Possible Solutions for startup crash (worked for me)

Hi guys,

after trying out several solutions which not worked, I wrote to the Support once again this morning, attaching my mdmp file.

I got this reward:

Vincent - SEGA, 21 Feb, 10:29:


Please try to reset the TCP/IP status.

NOTE: You must be logged on to the computer as an administrator to perform the steps.

- On the Start screen, type CMD. In the search results, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

- At the command prompt, enter the following command, and then press Enter:

netsh int ip reset reset.txt

- Press Enter and use the second command after that:

netsh winsock reset

- Press Enter again

Now restart the computer and try the game again.

If it still doesn't run, please go to the following place (based on a default installation):
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Total War Attila\redist and re install the redistibutables that are within that folder


Please reinstall also direct x. Go inside the "directx" folder, double click on the "DXSETUP" executable to reinstall DirectX

Please let us know how you get on.

Best regards

I tried it out and it worked for me!
Hope this one will help ypu guys!

    Hello, I went through the above cmd option, re-installed the drivers and direct X, re-installed steam, re-installed the game. I've tried just about everything listed on this thread and others. I have no idea what to do now. I click the Play button from Steam or from the desktop shortcut and it just restarts back at the play button. The game crashes without sending any error messages.

    I've spent several hours trying to figure this out tonight and I'm pretty tired of it.

    Please help,

    I cant believe that actually worked. I have been struggling with starting my Rome 2 and Attila for a while now and now it works perfectly. You sir/madam rock!
