Game crashes when trying to start a singleplayer campaign

StormyvilStormyvil Registered Users Posts: 3
Detailed description: Game crashes when trying to launch a new campaign. The load bar reaches about 25% before the game freezes and crashes. Custom battles work fine.

Details of any solutions that have already been attempted: I've removed mods, updated drivers and reinstalled the entire game.

I was looking forward to trying out the new content, guess I won't. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Rather than disabling mods try removing them entirely, manually if necessary.

    I have done that before reinstalling the game. I've noticed that the campaign works once, before I activate any mods. After that, even if I disable all of them, the campaign will no longer start.

    Therefore, I have to reinstall it again to play without mods. Once I enable any mod, the game breaks and the campaign will no longer work.

    I've never ran into something like this and I've been playing with a lot of mods.

    I have found out that some mods activate themselves. Even if you disable all mods, some might still be somehow activated. Therefore causing the crash.

    I suggest removing all mods on Steam and removing them manually. After that, subscribe only to those mods that you know 100% work.
