The game worked just a few months ago. Now, I can’t get past the main menu. Since then I’ve changed firewalls, but due to some debugging I am doing the firewall is completely open at the mo.
From the main menu, nothing seems out of the ordinary. I can wander in and out of menus and change options. But upon clicking multiplayer, the loading screen comes up for a couple of seconds and then insta-crash without any change, warning or error message.
- GPU drivers updated today
- Game cache verified
- Firewall should allow the connections (but which ports can I add to make totally sure?)
- Tried changing resolutions and switching from fullscreen to windowed fullscreen, as was suggested on reddit for a similar problem
- Found 3 instances of micropatch.bak (in DLC folders 3 and onwards) and deleted them, as per this thread: Main Menu Multiplayer CTD (Crash to Desktop)
I wouldn’t think hardware is an issue, but here are the specs:
Radeon HD 7800
Running W7 64bit
