Title: How to fix the horrible FH+ black screen. [1.13]
Post by: Jitters on November 03, 2011, 06:38:29 pm
This works for version 1.13


IF YOUR CHARACTER SELECTION SCREEN IS NOT BLACK GO TO THIS LINK: http://feral-heart.com/index.php?option=com_jfusion&Itemid=2&jfile=index.php&topic=16805.msg225267#msg225267 (http://feral-heart.com/index.php?option=com_jfusion&Itemid=2&jfile=index.php&topic=16805.msg225267#msg225267)


Try doing this, it fixed it for me... I suspect this is caused by a problem with the installer. If you are having problems with the home point after trying this, or your character creation screen isn't black then please see: http://feral-heart.com/index.php?option=com_jfusion&Itemid=2&jfile=index.php&topic=16805.msg225267#msg225267 (http://feral-heart.com/index.php?option=com_jfusion&Itemid=2&jfile=index.php&topic=16805.msg225267#msg225267)

(http://i44BannedImageSite/15eeb6h.png)
The problem is that your screen looks like this.

(http://i39BannedImageSite/16k25c4.png)
This is the default installation. If you installed it and it looked like this, backup your custom stuff, go uninstall your FH+ and delete the entire file.

I had another go and think I can offer something extra people can do to make sure this works. It seems to have worked for me.

Just in case people don't do this as well because it might not be entirely clear for some people: When uninstalling FH+, use the game's uninstaller. Do not just delete the programs folder or use windows add/remove.

Once you've uninstalled, double-check that the program folder is gone. Then use a cleaning program like CrapCleaner to get rid of any temporary files that might be lurking.

You are now ready to do a clean install. Follow Sameth's instructions, and make sure when you name the directory you use all letters. In other words, don't name the directory FH+. Name it FH or FHPLUS, doesn't matter as long as it is all letters.

Like I said, I had problems on all 3 pcs I tried it on, but as soon as I had used CCleaner after the uninstall, they all started working.

Start reinstalling it until you get to that point in the installation.

(http://i42BannedImageSite/2d7x8x1.png)
Type this into the box instead of the default location. C:\FHPLUS or C:\FeralHeartPlus or something similar.

(http://i43BannedImageSite/141qn0j.png)
Now bask in the glory of a beautifully working FH+.

If the screen is still black in maps be sure to log into the regular FH and move your character to Bonfire island before logging into FH+.



IF THIS GUIDE DOESN'T WORK GO TO THIS LINK: http://feral-heart.com/index.php?option=com_jfusion&Itemid=2&jfile=index.php&topic=16805.msg225267#msg225267 (http://feral-heart.com/index.php?option=com_jfusion&Itemid=2&jfile=index.php&topic=16805.msg225267#msg225267)


 The game's default "go home" position is Lonely Cave, which does not exist in FH+, so it traps you in maps! To get your existing characters into FH+, go onto FH and then change your home into either bonfire or the cape then log in to FH+ from one of the locations,or click "go home" to warp to whichever you chose. Or you could read my guide on how to make the home position work:http://feral-heart.com/index.php?option=com_jfusion&Itemid=2&jfile=index.php&topic=16805.msg225267#msg225267


 Enjoy! If you have any questions, please post them! I can help!

Please let me know how well it works for you :) This isn't a problem for the normal FH, and you can play both versions together with no problem :)

If you're having the problem with the normal FH as well, there is something else wrong. Try updating you video card drivers or changing rendering modes.

I'm not too sure about why this is. If you're searching your friends in FH+ and it says Flourite plains they are just playing FH, even though you are on FH+.

Nope, you can use the same installer you originally used. If you continue having problems after, you may want to re-download.

Go into c/program files (x86)/feralheart and there is an uninstaller in there.

Did you uninstall first? You absolutely need to uninstall.

If you did then try opening the game from c/fh+(or whatever you called is).

