Title: When launching game only shows a black screen.
I have had this problem in previous versions, but it went away. I’m not sure if it was in one of the patches or something that changed on my computer. This latest patch (r41) has caused it to come back. Really unfortunate, I was dying to get a look at the new features. The game window opens, actually I had mine set to fullscreen so it opens a new screen, and all that is there is a black screen. The mouse pointer is there and it is the Stonehearth mousepointer. When I press space, I get the green quad arrow pointer, so game code is obviously running to some extent. As well, the steam “acceess the Steam community” window pops up in the bottom right. I’ve tried closing as many processes as I can to see if there is a conflict and I haven’t found a way to get it to work. I tried changing from beta to regular in steam and both don’t work.
Steps to reproduce:
- Start r41 steam version.
Expected Results: Game should show splash screen then start menu.
Actual Results: Game starts, but only as a black screen. Doesn’t crash or cause excessive CPU usage.

I’m really hoping there is something I can do to fix this. The fact that this problem happened before and fixed itself gives me hope. Like I said, I’m really dying to see these new features.
