UDK.exe Still not allowing me to start the game



  • hi,
    I posted a while ago but the posts contained my dxdiag in one and launch.log in another reply. so here is both.

    When I start the game UDK.exe crashes immediatly. I have performed every startup fix listed in the big fix post and none of them have worked.

    When I verify the integrity of the game cache it tells me 4 files need to be reacquired. Each time i’ve done this, which has been multiple times, it has not worked and tells me that there are 4 files missing. I have also made sure my graphics drivers are up to date and renamed my config file.

    I think its odd, but, I am able to play the beta version of chiv, which was downloaded when i purchased the game during the steam sale, but seeing as there is only one server and its populated with about 5 people its not really the experience i was looking for.

    Here is my log file pasted in this post:

  • I’m having the exact same issue. When I verify cache files it says 4 files missing, I reverify it says no files missing. Then After starting up Chiv and it crashing the verify cache says the 4 files are missing again. And the cycle repeats.
    A temporary fix is to uninstall Chiv, restart PC, then reinstall. I say temporary because the game works for only about a day or two then the issue reoccurs.



  • I think I’ve figured out how to fix it.
    After you do a verification, do a second one and make sure it says all files are verified. Now you need to restart your PC, then fire up Chivalry and it should work. Let me know if this works.

    Gref you only have 91 posts? That can’t be right. I swear I’ve seen you many more times than that.

    Maybe it was not here, for I am everywhere. O_O

    didnt work for me, I even reinstalled



  • Awe so sad =(
    Maybe your issue is something different.



  • No dice, I tried and after a second verification i got it to tell me all files were there. I restarted and got a different start screen when i tried the game, maybe they just updated the screen (the one where you click to play the game after starting it in steam) but to no avail, same issure UDK.exe has stopped working. I would really appreciate some dev love right now.
