Black Screen, can't play

Upon the first time playing the initial movie played fine. Shut it down and came back to it and now all I get is a black screen with the audio in the background.

GPU drivers are up to date. DirectX June 2010 installed.

When I ALT+TAB out I see a flicker of the video.

If I change my computers resolution while alt+tabbed and go bac in I get the video, however the screen is zoomed in too far to get past the initial options screen (cannot select anything).

On the first successful attempt screen resolution was 1920x1080. I have tried every other resolution my computer offers but even if successful cannot get past the initial options screen due to the issue mentioned prior.

I have uninstalled and redownloaded the game.

Any help would be appreciated.

SYS Specs:

ASUS N53S (brand New) and formatted to remove all crapware

Nvidia GeForce GT 540M
intel i7 processor
8 gigs RAM

No reason this game should not run due to SYS specs

You are right, there is no reason Numen should not run on your machine due to its specs. If everything looked fine on the first run, I would try to uninstall the game, use something like CCleaner to clean up registry and then I would go to the registry editor to see if Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Centauri\numen key is still in there. If so, I would delete the whole "numen" key and install the game again.

Or maybe I would delete that key right away, even though the game is still installed, to see what happens...

The tread is old, but still...

I had the same problem. The game tried to run on a resolution my monitor couldn't handle. Changing the values of 'xres' and 'yres' registry keys in Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Centauri\numen \gfx_options solves the problem.

I have the same problem currently, same specs as mentioned in the first post. I am not sure where you go to the registry editor to change the numen key, if that's what really made it work. Any help would be great

- Click the Start button on Windows desktop.
- Select "Run..." and type "regedit" (if you don't have the "Run..." item in the Start menu, you should have the search field there, type "regedit" into this field then).
- Follow the path "Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Centauri\nume n\gfx_options" in the left window.
- Double-click the "xres" item in the right window, change the value type to "Decimal" and type in your desired X resolution. If you would like to play the game in 1280x1024, type 1280 in the "xres" value. Save by clicking "OK".
- Double-click the "yres" item, switch to "Decimal" and type the Y resolution (1024 in my example). Save with "OK".
- Exit the Registry editor and run the game.
