I read through that thread but no solid fix for the black screens. Best post was from JayJay:

That would be like a "hit and miss". Currently on the one that works for me [multiMAN version r435] has 38 shaders. Now I am gonna install this latest version and see how many shaders that one has.
Okay, r486 has 88 shaders. Which should I start deleting? Should I delete all the extra ones that r435 doesn't have?
Going from your hint on the default shader, I deleted the following three shaders:
Now the emulators works for kmeaw 3.55. But I am still not certain which of the three is the one that perhaps causes the issue--anyone? I think someone should fix the issue with the default shader.
Okay, had trouble loading a ROM. Seems that it chooses another default shader [3xBR-v2.1.cg], which causes it to be very slow. My preferred shader is 4xsoft-hd.cg. After I switched to my shader, my games load fine now.
I'm loving the feature where now it remembers my Aspect Ratio "Custom" setting. Love that. Now all my games fill my screen perfectly!
