SolvedCant launch due to mod manager bug

edited March 2 in Crashes
When trying to install some new mods today off the Steam Workshop for TWWH2, upon opening the launcher the play button doesnt work. When I open the mod manager tab it just spins, like it's refreshing, but doesn't load the mods, making it impossible to launch the game. I've tried everything I can think of to fix this. I've unsubbed from all mods on steam, I've deleted and re-installed the launcher, I've completely uninstalled and reinstalled the game, nothing has worked. Any more ideas would be huge help.

    At least it's fixed. I'll mark the matter Solved.

    In the post after the OP he says

    "appdata folder was hidden, revealed hidden, deleted the launcher folder in roaming, immediately worked. "

    what is a roaming

    Roaming is a sub-foldler of Appdata, which is a system folder (often hidden) that CA uses to hold the game's settings. It is not normally deleted when you uninstall the game. To access it you may need to enable Show Hidden Files and Folders.

  • Rhyder71Rhyder71 Posts: 6Registered Users
    I deleted the launcher folder in roaming but it came back

    The folder will recreate itself with default data once you launch again. Deleting the folder only realy clears out out-of-date or corrupted data.

    Have you cleared your Steam download folder?

    Ok had this launcher issue after the recent prophet & warlock update. What worked for me is what they are tell us to do. Go to your user name in your main drive. Google "how to show hidden folders". or just this folder URL: C:\Users\'your user name'\AppData\Roaming\The Creative Assembly and delete the 'Launcher" folder. All was well after that.
