Blackreach lifts to skyrim broken

Post » Sun May 05, 2013 4:10 am

Ended up in blackreach. Tried leaving through two different lifts. When getting to the top of the lift I would see the exit door then screen would go blank. Background noise would still play. No buttons seemed to work while the screen was black. Tried to run forward. Not enough time before the screen would go black. Tried a dragon shout whirlwind sprint. It seemed to work as I was out but the screen went black and I was respawned back inside the lift room. The only thing I found to work was turning off all autosaves. The screen still went black a couple times but i was able to get out. The lifts had worked the last time I was in blackreach. I don't know what triggered the problem.

Hope Bethesda can fix this before they put skyrim to bed. Anyone else here have this issue as of the last patch?

I've had that issue several times, and it existed before patch 1.9. The one thing that fixed this for me was: In the two sec that your screen isn't black, and you see the world, press (i believe it was) up on the D-pad, so opening the favorites menu. This stopped the black screens for me.
