Unity Unity 3D; Black Game View

I am using Unity 3D v. 3.5.6f4 with Vista Home Premium, 32 bit with SP2.

I have a game program with 3 levels. In two of these, the game view displays the camera view, however, in the other one, the game view is blacked out; in all cases the program is not in run mode. What would cause this anomalous behaviour?

Thanks Simon for your reply. Yes, there is a separate scene for each level. I don't know if its relevant, but the camera preview works fine in the scene view, it's just that the scene doesn't show up in the game view.

Best wishes

Have you added the scene to the build list properly ?

If you add the OnLevelWasLoaded method to a script on an object in the problematic scene and put a print statement in it, does it run ?

Thanks again Simon

Everything runs ok and the line from OnLevelWasLoaded prints when I load the problematic scene. However, the problem is not with running the game or with the executable, it's with the original scene, which should show in both the scene view and the game view before running the scene code (ie while developing the content).

Look at the main camera in your scene which should usually be under the character controller (your Player). Once you highlight this camera in the Project pane, it's gizmo should also become visible in the screen view, now you can use the regular move tool to drag it around, make sure it's not sitting inside of an object or is otherwise blocked. I'm just starting to learn Unity so I might not have understood your question properly, but hope this helps. Edited by VanillaSnake21

Thanks for this suggestion, VanillaSnake, but It's not the solution; the main camera works fine in the camera preview and isn't blocked by any other object.

Best wishes
