crash on startup in

Postby m349783 » Fri Dec 01, 2017 8:29 pm

Error on startup, no stack trace though (see the log file below, why is stack trace missing?)

Any ideas how to fix? Search for this error gives nothing in forum.

Hi, you need to install Lost Alpha 1.3000 (the 4 big parts) first, as DC update/patch does not contain the 15gb+ game in it itself, otherwise the installer would be at least 8gb big, if not more :)

Another issue can be, if you installed LA, and then the DC patch, but you didn't check the install paths, just clicked "next-next-next" until it finishes. In that case, the installer installed the game elsewhere, and it can not find the game files. Make sure you check the paths during installation.
