To run with admin privileges, right clic on game's executable and choose "Run as administrator".I’m using Windows 10, I’m not sure of how to run it with admin privilegues, and I’m guessing VGA is the graphics card?
I don't know if you have resolved this issue or not but :
1. Folder location :
Try moving the game folder to your desktop and running it from there.
The RPG engine acts really weird if you're running the game within several subfolders.
2. How much RAM do you have?
Depending on how the game loads/stores files if you have low memory you'll be greeted with a black screen until all the assets are loaded.
3. By any chance are you running the game on a laptop ?
Developers use a lot of plugins with the RPG engine and several of those plugins look at your screen resolution.
Most Laptops have weird screen resolutions compared to a desktop computer.
So depending on if the game developer exported the build so that the game auto opens the game @fullscreen this could result in the game not opening in fullscreen due to the screen resolution which causes the blackscreen.
4. Have you tried other RPGMV games?
If they run then I may have some other ideas.
So, you have 8GBs of memory in your laptop you're trying to run MNL? Have you checked how much you have free memory available for it?? Check if there's some programs running on background eating memory down to under 2GBs available. And, of course, don't have anything else running same time with MNL. Better turn off Internet connection too especially if you have any HP/Dell/Acer/other manufacturer installed auto-update-crap-installing-program still on and in use. Not to mention memory consumption of Windows and especially its auto-Update . Also, make sure there's no updates waiting for installation. In other words: Choose Install Updates and Restart from Power -button in lower left corner. And if you have both integrated graphics chips and separate gpu in your laptop, check if there's something. For example integrated and separate are both in use same time which causes unneeded loss of ram memory as graphics should be taken care by gpu's memory not ram...
And finally: Make sure you've updated all drivers up-to-date...
