    I've got my new computer for a couple weeks now and I finally decided to play some Space Engineers.
    But when I start the game, it begins normally, but when It is done loading, I can't see it. My taskbar says it is running, but it doesn't display on my screen, so I cant do anything, even if it are my graphics setting, I can't change them.

    I'm have a Lenovo Y50-70, with a core i7 mobile processor, 16GB ram, gtx960m 4GB and a 4k 15.6" screen. I'm also using Windows 10.

    This is my log:

    Thanks for your help.

    download and install latest drivers from nvidia website, it should help.
  3. TheJelmega Trainee Engineer

    I've already upgraded to the latest NVidia driver, less than a couple hours ago, so It doesn't really seem to work.

    I upgraded to Win 10 and Latest Nvidia drivers. Same issue.

    this is super weird. There is no exception in the log itself. I would recommend verify the game cache and it is not helping reinstall the game. Thank you for report.

    I've tried both and it still doesn't work.

    EDIT: Found a solution:
    You have to go to %appdata%/Roaming/Space Engineers/ and than open SpaceEngineers.cfg

    Where it says:
    <Key xsi:type="xsd:string">GraphicsRenderer</Key>
    <Value xsi:type="xsd:string">DirectX 9</Value>

    You need to change '9' to '11' (without quotes)

    So I would like to request to take a look and see if it there is a possiblity that there is a part in the FAQ about this
