Game won't pass loading screen
I just bought bioshock via steam and when I go to start a game it the loading screen shows up but very dark and nothing happens, the only way out is to force quit.
I tried running in compatibility mode and other resolutions but nothing works except the game works when I run it in windowed mode.
Can someone please explain why the game is malfunctioning?
the first rule in asking for technical help is to list your specs...
I had the exact same problem (with Windows Vista), and found the 'turn off pc tablet' tip worked for me.
Here's how to do it:
Go to Control Panel
Click into Administrative Tools
Click into 'Services'
Scroll down to 'Tablet PC input service'
On the top left of the panel screen will be the option to 'stop' services: click that
retry loading BioShock
Worked for me! Hope it does for you as well!
Disabling the tablet PC worked for me as well. although it's still a little glitchy. I have it running now so I'm just going to try to not touch the graphical settings.
