UDK.exe crashes on startup



  • Each time I try and start Chivalary: Medieval Warfare UDK.exe crashes. I have tried the various methods related to start-up crashes found in the forums and haven’t had any success yet.

    Oddly enough, I can play the beta version of the game which downloaded as well when I bought Chivalary during the holiday sale. But there is only one server I can see on the beta version.
    Any help would be appreciated, Fun game from playing the beta and the free weekends back when they were offered.
    Its also no letting me upload my Log file… calling it an invalid file in the attachments section



  • I am having the same problem.

    I just purchased it and was excited to play, but the game crashes right as I see the logo.

    Logs: https://www.dropbox.com/s/zmfpj1marnrkds9/Logs.zip

    I looked in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\chivalrymedievalwarfa re\UDKGame\ and could not find a specific “Config” or “Log” file. There is a config folder, but no file. I have nothing in there that says Log either. These are from another post I did when they were actually available.

    I have tried all solutions on the giant list and none have worked.



  • Hi,

    You can post the launch.log file here with CODE tags (http://forums.tornbanner.com/misc.php?do=bbcode#code)

    I assume you’ve tried reverifying the game cache in steam? Can you post what other steps you’ve tried e.g. reinstalling visual C++ runtimes etc.

    Also try renaming the config folder in Documents\my games\Chivalry Medieval Warfare\UDKGame\ then reverifying again



  • I have tried all the start-up fixes listed in the stickied big list from top to bottom.

    When I verify my game cache in steam. it always comes up with the message that 4 files were missing and will be relocated



  • Obviously that didn’t work.
