Welcome to the forum, @Firevex :slight_smile:

What are your system specs? (CPU, RAM, OS, Graphic card…)

Have you tried updating your drivers from your manufacturer’s website? On this page if you scroll down a bit you can see links to different official websites where you can find the graphic drivers: Some Technical Stuff – Stonehearth

Besides this, have you tried reinstalling the game (by deleting the Stonehearth folder manually)?
It looks like it’s having trouble finding the files.

Sounds like you should go to the game folder and delete user_settings.json and not check the full-screen option next time you start te game

It’s a Steam problem, i direct downloaded the game and now it works

Yes, it seems to be fault of Steam: Failed to Start Game (Missing Executable) - Specific Error Messages - Knowledge Base - Steam Support

I wonder if running from the game folder instead of launching from Steam would have worked.
In any case, blackscreens seem to happen because of security software. You can check if you have any of these programs running in the background:

If it’s your antivirus fault, you might want to add an exception for the game.
