Default Black Screen error upon launch


I've downloaded the game through torrent last night, installed it this morning, and when I launched it, I simply got a black screen which would most likely last forever. I've turned down the settings, and the second time I've launched it, same thing happened, however when I opened up the task manager the game sound ran, and I could actually go in-game and connect to a server, I had a low framerate so I quit the game to adjust my settings to the lowest possible.

I kept getting black screens every time I launch the game, tried a few "fixes" however nothing worked, I re-installed directx and c++, I have 4.5 net framework, and I also checked if firewall is blocking it, which it isn't.

I've also tried running the game in windowed mode, I get the endless spinning circle and if I click a few times, it crashes the game, with no error except "stopped running".

Could anyone please help out? Was hyped to play the game.

Check C:\Games\Project Reality\mods\pr\bin\PRLauncher.log if it logged any errors.
Also make sure no anti virus or firewall is blocking communication between prbf2.exe and prlauncher.exe

Mineral: TIL that Wire-guided missiles actually use wire

I already talked with him on Discord and he can't even launch prbf2.exe without the launcher.

My bad on not replying here.

I let the game run on the black screen for a minute or two and it actually loaded, everything works fine now, thanks.
