Not sure what is going wrong.

Assume you have a decent pc, Pion should not ask to much anyway.
You could try the other download and see if the result is the same.

Forwarded your post to one of the developers, he mentions the "error_log.txt" can hold clues if you receive any of those.

We can talk with the developers trough IRC, maybe you can drop by if the problem stays.
Hope it is solved so you can try it out.

With kind regards,
Tesla Coil

output_log.txt :

HandleD3DDeviceLost: needs reset, doing it
FullResetD3DDevice
ResetD3DDevice
dev->Reset
D3Dwindow device not lost anymore
Skipped rendering frame because GfxDevice is in invalid state (device lost)"

its not the best of graphic cards as my last geforce card burnt out so im stuck with this for the meantime.

   Version:  Direct3D 9.0c [ati2dvag.dll 6.14.10.6925]
   Renderer: Radeon X1300/X1550 Series  
   Vendor:   ATI
   VRAM:     256 MB (via registry)

il download the Installed Standalone and see if it works

Putting your card settings on "best performance" could help and try putting your screen size smaller if you still get trouble starting up the game.

Hope it fixes it for you.

PostSubject: black screen fixed   2014-03-14, 08:34

ok so far we figured out the black screen using these commands:

-force-opengl / -force_d3d11 / -force-d3d9-ref

either create a shortcut or use cmd to add any of these parameters for example

" pion.exe -force-opengl "


We are now able to create an account and attempt a login, but stuck at this point any help is much appreciated

Was a long process, but I had a similar problem on my laptop with ATI X1600.

I used ATI Tray Tools -> Tweaks -> Standard Tweaks and picked Override Pixel Shader Version 2.0 and for Vertex Shader - Disable override.

Took me a week of trial and error. Not all old ATI drivers are supporting it, and in general was a pain to make it work.
