Recently I experienced the Black Screen of Death on SE. (Which was, when loading SE, I could never see the menu screen). Reading the forums, the solution I seem to have found was to delete the main-user.cfg file and re-start the program, which would make a new version of the file. I also believe the Black Screen issue when starting SE, was caused by me taking control of a space-craft in a previous session and not setting the Reference Object correctly. Since having removed the old main-user.cfg file, the Black Screen issue is no longer a problem, plus I can see comets, and interestingly enough, SE now plays music all the time, which it never did before.
But now I have another new problem. Most, but not all (90%) of locations I save, when returning to it, leaving me floating in empty space. The object that I had saved is usually a few AU away. But since I am saving these locations as positions I want to start filming a video while in game, I never get to start where I left off. Locations that I saved prior to the Black Screen issue are all there, and a select few that I saved after removing the file do return me to the proper place and time.
I guess I just want to do a new install. But of course I would like to save all the locations and planet names I've made and import them into a new install, if possible. What is the best course of action to fix this? Thanks!
(One other note: I noticed my clock said the year 7 billion or something. I never reset it to current time, until after having this problem. Resetting it to current time did not help.)
