Black screen issue

    The screen is black on startup but I can still hear sound.
    When I tab out and back in I can see the main menu.
    The screen goes black randomly during gameplay and at the moment is fully black as I am deploying my mech for the first time.

    I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling a few times, changing the vsync to false + fullscreen to false in the config file. I have tried running it in 32-bit and made sure my video card drivers are up to date.

    I do not have any mods installed. I uninstalled Discord so the overlay isn't an issue either.

    I am not really sure what else there is to do, and there doesn't seem to be anything I have found that works. Can anyone help me??

    The game seems to work fine on my laptop, but on my desktop I am having issues (my desktop has better specs). Problem is that my laptop overheats and crashes but that's a whole 'nother issue.
