First off, allow us to apologize for our prolonged absence - we've had much to contend with and it's been a very exciting (and sometimes turbulent) year for us.

However, we are happy to announce the launch of a devblog for our new game, BEACON, a sci-fi action roguelike coming to PC. We know this might not be your cup of tea as it is very different from Black Snow, but give us a chance to impress you. And if it happens to be right down your alley, then by all means follow us along the development of the game and chime in to give your feedback as we create the product together!

Follow the development of the game alongside us here at our devblog. If you are curious about who "we" are, check out our website.

I also tried to repeat the passage of the little lighted corridor, but the crash happens as usual in the same moment a few seconds after the man is dragged away, just to see a door at the end of the corridor, always with the same system message, and I must stop the game, otherwise my pc stalls for several minutes with Task Manager equally stalled. Thank you very much.

Now I succeeded in starting Black Snow, and have been believing that the interferences during the initial short film were special effects of the mod, but at least the one, when the first victim is dragged away in a little lighted corridor, is certainly not a special effect, in fact, a few seconds after, the mod crashes with this message or something very similar (I'm italian and trying to translate it): (Dialog window title) HL2 has stopped functioning. (Message text) The search for a solution of the problem is in progress. Thank you very much.

Hi everyone, the first thing that I did was, in the following order, installing and extracting only Black Snow (full version 1.05) and Black Snow Key Fix 1, but it can't start with a big white rectangle in the midst of the screen and no menues or options to click on, while a Windows-7 system message says "Error! Can't find background image 'materials/console/blacksnow_menu1_widescreen.vtf'". Is there perhaps a/some missing file(s)?
I did not try starting the mod first of extracting Key Fix 1. ?Perhaps my system doesn't need the Fix?
Sorry for my English and thank you very much.

I have having issues myself.
Whenever I start the game, the intro plays through until the part where you are standing in a corner it seems like and you are looking at a push open door. But once it goes to the next static screen, the game just crashes without a error report...
Anyone be willing to help?

yes, applying the gameinfo.txt fix and using the console command "mat_dxlevel 85" before starting a new game, everything works just fine, with one exception; all the ice textures look strange. With mat_dxlevel 95 (default) the ice textures all look good, only the game will crash shortly afterward. [sigh]

oh well, since the ice textures are the only problem, I would say that this is a very clever mod story. Still can not get past the navigation map ending the game with the character's death,... seems I am missing something?

Doubt it, considering there hasn't been a word from the developers in nearly a year. A bugfix is what we all need most though, especially now.

For anyone having problems with starting the game, use mfpwnsall's link to get the fixed Gameinfo.txt. This should let you start the game and play it up to the intro movie, following which it usually crashes.

To fix this, before starting the game open up the console and type in "mat_dxlevel 85"; though this lowers the graphics, so far its seems to be the only way to make the mod playable. (Thanks to: Steamcommunity.com)

Black Snow NAILS atmosphere and makes you feel vulnerable and alone. As a part of a rescue team dispatched to a research complex in the middle of the tundra. You end up separated, chased and all but you remain. With dark hallways and the ominous presence of something unknown lurking in the shadows and no way to defend yourself, the true sense of making you feel afraid is done right. You must avoid a darkness out to kill you by using light, and solve many puzzles that will test your ability to think…

Lowest Rated (7 agree) 5/10

The mod started off well enough, you got tension and mystery. You had to explore well and it gave you a indication of what you can pick up. The annoyance starts with this arbitrary light switching that makes zero sense why it changes like that, and if your left in the dark you end up being chased around and stuck inside a room with that thing right outside, forcing you to reload without a chance. It moves really fast so you end up dying without a fighting chance as soon as you make a mistake. Then…
