First load takes long. Especially on older machines. Be patient, it will show you the screen eventually.

BTW. Server list freezes, each time they add/modify server list.

Had the same issue at first, reloaded the game a couple of times and then it worked, but yea, you gotta be patient, load will take a while.

Took me about 1.5-2 mins first time, and I have a new PC with an SSD.

maybe your screen resolution is too high in game as on mine defaulted to 1600-900. if your monitor not good enough then screen will be black, only fix i know of is hdmi it into a hd tv and turn settings down, then start on normal monitor again hope this helped
