Since 1.0 came out, I cannot play the game, I just get a black screen.

To try and fix this, I have followed the troubleshooting steps, I have uninstalled and reinstalled, I have tried the new Beta release, I have ran it as an admin. Nothing works, and since it does not "crash" I have no logs.

Also I updated the Video drivers, audio drivers, ensured Windows 10 was updated, etc. Confused as to why it worked pre 1.0, then failed once 1.0 came out.

Looking for other ideas to try.

Thanks

Thanks for posting @Robiton.

For reference this continues from this bugs thread on the Steam forum.

And you already read this related thread, right? Including django's suggestion in this comment:
Indeed it appears there is an issue initialising your FMOD (audio) device.
Code:
SystemNotInitializedException: FMOD Studio initialization failed : Calling initialize : ERR_OUTPUT_INIT : Error initializing output device.
Try these:

It could be there is an issue with the AudioSrv service in Windows.
1) Open TaskManager.
2) Go to the Services tab.
3) Find 'AudioSrv' in the list, right click and Restart it.

Then restart the game and see if that helped.
If that didn't help, try

1) Open current sound playback device properties.
(Type 'Sound' in windows start menu. Select the device and click Properties.)
2) On the Enhancement tab, see if immediate mode is switched on. If it is, disable it.
Now try running the game again and see if it solved the problem.

Alternatively you can try letting Windows solve it by running "Find and fix audio playback problems" from the start menu.
Let us know if that solves your issues.

Thanks Robiton; sorry to hear you're having issues launching the game.

Even though there is no crash log, the game still produces a 'regular' log of important happenings while running. This may also include an indication why yours is not starting.
Please refer to this post about where to find the logs.

Spoiler: Where to find the game logs


If you upload them here we can have a look and hopefully find a way to solve your issues.
