Have any of you actually looked at the post that Tiggs made yesterday where he stated that the server was going for EXTENDED maintenance, and would be down from 10 a.m. PST for about 6 hours. I only ask because I'm experiencing the self same eternal black screen... but I have had this problem before... where the client connects to a server that is still down for maintenance

Sorry if my initial question was phrased rudely.. that was NOT my intention

And yes... before anyone points it out... I know that the server advised everyone to log off at 7 a.m. PST today... just like it does every week :D

I was keeping a close eye on maintenance, from beginning to the time it finished, and of course, I wanted to polish off my last two levels so I could dome up to 55 and get my gear squared away that I'd saved up from my other toon. Now, after the patience and check ups on it, I've come to find that like many of you, as well as the people blowing up my texts and comments with the same thing, as well as myself, are experiencing a mysterious black screen that DOES NOT END no matter HOW LONG you WAIT.... This is locking everyone out of the game, and I do hope everyone understands the severity of this issue, and the misconceptions it may bring, and any new incoming players (and yes I have seen a few newbies true newbies, they aren't a myth entirely) are gonna get a real sour impression if the game isn't stepped up.

Fallen Earth Facebook stated it was up in service after the maintenance period. Have YOU actually looked at the facebook posts?

We're trying to isolate the issue and get this resolved. While this was happening to some players, it's not happening to all and we were in game with players.

Tried everything i could think of, all I see is black.

APB is horrible game yet you guys seem to dedicate a lot to it.

I strongly suggest a little more attention to this game.

Either make it right or sell to some entity willing to try.

I love the game and i want to play it further please, thank you.

Looked at Steam Charts said 42 players were playing an hour ago.  Seems this blank screen is happening to some, but not all players.

They should give us a HUGE discount on the marketplace for this inconvenience.  Like 70 to 90% off.  That would bring more players back, and restore sanity to the Auction House.

All day I've tried.  Uninstalled/reinstalled--via Steam  -  G1 and nothing but a Black screen.  Drove to a friends home 17 miles away and they are experiencing exactly the same issue.

Still cant get in, nothing but black screen - I understand that you are trying to isolate the problem but this is yet another time that there has been a problem, maybe those affected by this black screen problem should receive some sort of compensation or maybe give us a 1 day commander premium (its not much but we have all lost a day of playing due to this problem) 

 

And i do agree with alot of people who play this game when they say if your not going to care for the game but waste alot of time on APB, sell Fallen earth on to a company who does actually care, who will benefit the players. It is (or used to be) the best MMO out there, but hey thats just my opinion.

Is it a Steam issue? I use steam on 2 different machines and both go to a black screen. Machines have different hardware and the older machine I got at least 4 years ago. I am trying a normal install without steam. It's downloading now.

Dead in the water here as well, along a level 3 fiber connection, an ATT fiber connection, and an ATT DSL connection. East cost. Static IP's can be provided, if this is a network issue.

 

Graphics hardware is nVidia 780GTX, Radeon 6970, and a Radeon Firepro w4100

 

EDIT: Both steam log in and direct launcher.

Updated my graphics driver and tried logging into an alt account.

 

Still a blank, black screen.

 

Guess I'll try later.   I may lose items in the marketplace because of this malfunction !!!

Hello folks, 

 

Sorry for the long period of time without an update. We're reverting to a previous save before the maintenance started and it's taking longer than expected.
