Hello, I'm not entirely sure where to start on this so I will begin by saying I have tried many things, went over many topics and have not found a solution or figured out what the extact problem is. I have managed to launch the game succesfully on my laptop, but it is still consistently failing on my desktop (which I would prefer to use to actually play this game). When I launch the game, I get a black screen, even before the splash screen, and it will hang there perpetually until I either bring up the Task Manager or until I hit "Escape". When I go into the Task Manager I will get a crash which reads: Unhandled exception: c0000005 At address: 0686fc3c Acknowlidging the exception (or hitting Escape after launching) will bring up a windows APPCRASH event with the error seemingly located in StackHash_0a9e I have tried launching the game with virtually all compatibility modes, with 16 bit screen colors selected, 256 colors, 640x480, downscaling the screen's natural resolution to something similar and none of it worked. I feel the biggest issue is my screen's native resolution of 1440p which the game can't handle, but this would pose no issues if I downscale it both through the compatibility options and through windows. If anyone can help me resolve this I would be very grateful!
