Black screen, only sound works

After launching the game from battle.net launcher you may find yourself with a black screen and the login screen music playing 


If you have this issue follow those steps:


  • In battle.net client general options disable  "Use browser hardware acceleration when available"
  • In battle.net client general options set the battle.net client to "Exit battle.net completely" in the "when I launch a game" field

You may need to restart the battle.net client. Your game should works now.
