Private match of 2 - black screen for both + crash

Recommended Posts

I was playing with a friend and we tried to do a private match.

First time we got past the cut scene and both of us got a black screen.

My friend's game crashed outright; completely locked requiring alt+f4.  Mine let me press esc so I returned to main menu.

Tried again, same result black screen and we gave up in favor of a pub match.

Is this a known bug?  I forgot to report it right away but if it's known the probably not worth bothering.

I think he was "host" who invited me so might be internet, but he was able to invite for pub match just fine.

Never done a private match with 2 people before but that doesn’t sound right, could swear seeing a twitcher do a 3 people lobby once in a private match with no crashes.

I’ll test this out later today and let you know if my game breaks, too.

Private Match for Two

Sounds like the title of the ballad that's gonna be on the F13 The Game soundtrack.

 

P.S. I've done a private match with just 2 people.

@WashingtonJones It's "Private match OF two"  not FOR two. 

Anyway, idk it let us ready and started automatically so I guess it can work?  *SHRUG*

Just wanted to 1v1 is all.  My friend is 16 and like to do the machismo thing of always one upping me and everyone else.

I'm >2.5x his age so I usually do not indulge him those urges but in this case...

 

So I take it the black screen is not common?

Either way it still sounds romantic.

It's common. Private matches have never been stable for me on PC.
But it is possible to do a 1v1 in a private match. It just might not work. 

This game has more bugs than Times Square

Then it sounds like the bug is merely letting us ready up and the match starting with only two players as much as the black screen result.

I mean if it's not possible for only two people to play then it should say "not enough players" and refuse to start.

Of course and that is random.  Expected to have one of us as Jason and the other a counselor but... as I said black screen...

He is in Washington State, I'm in Houston, TX. 

So what 2-3k miles as the crow flies?

Yeah, I think we both have Jason as preferred instead of random for either or too which probably is

something not being trapped by the algorithm that sets who is who in a 1v1.  Just a guess.

If it were working correctly it should have either not let us ready or made us both set for random automatically.

 

My friend has been busy w/ school so we have not tried to play again.

Probably get to it over the weekend.

It would be cool if you could have random offline bots join in case of only two people.

Would solve the issue...
