Make sure that you’re using the latest WHQL nvidia driver.
Remove the launch properties.
Delete the Chivalry folder from Documents\My Games. Launch game without changing any video settings and connect to a server.
Also, what’s up with your DxDiag?
-Sure, when in doubt, go for the driver. I’ll just wait another ~2 months so I can get that sage advice again, who knows, there might actually be an update in that time.
-Done did it.
-Did that in previous attempts, now just downloaded the game again, should be just as well.
-The weird characters are probably some unicode eff-up because my OS is in russian. Should be inconsequential; this is literally the first game to completely fail on me in 5-6 years.
Anyway, same old problem.
EDIT: Maybe it’s the change in launch properties, or that I cleaned up the drivers and applied them again, but the issue seems to have gone away for now. Can actually get in a game now, will see if it keeps up.
