Hello, I am going to post my issue here as it is more or less identical to the problem which AnonCollector has.
Also sorry in advance for wall of text.
I have played Pre-Stage 2 without any kind of problems before and I could play Stage 2 without a problem for 2 days until yesterday when I finished the round, when the screen where the spaceship flies away and the game froze.
I thought the game crashed and tried to go to the task manager so that I could terminate the process but that didn’t work as the system did not respond, so I did what anyone would do, a hard reset of my pc.
I continued to boot up my pc and try to start evolve, the game started (Running in both steam and in the Process list) and launched a black screen and as soon as the screen came it went, it terminated immediately. So I tried a couple of times again but with the same result.
I thought maybe that the game bugged when the game/computer froze at the round ending/reward screen and corrupted a file on my pc, so I continued to first verify game cache but with the same result. Then I tried to reinstall and yet again the same result.
I started to google for any persons with similar problems as the one I have but surprisingly few had this exact same problem (At least not that I could find).
In the end I came to the forum and found this thread, I have tried what @TheMountainThatRoars wrote and recommended but I still have the exact same problem, tried looking for missing dlls as well and reinstalling DirectX, vcredist. Currently updating to Windows 10 in hope that this will fix the problem. If that doesn’t work I am considering reinstalling Windows completely.
(Noticed I have an “error.dmp” file in the evolve folder, I am assuming that this is the error dump. Can send if needed.)
I Appreciate any and all help I can get. Will update post if something changes.
Sorry if I am making a mistake in this post.
