anything.



Also, I just noticed, but you have HD 530, so do you have a i7 6700(k), mabye 7700? Ah, wait, you have a laptop, so it's probably 6700HQ

If so, then it does seem like the black screen problem is related to Skylake based CPUs. Maybe even that Spectre/Meltdown patch

EDIT: OP has a different CPU, but it does seem like CPUs around that time are the issue.
