Yeah, I'm getting that black screen with audio too.
While we're talking bugs, I'm going to take this opportunity to mention a few I have been experiencing lately... my daily contracts are no longer affected by matchplay, the first game I play after booting the game there is no ship selection before the match. Sometimes while maneuvering, if directional keys are being held, I'm unable to access either a module or an energy use. Lobby chat only works if I have switched between English and Global and after I've cancelled a matchmaking. Hopefully I'm not being redundant and I'm confident that efforts are being made to make the game run appropriately.
PS: Yes I've heard of discord. Happy script editing, thanks guys.
