To start, my system specs are:
Windows 7 x64
Core 2 Quad Q6600
Geforce 9800gt 512mb, driver version: 197.45 (newest)
Just bought and installed Shattered Horizon today, and I was so excited to start playing it. However, after installing, I ran into the exact same problem as this guy
. When I press Play, the usual Steam window saying "Preparing to launch Shattered Horizon..." pops up and when that window closes, I get the standard Windows 7/Vista error window saying:
"Shattered Horizon has stopped working.
Windows can check online for a solution to the problem."
I've done every suggestion on the previously mentioned thread, and, like that guy, I have no AppData\Local\Futuremark\Shattered Horizon folder at all. I've tried running as Administrator (Steam and Shattered Horizon), uninstalling/reinstalling a bunch (Steam and Shattered Horizon), updating drivers, updating the C++ redistributable, updating physx, disabling physx, updating directx, everything. I googled around more and there don't seem to be a lot of people that have had this problem. I'm so anxious to play this game, it looks like a lot of fun, and I rarely buy games before being able to try them out at a friend's house or whatever but I was really wanting to play this.
So, any suggestions? I'll try basically anything at this point. Thanks.
