View Full Version : Game Launcher fails at start of game

03-01-2010, 03:45 AM
I downloaded this game from steam when my friend pointed out it was under $30. But once I tried to play it it went through the opening cinematic then back to the title name then goes black and then I get this error...

"Game Launcher has encountered a problem and needs to close..."

This is the second time I've bought a game on steam and it just doesn't work at all.

Please help me fix this issue.

I get exactly this same problem. The game ran fine before I rebuilt my PC, with windows 7, a gtx 470 and 6gb of ddr3. I have dx11, the latest drivers, and very little else installed that might be interfering. Support would be appreciated greatly.

I've check the version directly on the exe file and it's still on is it possible that steam forgot to patch?

I had the same problem, You'll have to set Your Desktop resolution to 1280 by 1024 to get it past the start-up screen

This has worked for me, as well.
