How long did you wait for it to load? I'm not sure that you loaded correctly. Did it say "Loading map" in giant red letters?

What are your system specs?

same stuff here. black screen.
Oh. Turned out that camera was off the map and was facing wrong direction.
Try moving the mouse along the black screen with left mouse button pressed till you see anything

Near the bottom right corner it should have a little tab thing that says no camera/work camera.
It should be on the right above the timeline thing, click it and it should take you to the middle of the map :)
If not,im sorry. im pretty new to sfm.

Custom Phase and absterdamn both have the right idea, sometimes the map is loaded "off-screen" particularly if you load a map after having opened a new project from a previous one.
