Game Will Not Start

hollis123hollis123 Posts: 3Registered Users
Recently bought a decent gaming PC and bought this game to go with it. But it wont work - When I hit 'Play' all that happens is that on the Steam 'Library' screen the game briefly registers as 'Running' and that's it.

I have reinstalled the game, twice verified the integrity of the game cache, and I have had no change in the situation.

Any help would be much appreciated as I am completely lost for what to do now.

    Maybe it is because you didn't download the redists.
    For Attila, you need Microsoft Visual C++2008 Redistributable-x86, Microsoft Visual C++2010 x86 Redistributable, Microsoft Visual C++2013 Redistributable(x64), Microsoft Visual C++2013 Redistributable(x86), Microsoft Visual C++2015 Redistributable(x64), and Microsoft Visual C++2015 Redistributable(x86).
    Download all of those, it works for me when I had the same problem with you.

    This worked for me after trying absolutely everything else. Only had 4/6 of those files. I love you and will bear your children.

    For me installing VCRedist 2013 was enough. Strange, the game is shipped with VCRedist 2015.
