Dragon Quest VIII black screen?
#1
So when first got to Empycchu everything was fine but once I talked to the mayor to initiate the part where you have to follow the godbird's shadow, the moment you leave the town the entire screen is black. Every other continent the images load up but its just that particular continent that the screen turns black on. Help?

Try loading from a memory card instead of a save state.

My two cents, the devs should have a box that pops up the first time a save state is made or loaded saying savestates can cause problems and make them check a box to have it not appear again, no idea how hard it would be, But i feel it could eliminate a lot of these questions

It does not have anything to do with save states if you load from a regular save, in fact I have never encountered a pcsx2 save state related bug myself.

You could also try to switch between DX9 and DX11 in gsdx, or press F9 to use software mode. DX9 often causes small graphical glitches witch certain weapons / objects becoming black in this game.

Why not load your save state (dont talk to the chief) and do a normal save in Empycchu and then load your normal save? That will resolve it if it is a savestate issue.
