Game fails to start
Since I've had this in my Steam library and I don't remember it (despite Steam saying I've played 4 hours) I thought I'd give it a whirl. Unfortunately, the game won't start.

Here's the entire log file:

Safe and dependant systems initialized
Database parsed

At first it was doing some funky screen mode switching but I set the resolution in my config file to my laptop's native resolution (1080p). Now the screen doesn't switch modes but the game still won't start. I've tried toggling both fullscreen and borderless window with no result.

I'm running Windows 10 build 171213-1610, 64 bit.

Any advice?

A few things that might cause problems and you might want to turn off: ATI tray tool's on-screen-display, triple buffering, and the Evolve client.

I have an NVidia card, triple buffering is turned off, and I don't even have Evolve installed.

Any other ideas? It's obviously crashing after parsing the database, but I don't know why.

Well if the logfile is accurate that means GameShared::init is crashing because right after that the version would print. Are you running the latest version (1.043)? Also, you could go into your user.cfg and change the value for logfile to 2 to make the logfile more accurate (it will save the file after every print). If you get it working you will want to change this back to 1.

The next thing of consequence is the graphics stuff getting setup. If this is causing a problem, you might want to update your graphics drivers and see if that helps.
