A lot of the players have been facing issues with Black Screen once they load up Palworld. One of the users on Steam complained that once he loads up the game, it lasts for around 5 seconds, and then it doesn’t progress further. He confirmed that he possesses beefier system specifications than the game recommended. Issues like these are prevalent for newer launches, so we have a list of suggestions for you.
So this article will guide you on how to fix the Black Screen issue in Palworld.
How to fix the Black Screen in Palworld
These are some of the fixes that we suggest.
Run the game as an Admin
In order to fix the Black Screen issues in Palworld.
- Exit Palworld Game first.
- Close Steam Completely
- Then right-click on Game and run Palworld as an Administrator.
This is an issue that has been raised by a Steam user, and Austin, one of the players, got a simple fix. This is what he says.
“Hey guys, for Steam users having this issue, closing out steam completely “Exit Steam” and then reopening by running as administrator fixed my issue, hope this helps.”
The author of this discussion marked this answer as the best as it fixes the issue not only for him but for a lot of players. Even we faced a similar issue, and simply right-clicking on the desktop and running Palworld as an Admin fixed it for me.
Since the game is free on Xbox, a lot of the players might not have their icons showing up on the Desktop. In this case, go to the location where your game is installed, right-click on the .exe file, and create a shortcut on your desktop. Right-click on the Palworld Shortcut you have
Verify your Files & Set your Internet to Public
It is essential that you always Verify your files no matter which platform you are running this game on.
You should also set your Internet to Public and not Private and get past the black screen. This fix worked for a certain number of people and might also work for you.
Install the Game on an SSD
SSDs are a must when you think about gaming in 2024. HDDs are entirely redundant, and they should only be worth storing data. Not only Palworld but any game that got released post-2023 should necessarily be installed on an SSD for its performance. Installing Palworld on an SSD rather than an HDD is another way of eradicating black screen and other launch/loading issues.
Reinstall the Game
If nothing works, you can try reinstalling the game. Completely reinstalling the game fixes a lot of launch and startup issues with Palworld.
Although running the game as an admin fixed this issue for most of the Palworld players. But if you are still unable to run it, you can send Palworld developers a ticket.
