Red Dead Redemption 2 HDR Fix - Blackscreen Fix


Recommended Posts

If you have recently bought a monitor with HDR and wanted to try it with Red Dead Redemption 2 , Well that's great it looks fantastic! but works not the same really sadly..

After first time you exit Red Dead Redemption 2 while it's set as HDR - ON , next time you try to enter you will receive a black screen

Fixing black screen after the intro videos:

You need to go to :

Documents > Rockstar Games > Red Dead Redemption 2 > Settings

Select system.xml file and edit the HDR VALUE to FALSE instead of TRUE , or simply switch HDR from your Windows to off , possible also to remove the file system.xml but that will make you have to reconfigure the settings from start.

Switching from Vulkan to DX12 fixes the problem entirely for me.

UPDATE: That will break Steam Overlay when you switch to DX12


The problem no longer occurs , seems that Rockstar has fixed it.

Seeding the net..
