How to Fix Among Us Stuck on Black Screen Start Up Crash Error?

To fix the issue where Among Us gets stuck on a black screen at start-up, there are two things that you can try. The first one is to switch out of the game and then come back. In other words, press Alt + Tab to switch to a different window, then hit the same keys again to return. This should work. If it doesn’t, there’s another thing you should attempt. Namely, this black screen thing can be an issue with resolution. So, you have to go into Windowed Mode by pressing Alt + Enter. If the game starts working properly, hit the same keys again to go back to Fullscreen Mode.

If neither of these solutions work, you just have to restart the game and hope for the best. Restarting Steam entirely might also help, but we can’t guarantee it will. Now, mind you, these fixes are only for PC. They only apply for when you boot the game up and it gets stuck on the black screen, but you still hear the menu music. If you encounter the black screen on Android or iOS, then that’s a completely different problem. We’re not sure how to fix the black screen on mobile devices, unfortunately, aside from restarting the app until it works.

So, that’s how you fix Among Us getting stuck on the black screen at start up. If you have some solution for the black screen while playing Among Us on Android and iOS, let us know in the comments. Just keep it civil.

    Hi! Thanks for the tutorial but unfortunately it doesnt worked for me. Ive tried a lot of times, reinstalled the game, etc… nothing! Sometimes its the black screen with sounds, other times a transparent screen. Any hint? I have a very old PC… windows 7 starter, pentium dual core 2.3ghz and a 2gb ram. I think is enough for Among Us, isn’t? Thanks!

    Once I start a game and push the start button it will say starting in 5,4… and then my screen will go black and takes me to the home screen of my phone. I play on an iPhone five and i tried deleting some pics and a few apps that I won’t use but that’s apparently not the problem any advice? Thanks.

    Solution for android atm is to click the beta button in google play. The beta version changes from this bug to other bugs, but mostly lets you play!
