Crash on startup

ElicasElicas Senior MemberRegistered Users Posts: 218
Echoing other peoples comments regarding the crash on start up, this is especially disappointing for me, since I only bought the game yesterday in the 25% steam sale.

Can confirm I have the most recent up to date Nvidea drivers, I do NOT have any mods installed, and the only DLC I have is the White Dwarf.

Windows 7 64 bit.
CPU - I7 6700k @ 4.00GHz.
GPU - GTX 1060 @ 6mb.
8gig RAM @ 2666mhz.
Asus Z170 pro gaming MB.

I've verified the cache, tried the alt-tab work around, and reinstalled the game. Nothing works. I get to the launcher, press play, nothing happens, the game doesn't even fire up, just an instant crash.

    If u have razer synapse on your pc then turn it off compelety before u start warhammer total war, for me and a few others that seems to have been causing the start up crashes, after i turned off razer synapse = no crash at all, can open the game freely as before, give it a try, you can turn razer back on after the game has fully started :smile:

    Is your Windows 7 updated to Service Pack 1?
