Crash on startup.

Post by Mobius » 16 Apr 2016, 05:03

Tried in both triplehead and single screen, game never launches - just dies the first time, and subsequent attempts to launch produce "BUILT WITH UDK has stopped working".

The small splash does show up, but that's it.

Rebooted the machine - same issue. UDK crash. :(


Edit - so I installed to Program Files as one should. (It's evil to put stuff in the root of C - I mean seriously!) and the game fails very ungracefgully when you do that - it should throw a permissions error, not just crash.

How many escape pods are there? "NONE, SIR!" You counted them? "TWICE, SIR!"

The installer, the readme and the Player's Manual all tell you not to install to Program Files because we know this issue can happen.
