Game opens up to a black screen

Need help installing the mod?
1 | 0
Hello I would greatly appreciate some help with an issue I have been having for a while now. The game has worked fine with an occasional issue here and there (Usually having to do with the mod starting), but previously I have always managed to find a solution. However this time I am well and truly puzzled, the game after the most recent update opens up to a black screen, with menu music in the background. Pressing anything besides the Esc key does not do anything, pressing the Esc key exits the whole thing. I have tried to look at every other solution I could find. Deleting the mod and reinstalling, deleting the root game and starting from scratch, deleting the preferences folder from the drive. Nothing seems to help. Is anyone having the same issue, and does anyone have any suggestions?
