    So Chivalry or Deadliest Warrior won’t run and nothing is giving you any indication of what is ACTUALLY wrong!

    Follow these steps to get a better idea:

    Go to your Chivalry files:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\chivalrymedievalwarfare\Binaries\Win64

    or for 32bit machines:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\chivalrymedievalwarfare\Binaries\Win32

    Create a text file and rename it:


    Right click on this new file and click Edit.

    Double click on the file.
    Chivalry should start to run and give you the error again BUT there will also be a window in the background that may give us a new error message!
    It will look something like this:
