Black screen issues in Dragon Age: Inquisition
Some users suggest that the problem with black screen can be solved by toggling the game into windowed mode.
To do so, just press Alt + Tab, and after that, switch the game back to full screen mode, and the black screen problem should be solved.
Players spawning under the world in multiplayer
This is another commonly reported issue that often bothers players of Dragon Age: Inquisition.
EA still doesn’t have a proper solution for this problem, as it advises players to just exit the match, and try to log in again. Although the company promised a fix, users are still facing this bug.
This might sound unreasonable, since patches are being released to actually solve bugs and issues, but a lot of people report that certain problems in Dragon Age: Inquisition occurred for them after installing a patch.
So sometimes, the best option is to actually avoid a patch. To prevent Drago Age: Inquisition from installing a patch, do the following:
- Open Origin
- Go to Applications Settings, and then to Application tab
- Uncheck the Automatic game updates option
- Restart Origin
- Go to offline mode (Origin> Go offline)
Next time you launch the game, you will be able to play it without installing updates. However, if you already installed a patch, you can try to roll back to the original version of the game, and see if the error that bothered you when the patch was installed still occurs.
To roll back to the original version of Dragon Age: Inquisition, do the following:
- Before you start, make a backup of your saves, just in case
- Repeat steps 1-3 from above
- Uninstall the game (go to Control Panel> Programs and Features, and uninstall it from there)
- Restart your computer
- Reinstall the game
- Repeat steps 3-5 from above
If a patch was indeed a cause of the problem, running the ‘un-patched’ version of the game might eliminate all the issues, so you’ll be able to play the game normally, again.
