So, I decided to buy the game the other day. But after downloading and installing it won’t get further then the Unreal Logo opening before it stops working and crashes. I have combed the big list of fixes and several pages of other crash threads. And have done everything in all of them. I have restarted steam and my computer several times. I have uninstalled, redownloaded, and reinstalled three times. I have validated, ran from files outside of steam. Checked and double checked my drivers, directx, and such. And none of it has changed.
Which really annoys me, is that I had the game on my computer before from the steam free weekend a few months ago. And it worked fine then. But now that I put out the money to buy the game, it is broken. That just seems to be completely backwards to me. Fix this.
