Problem with the Chivalry Game Launcher

  • Tech Support,

    Yesterday the game started up and ran fine, but today I am getting the following error:

    Steam continues to think that I am playing the game, though it never truly started, and the Chivlauncher.exe process is still running after this error message comes up. Please advise. I checked a similar thread and followed the link to download the Visual C++ redistributable for 2012, but that did not fix my issue.

    Please let me know if you need any more information.

  • Per the pinned topic at the top of this section, here is my DXDiag txt file.

    My ‘Launch’ file is blank and I have none that would reflect the issue to attach here.

  • Try renaming the following directory and restarting the launcher:


    You might have to reverify the game cache again after this too.
    (If the error stays the same, you can rename it back)

  • Hey, that worked! Thank you. I did not have to verify the game cache. I just renamed that folder and started the game.

    Is it ok to delete the renamed folder?

  • sure is :)

  • Ok you can bypass the chiv launcher by going to C:/……Steam/SteamLibrary/SteamApps/common/chivalrymedievalwarfare/binaries/WIN32 or WIN64/UDK.exe

    Goto that folder and choose the 32bit or 64bit version and make a short cut and paste it to your desktop and wahlaa! You can do the same with Deadleist Warror and the SDK editor as well.
