Not Solved RE: Penumbra: Overture 1.1 Black screen

Those "no version" warning always occur with nvidia's CG library. It is simply because they don't explicitly specify a version. e.g. everyone sees those.

Can you send me your HPL.log file (~/.frictionalgames/Penumbra/Overture/hpl.log )

that is odd.. you can either remove the ~/.frictionalgames/Penumbra/Overture/settings.cfg or edit it in a text editor to change the Screen resolution.

owh i misunderstood the game setting indicate that the game will start in that resolution and full screen
when i looked into the setting file and change the full screen to false the game started but the mouse will not be in the game so i want it to be full screen.
