Solution to problem "no picture, but sound on"

Recommended Posts

I have noticed this problem with Stronghold Crusader Extreme HD (same applies to Stronghold HD and Stronghold Crusader HD), and I managed to solve the issue. Luckily I had two PC's, and on one of them I didn't have this issue.



If you have a graphic card which allows you to have larger resolution than your monitor does, you will have a problem - you will hear the sound, but you will only see the black screen. In my case I was able to see the black screen and a message from my monitor which said "out of range". I assume that this meant that resolution got set to higher than my monitor could display.


SOLUTION: I downloads Crusader and Crusader Extreme on another computer which doesn't have this issue. It also set resolution to highest possible, but not too high like it was the case on the first PC. Then I changed the resolution to 1024x768, I let Steam upload the new settings to the cloud, and then I ran the game from my first PC. It downloaded the new settings from the cloud, and everything worked well then.

    • Problem When Posting Youtube Link

      Hi, I just wanted to point that, when I try to post a message with a YouTube link, I get the following message. Now, this message does not appear when I put the youtube link in the URL BB tag, it appears only when I just copy/paste the link. That's when the forum tries to embed the video into the post. I try posting the link in this topic. Not much of a problem, it's not important for me to embed the video into a post, I don't care about that at all. But still, I think it's important

    • AI in Multiplayer-solution for non-steam version - tested with v1.4.1

      AI in multiplayer - if you're still looking for "Stronghold 2 Manager"... For those of you that want AI back in the multiplayer so you can do co-op and can't find a solution, read on. The AI in multiplayer was removed from the non-steam version some time ago via a patch I believe. There was a solution using so-called "Stronghold2 Manager" some time back but that always showed up having viral content and was hard to find (and you had to trust...). I found this source code (Mod edit: link removed)

      I installed Gameranger and every time I try to join a multiplayer game for stronghold all it does is start up my game and take me to the main menu. That is all that happens. Am I missing something? Does it have something to do with windows 8? I would appreciate some help if anyone knows my problem window should be present.txt