There is absolutely no reason to feel stupid. It isn't really stated anywhere that it needs to be done, and it is a very common problem. It took a lot of people a lot of time to find solutions to these problems because they were so confusing, and all of us suffered from them at some point.

Ok, so I re-installed and re-downloaded FH+ into a different folder then the original FH. I logged on and I didn't have a problem with anything. Now when I log on the screen is black, and when I try to return to Bonfire it says that Bonfire doesn't exist. Did I miss a step? lol

There could be several things:

1. Did you uninstall first? If you didn't then your shortcut is likely opening the older installation. To fix this open FH+ directly from the c-drive or go into c/programfiles(86)/feralheart and run the uninstaller.
2. When you re-installed, did you put it in the C-drive in it's own file? It cannot be in Program files or it doesn't work.

I did uninstall first. When you said it can't be placed in Program Files does that mean it can be placed in Program Files (x86)? That is what its in right now.

When it asks you where you need to download it, it needs to go into c/FHPlus, it must not be in Program files (x86), because the game isn't able to find map files in there for some reason. I haven't tested it in other files, but as far as I know it only works when placed directly in the c-drive.

Please help me, neither Feral Heart or Feral Heart + works! =(

I saw one of your replies to a comment, that you shouldn't install it in Program Files (86x),
and I was like "OH, that must be why Feral Heart didn't work!", and then I installed it in C:/ instead.

BUT, instead of getting a black screen, the game didn't start up at all. I got this error message:

"The program could not start up correctly (0xc0000142). Click on OK to close the program."

(Though it was in swedish, since I am swedish and my computer is set
to the swedish language.. sorry for the rough translation. xd)

Please help?? I tried both FeralHeart and FHPlus, none of them works, all I get is that error message...
Though when I do install it in Program Files (86x) the black screen bug appears.

So, well, what do I do? :'<

If you tried re-installing it into a new location, be sure to use the new link, as the old shortcut will not work. Go into c/FH+ (or whatever you named it) and try running it from that link.

If it doesn't work from there, open FH and take your character into either Bonfire island, or the Cape of Distant Worlds and then log out and log back into FH+.

There are several things you could do if the re-installation didn't work. The "set home" button doesn't work in FH+ BTW!

Have you tried:
1.Going into FH and put your character into bonfire, and then log out and open FH+ with that character

If you didn't un-install before re-installing, the old shortcut will be broken. Go into c/fhplus and run it from the icon in there.

I tried this. it worked for the first time, every time after wards it goes too black.

What did you type in to the "directory" box? Also, you can not use your old shortcut, instead run it from your c drive.

This has happened to me too.

Windows 7 has two program directories. Normal "Program Files" for 64-bit and "Program Files (x86)" for 32-bit. The new FH+ game does not work in either of these directories, nor does it work correctly by giving it its own directory in computers less than 1 year old (I have tried this on 3 brand new home computers running different windows specs). The game will work on the first install, then remain black on the next launch. This is the result of following the main topics instructions and launching straight from the C drive etc.

I would suggest that someone look at it properly and provide a fully working game. Clearly if it can't function on a basic level of launching for people there's something fundamentally wrong /: I don't mean that to sound harsh, because I know the game is hard work to maintain. However, I have not gotten it to work on 3 brand new top of the range gaming computers... and it should be able to work from the OS default program directories, really.

The people who have the power to make it properly working....will not be looking at this thread. Please take up your issue with Simba, or ask Red to forward it to Kov. I have sent a message to Simba, who will likely fix it for the next FH+ update. I am not able to do anything more than provide a temporary fix. I'm sorry this didn't work for you, and I'm saddened that this game isn't playable to everyone.

Your theory about it not working on new computers is incorrect, as my computer is brand new as of late last summer. There could be a number of other reasons as to why it doesn't work, and unfortunately I cannot offer a solution other than the one posted.

