Game fails to launch?

#1 Posted by RobotHamster (4177 posts) -

Was seeing if any has encountered to problem or knows of a solution. I've looked around and see a few people have had the same issue but no real fix. When I hit play it'll say first time setup and then nothing. I verified game cache and stuff and nothing. So before I go reinstalling I was hoping someone had any ideas, thanks!

Some more information would help, pc specs, any error messages you got, that sort of thing.

@buft: I've got a Radeon HD 6870, 8gb of ram, i5 2500k and i just installed windows on a new ssd like two days ago. No error messages and everything else works fine, from what I found it seems to be a missing file or something that happens to some people. It may be fixed in an update but it's not certain, it's very weird.

@buft: Well it's working now, when installing another game it downloaded directX which I guess is what Chivalry needed.
