Black screen in full screen with HDR and Vulkan (works with D3D12)

Hey. Since a couple of weeks back I can’t get HDR working in full screen, I only get a black screen. The game is running. I’m using exclusive fullscreen I had it working a while back and I’m not sure what caused it to stop working.

  • RA Build Date: 2022-12-03
  • Backend: Vulkan
  • OS: Windows 11 22H2
  • Graphics Card: Nvidia 3070 with driver 527.37 (didn’t work with previous driver either)

It seems to work with D3D12 as backend, so I’m guessing it could have something to do with the latest Nvidia drivers?

Has anyone else seen this?

Edit: Just because I made a post it’s working now. Seems that when I switched between D3D12 and then back to Vulkan made it work again, bug perhaps?


I’m having the same issue, on Windows 10. Switching to D3D12 and then back to Vulkan does not help, though.

Edit : quitting RetroArch while in black screen and then relaunching it, makes it work.


Kind of seems like we have (had) the same issue, but we solved it differently.

Ran into this issue just now. Your solution works, but if I switch back to window mode and then back to full screen it goes black and I need to restart. I’m running window 10 with Nvidia GTX 3060 Ti with vulkan driver.

Bug is still there as of July 2023
