Check your mods.  There's another thread over in the support section.  Seems to be related to the carousel.

I have an AMD card and am seeing the game just fine. If you have a NVIDIA card you might try rolling back to an older driver version.

I checked the support forum. It's the extended port carousel mod. Removed it and everything booted up no problem. If anyone else has this issue, that's the fix.

I just reinstalled Aslain's modpack and made sure the carsousel extension was unchecked.  Works fine for me.

Make sure you don't reinstall/use the carousel extension mod.  That's the issue.

I have a NVIDIA card and I'm on the latest driver.  It's the carousel extender mod.  Just uninstalled that one mod and the game loads fine now.

Same.  Removed Extended Carousel from the Modstation pack and it worked.

Then you may not have removed the mods correctly/completely.  The issue is with the carousel extender.  Which modpack do you use?

Aslain's and I know how to remove it. I was not even using the carousel mod at all. Just going to reinstall the game. Ran game check and still had issue.

Ok.  Well, I reinstalled Aslain's mod this morning, made sure I unchecked the carousel extender and Poof!  I was loading fine.  I guess your problem is unique then since everyone else also had issues with the carousel extender.

He is not the only one. I was using same mod pack and had to do a full reinstall. I think the mod pack messed up a file somewhere that just removing the mod did not fix. The reinstall fixed it.

I am not getting the black screen but I only update my graphics drivers if there is something that benefits one of the games/programs I use so I am running an ancient driver. The newest drivers are not always the best drivers.

I don't run the extended port mod.  Most days when I first launch the game I get a black screen and it just sits there.  I stop the process and then relaunch and it is slow but then it launches.

One in 5 launches it just goes black, force quit relaunch starts it properly.  I'm running drivers 2 releases back.
