Game doesn't launch (steam or manual launch as admin)
« on: January 23, 2020, 01:50:06 PM »
I played a bunch in 2016 when I got the game and I remember it was difficult to get working then, but it did work. I don't remember what I did to get it to launch anymore and none of the internet solutions seem to be working. Launching from steam, it says launching, synchronizing cloud, launching executable, and seems to be okay but a few seconds later it goes back to the play button as if nothing happened. Task Manager doesn't show Hammerwatch opening.

The game.log is no help, all it says is

Game 1.41
WorkingDirectory set to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Hammerwatch
Initializing game

and stops there every time regardless of which launch method is used. If I download the original file from Humble Bundle, it says the same thing (with version 1.32 instead of 1.41) with an additional failing to launch config.xml. Copy-pasting config.xml to the original file leaves game.log looking the same as launching the lastest version from steam.
