How To Fix V Rising Black Screen After Character Creation
Some players have reported that they run into a black screen immediately after character creation. This error seems to occur particularly only on dedicated servers, which includes both rented servers from GPortal and your or your host's server at home (PC).
Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try to fix V Rising black screen after character creation:
Reinstall the server
As reported by some players on Reddit, reinstalling the server seems to solve the problem for them. This can be done by navigating to your Saves and deleting the files related to your dedicated server. In case you are using GPortal servers, you can go to the settings tab of your server and click reinstall to create a fresh copy of the V Rising server.
Verify the integrity of game files
It is possible that corrupted or damaged game files are causing the black screen. If that's the case, you can compare the files on your computer with the ones on the Steam servers to see if they match. To do that:
- Right-click on the game in your Library and select Properties.
- Then, select LOCAL FILES from the left pane and select Verify integrity of game files...
- Wait for the process to complete. Once completed, launch the game and see if the issue persists.
Install the latest patch
The developers released Patch 0.5.41591 on May 30, 2022. This patch includes general client optimizations to improve the stability and performance of the game. The game should update automatically when you are not playing, so you don't need to install it manually.
Reach out to GPortal and V Rising support team
If the issue still exists, create a ticket on the GPortal website and address it to their support team (if only you are using the GPortal server). They will take a closer look to provide a solution.
You can also contact the V Rising support team and let them know about the issue. They will investigate the issue, and hopefully, provide a solution as soon as possible. You can either contact them on Twitter or send a mail to email@example.com.

How To Fix V Rising Black Screen Bug
While some players encounter a black screen after character creation others slowly run into a black screen while playing the game. According to the affected, a black pixel forms somewhere on the screen and it slowly starts to spread like a 'fog' until it consumes the entire screen.
This seems to be a bug with texture or lighting blending. Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try to fix V Rising black screen background:
Rejoin the server
Rejoining the server has fixed the issue for many players. If you are having this problem, just go back to the main menu and rejoin your server and the issue will be solved.
Restart the game
If the issue still persists, just restart the game and it should work. This is a temporary fix and there are chances that you will encounter the black screen again.
Change your anti-aliasing mode
Changing the anti-aliasing mode seems to be the only way to fix the bug without exiting the game. It has worked for some and maybe it will work for you as well. Just play with the settings and see if it works.
Contact the V Rising support team
Restarting the game or rejoining the server every time the issue occurs isn't the ideal solution. The only way to fix the bug once and for all is by reaching out to the support team.
You can either contact them on Twitter or send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Hopefully, they will roll out a patch soon to fix the bug.
