Yesterday I started a new game with the 1.7 patch. All DLCs are active. Everything was fine, I played through a few missions, saved and exited the game. Later, trying to start the game – it doesn’t work. Just the black screen, not even the first logo appears on the screen. Tried a few times, waited for 10-15 minutes, no success. I used the “Verify” option in EGS and suddenly it downloads 1.19GB more, after which the game launches just fine and I played a few more missions.
Today morning, trying to play again. The game launches but the game freezes when I try starting any tactical mission. Tried to start a few different missions on a global map, no effect. Verified the files and EGS downloaded another 1.7GB after which the game was working just fine.
Now the game won’t start again. Black screen shows for a few seconds and then the game just closes. Verified the files, now EGS downloads (very slowly) 1.68GB and I think it will be fine after that but just for 1 launch.
I don’t see anything similar on forums so I assume it might be just me but the game was working fine at 1.6.2. Any hints?
Here is how output_log.txt ends after the last unsuccessful attempt to launch the game:
