Game background is black

You are here:

The black background issue is related to ETS2\ATS launched with OpenGL rendering engine (with startup parameters -rdevice gl) on NVidia graphic cards.


To fix it run the game using DX11.


This is a know issue caused from Overwolf and strictly related to the recording engine but unfortunately, as Overwolf is using the OBS recording engine, the black background is a side effect. Fixing the black background with OpenGL, the recording engine will stop to work.

As documented here, OBS has a know problem with OpenGL and works better with DX11: https://obsproject.com/forum/threads/obs-studio-does-not-capture-euro-truck-simulator-2.55445/
