1) Create a shortcut to fm.exe.

View attachment 2618

2) Right click on the shortcut and choose Properties.

View attachment 2617

3) In the Target box add --reset_preferences and press OK.

View attachment 2616

4) Double click on the shortcut to run the game and it will reset the FM preferences stored on your game and fix the 'Black Screen' problem.

Sounds like you're making a typing error. Make sure you haven't deleted or mispalced the "'s by mistake.
