hey if you can help it would be great. When ever i go into soldat and when i go to play it there is a black screen i can hear music, gunfire, and the respawn sound but no graphic. i disabled my firewall and that did nothing. Any ideas? Also this just started to happen after i installed the patch from 3.0 to 3.1 before that everything was fine

If you need the specs of my computer tel me which ones you need. thx

now why would this problem occur now? Soldat worked before updated with the patch...

i tried some of them with no luck. after that i did try to install soldat 3.0 version without an uninstall and now it works. i will try to re-download the patch from a different area.

EDIT: For some reason now everything is fine with version 3.1 i dont know if it was a fluke or not**shrugs**
