Crash following legal page, before any intro movie/AMD logo

mawer23mawer23 Registered Users Posts: 1
Hi there,

I've just downloaded Warhammer on my new PC, and I haven't been able to play it even once. Upon pressing play the launcher loads up fine, however upon trying to load the game I am unable to proceed past the first legal page, being unable to reach any of the further screens such as the AMD screen, SEGA screen, or intro movie.

I have no crash_report/minidump files in the C:\Users\rmawe\AppData\Roaming\The Creative Assembly\Warhammer, nor do I have scripts in C:\Users\rmawe\AppData\Roaming\The Creative Assembly\Warhammer\scripts

As I've been unable to play it on this computer I also have no campaign/multiplayer/replay files saved. It's been very frustrating as I've yet to find a fix on any of the forums/SEGA/TotalWar help areas.

Any help is appreciated!

(below are screenshots of the launcher working, the only screen that loads, then the crash/error message. Also is a screenshot of the files which show that there is no crash_report file)

    Unfortunately your graphics card does not meet the minimum system requirement as it does not have the capacity to run DirectX11, nor sufficient dedicated Video memory.

    From the Steam Store page:
    OS: Windows 7 64Bit
    Processor: Intel® Core™ 2 Duo 3.0Ghz
    Memory: 3 GB RAM
    Graphics: (DirectX 11) AMD Radeon HD 5770 1024MB | NVIDIA GTS 450 1024MB | Intel HD4000 @720P
    DirectX: Version 11

    Storage: 35 GB available space
    Additional Notes: *PC Integrated graphics chipsets require 4 GB RAM, e.g. Intel HD series.
