Hello! I just moved to a new computer (running windows 10) and now I can't get marble blast to launch properly. It opens to a black screen now. I know it's at least running because I can interact with the menu, I just can't see anything. I've tried the previous recommendations, but I don't seem to have a "prefs.cs" so instead I've been editing the default.cs located in that same folder, although that hasn't helped. Here's what the video section of defaults looks like now

$pref::Terrain::DynamicLights = 1;
$pref::Interior::TexturedFog = 0;
$pref::Video::displayDevice = "OpenGL";
$pref::Video::allowOpenGL = 1;
$pref::Video::allowD3D = 0;
$pref::Video::preferOpenGL = 1;
$pref::Video::appliedPref = 0;
$pref::Video::disableVerticalSync = 1;
$pref::Video::monitorNum = 1;
$pref::Video::resolution = "800 600 32";
$pref::Video::windowedRes = "800 600";
$pref::Video::fullScreen = "0";

Any tips?

Have you tried setting fullscreen to 1? Sometimes that has helped with black screens.
