Base Screen doesn't work

Just installed with new DLC to check it out. Can’t use base screen for some reason. Also cinematics no longer play.

Verified integrity of files using steam, everything A-ok that way. Am I the only person who’s encountered this?

Edit: apparently old mods I had were still functioning despite the game just being freshly installed. I wouldn’t have expected that. Don’t understand how that works. - still, cinematics don’t work though. Black screen, no sound.