It went into C;Feralheart+ (i made a new folder for it)   Also I ran it from the C; (also i always delete any shorcuts I don't use use anymore, to stop my desktop getting cluttered) XD

But hopefully it will get fixed for the next update, and I don't mind waiting for the next update to try that one out, but thanks for the help anyway! XD

I had another go and think I can offer something extra people can do to make sure this works. It seems to have worked for me.

Just in case people don't do this as well because it might not be entirely clear for some people: When uninstalling FH+, use the game's uninstaller. Do not just delete the programs folder or use windows add/remove.

Once you've uninstalled, double-check that the program folder is gone. Then use a cleaning program like CrapCleaner to get rid of any temporary files that might be lurking.

You are now ready to do a clean install. Follow Sameth's instructions, and make sure when you name the directory you use all letters. In other words, don't name the directory FH+. Name it FH or FHPLUS, doesn't matter as long as it is all letters.

Like I said, I had problems on all 3 pcs I tried it on, but as soon as I had used CCleaner after the uninstall, they all started working.

Like I said, I had problems on all 3 pcs I tried it on, but as soon as I had used CCleaner after the uninstall, they all started working.

I'm going to quote this in my first post, it's very helpful, thank you :)

Also I tried it agian just in case, and i found out if you set the home to bonfire (anywhere where it's the same in FH) then after you've finished playing, 'go home' then you should be fine next time you play in FH or FH+

Um..I tried this for the Black Maps and uninstalled and reinstalled many times but nothing worked...In the section where you create your character is fixed and I thank you for that but I still have one problem.  When I go into the game, I can move my character around, but all I see is black, black,black! Do you know how to fix that? :)

Did you try going into regular FH and moving your character to bonfire before logging in to FH+?

Oh my gosh! Thank you so much! I just had to make Bonfire my home and it works! Yay! Thank you so much! Is there any way I can repay you?! :3

Also...not to bother you or anything..but on  Bonfire I cannot find the Ficho Tunnel portal in FH+. It is not where the portal is supposed to be in FH so did it move or do I have to use Ficho Caverns? Otherwise I am not sure how to get to Fluorite Plains or South Pole..

The portal to ficho is on the hill, just run around.

FH+ has a whole different map set, so Flourite an South Pole do not exist, but there are pmenty of other pretty maps to see!

The normal FH has more people on it and just generally works better, I would suggest it over FH+. There is an update to FH+ coming out soon anyways, which fixes these problems.

There are several reasons why it wouldn't work

1. You didn't uninstall
2. You used the old shortcut, run it from c/fh+ instead
3. You character must be moved to bonfire in the regular FH before it works on FH+

I was at Bonfire, and the only thing I could see was my character and other characters, everything else was black. Thank you SO much, Sameth ^_^

Read the tutorial more carefully and you'll find your answers, as the guide contains a way to make "Go home" work, AND how to transfer your character between versions.

I installed it, had a black chara screen, and thought whatever... I managed to fix the black chara screen, but then, when i entered the game itself, I had a black screen also. I tried to reset my home and go home, but the home box is empty and it says that the map doesn't exist. Thinking that maybe It was just because it was an old chara, I made a new chara with the same results. The game files are in C:/FHPlus. I came here in hopes of being able to solve that, but nothing you have here helps me! Dx I don't even see other players! I'm in a nonexistant map with nonexistant terrain, sky, and even home positions... >.<

The game's default "go home" position is Lonely Cave, which does not exist in FH+, so it traps you in maps! To get your existing characters into FH+, go onto FH and then change your home into either bonfire or the cape then log in to FH+ from one of the locations,or click "go home" to warp to whichever you chose. Or you could read my guide on how to make the home position work:http://feral-heart.com/index.php?option=com_jfusion&Itemid=2&jfile=index.php&topic=16805.msg225267#msg225267

For your character, I think you should Reset it.

Under  Registration Closed, it would say, "Reset Character"

FeralHeart+ doesn't exist anymore. For you're situation, try changing subsystems in the ogre.cfg file in the game folder.
