Stage 2: Can't use Main Menu

An image of what I’m seeing with the small window included:

Simply put no part of the menu interacts with my cursor, at all.
I can right click but all that brings up is a small window that asks to either “print”(?) or to view source and I can also press “Q” to try out battle cabot but due to the aforementioned problem I can’t get past support select.

I tried renaming my settings.xml in the USER/profiles/default folder as that was a solution given before but this also didn’t fix it.

Any ideas as to why this happens and how to fix it?

First, verify the game cache integrity and we’ll go from there.

Also, if you’re using the GTX experience app, disable it for S2.

Files are validated and anything relating to GTX Experience is closed through task manager, what next?

Still having the issue I take it?

Yep :confused:

Okay, let’s try this

If there is any doubt about your installation of DirectX, install the latest version from Microsoft. Better safe than sorry!

Patch DirectX and VcRedistr from within the game’s folders

C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\EvolveGame\Game_CommonRedist\DirectX\DXSETUP.exe


C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\EvolveGame\Game_CommonRedist\Vcredistr (go in every folder and run every program)

Re-patched DirectX and VcRedistr from the games folders as stated and relaunched the game.
The problem is still there.

One more try

Nope, still unable to interact with the menu even after doing that. >.<
Gotta assume I’ll need to do a full re-install?


Turns out that I just forgot to update my drivers.

Sorry for the hassle <.>
