    When I run the game in fullscreen it flashes black. Checked drivers, Checked incompatible software, Reinstalled game, Not running any mods. Attached Dxdiag

    This seems familiar. The monitor you are playing on is probably a TV, right? In windowed mode you don't get flashing? And for full screen, the flashing stops if you alt-tab to a windowed application such as your browser, right? By that, I mean that PA continues running in full-screen behind the windowed application without the flashing.

    If so, this seems to be a quirk with either Windows or the drivers where it's sending the television a refresh rate it does not support, which results in flashing. Sometimes this can be fixed by fiddling with the TV settings, but since those are different for every brand/model, I'm not sure where to even look for. You can also try looking at the driver settings and see if there is a way to force a refresh rate per app.
