Black screen on second launch

Post by Giggity360 » Sat Mar 05, 2022 12:36 am

Hello friends, figured Id give this a shot and unfortunately i havent been able to play yet. I made a character, logged in, went to settings to change video settings and such, and when i clicked on windowed mode, screen went black. Closed the process, launched again, and now its still stuck on black screen, even with a pc restart

For black screen:
Go to your config.wtf file found in your wtf folder which is in your main wow folder
Add those lines:
SET gxWindow "1"
SET gxMaximize "1"

I got this while changing video settings, then black screen on load and cannot start the game to change anything.

Thanks so much, perfect solution!

I have the same problem, however I do not have a WTF-Folder in my TurtleWoW-folder, so i cannot change the config. Where should it be located?

Greetings!

Move the game out of folders like program files.
Example to something like C:\Turtle WoW.

Start the game and the folder will appear
