Game doesn't respond as soon as I open it.



  • I just bought the game on Steam, I get passed the splash banner, but when the game tries to open, it stops responding. I have no choice but to close it.

    I just updated the graphics drivers before I posted this. Any help, or should I get my money refunded?



  • Oh hulloh, welcome to the forums!

    Unfortunately, you’re using a single-core processor. Chivalry requires at least a dual-core processor to operate (something about threading support/cpu extensions). Sorry but you won’t be able to play the game with that computer :(
