Crash at launcher


My game is crashing at the launcher. I tried searching for countless hours but to no avail! I have windows 10. Heres the log.

What is your GFX card?


NVIDIA Geforce GTX 750, 2GB (2048MB) of Video Ram.


Update video drivers and try changing the game screen resolution in Options.


Also try this:

as it could be that you don’t have the correct DX9 libraries.


Did both and still nothing.


When was the last time you played that it worked? Have you installed anything new?


well over 2 months ago. Did a few fresh installs of the game. Biggest thing that happened to my computer was a full factory reset.


Did you install the latest gfx card drivers after that reset? Have you tried to run the game in windowed mode at 1280x720?


tried that already as well. sorry for the late response!


And you’ve tried full screen? Just checking


it only gives me a windowed and borderless option.


I cant start the game.

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

WRN: Assembly binding logging is turned OFF.
To enable assembly bind failure logging, set the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog] (DWORD) to 1.
Note: There is some performance penalty associated with assembly bind failure logging.
To turn this feature off, remove the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog].

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging

For example:

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.


This should solve the issue:
