Keeps Crashing at Startup

QQ

Game unlocked. Verified cache. Keeps crashing startup.

Edit: I got the game to work after updating my video drivers, and verifying the cache a few times. After I did all that, when I started Brink steam installed some DirectX files (never saw that before) and the game worked. Note: I had to delete a file from the brink install for Steam to realize something was missing when verifying, then it works. Brink did crash when I exited the game though, which I didn't mind as much as crashing when it started.

Can you describe the crashes you're seeing and provide your system specs?

Trying to run this thing with 12GB of ram, an intel 990x and a 5970. Set various safe launch options but still a load, followed by an immediate crash to desktop.

EDIT: running windows 7 64bit.

2.20 Quad (phenom) 4 gb ram ATI Radeon 4800. Windows 7 32 bit. Crash's instantly.

Edit: Weird, I launched it for the 20th or so time and now steams installing the directX files.
Edit 2: Didn't fix it, however.

Guys, this game uses OpenGL. At the moment, it appears that if you are forcing triple buffering through your card, it'll crash the game at start up. So make sure you aren't forcing triple buffering through the card. Fixed the problem for me.
