After Square Enix log in, and then the logo that flashes up in the game window, nothing happens :( it just remains blank. This didnt happen to first time I loaded up the game but that time it quit itself because I didnt have any characters added to the account.

Anyone else having this issue or does anyone know if there is a fix?

just to add: I'm trying a reinstall now, but I would like to know what the cause/fix is for this incase it happens again.

answer is towards the bottom, perhaps this will be the fix you need

Sorry its not quite the same I'm not using ATI, and the program doesnt tell me it errors it assumes the game is running still. Open beta game worked fine throughout, and as said before, the game loaded teh first time but perhaps when it quit itself from character select it corrupted itself? *shrugs*

also adding if its relevant: drivers are up-to-date as of three weeks ago but its not so simple for me to update them anymore because nvidia think its a great idea to change my refresh rate >.< so its a very long winded process of restarting into safe mode to fix the issue which usually ends up back to square one anyway.

If it did work, and now doesn't the first thing I'd do is reinstall. Its by far the least painful of available options :)

It doesn't sound like you're actually crashing so there is probably nothing in your event log, but have a check anyway. On Vista/W7 in your start menu search box thingy type "event viewer" and load it, and check under the Application log. On WinXP right click on My Computer and select Manage, then in the MMC drop the Event Viewer tree and look in Application. Doubt there will be anything useful there but its worth a looksy anyway!

Reinstalled and downloaded all the update data, still same though :( realy baffles me since it loaded the first time I booted this up. Screen still remains black after the Square Enix logo upon entering the game.
Tried run as admin just in case but still same :(

Sounds stupid, but have you restarted?

Try changing a graphics setting - Lower res or Buffer size

If you're not in Windowed mode, try it the other way around, if you are, vice versa.

...and you were saying it sounded stupid...

I had already tried restarting before the reinstall but, restarted after reading your post anyway since I hadn't anything to lose and... well lets just say my computer is retarded u.u; it runs now

Glad its sorted :)

Being an IT worker myself you'd be surprised how many issues this solves! A lot of people assume it is suggested just because we don't know what else do to, but because of how computers work in terms of RAM caching and so forth switching off and on is quite effective!
