    Hey guy, does anyone here play Civ 5 on there 14' Blade. I can't seem to set the right graphic settings for the game as I keep getting this massive black letter box around the game. I have tried lowering the blades desktop settings as well yet no luck. Any help would be great !

    A screenshot would give more details but random black boxes suggests that it is a GPU issue either driver or hardware related or may be game related. So now the questions:
    1. Is it appearing in any other games?
    2. Is the game pirated? because if it is then it could be an issue with the crack.
    3. Is your driver up to date?

    Hey NazgulStig,

    I will try to get a screen shot for you later today. It is not appearing in other games for example counter strike scales fine at 1080p and even at higher settings with no black box. The only way I civ 5 was able to scale and fit the whole screen was if I changed the blades setting down to 1600 x 800 and changed the in game settings as well. I prefer to play at least at 1080p. The game is also not pirated and the drivers are up to date through the geforce app or am I missing something ?

    Ok, in mean time can you run Kombustor and do a stress test for at least 1 hour and see if you are getting any errors on the image like black boxes or any thing unusual?
    Can you do an integrity check via Steam? This can also be due to corrupt image assets.
    • Go to game properties by right clicking
    • Go to Local Files tab
    • Check Integrity of Game Cache
    Try this first and if that doesn't work then run Kombustor
