Crash on Startup GE:S 5.0
« on: August 12, 2016, 02:07:47 pm »

After a couple re installations of both SDK 2007 and GE:S, the game still refuses to start up.
The game doesn't appear to get past the splash screen. I see a flash of it (the ge:s splash), and then the game crashes to desktop, no errors or anything.
I've tried numerous command line propts from the steam client (dxlevel, novid, resolution, windowed), several re installs, but have gotten nowhere.

I run a windows 10 rig, if that's a problem.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

It could be that you two are missing the 32 bit 2012 Visual C++ Redistributable Package.

I have the same problem on Windows 10.

Except, my game doesn't really crash, it just automatically minimizes during launch,
and cannot be re-opened again.

Using CTRL-ALT-DEL to open task manager doesn't work either, as it becomes frozen from this bug.

The game will launch successfully (but only once), and then this bug occurs.

Only temporary way to fix it, is to reinstall the game every time you want to play it.

This is likely a first launch resolution issue. Add the following to your command options within steam: -windowed

You have Tripple Monitor Setup.
Maybe the issue is related to this.
Try to launch GES with only one Monitor attatched and see if this works.
Then maybe change it to windowed and try to launch again with multi screen.
After that you might be able to adjust your display settings with the ingame options.

Sadly the launch options are currently broken (thanks again valve), otherwise launch options like -windowed or -dxlevel
could help with some issues.

You could try setting your resolution to 800x600 prior to launching the game. I also agree with only having one monitor connected on first launch. Setup your resolution settings, then reconnect your monitors.

using the launch options like you did wont make the game open in window mode.

you need to go to launch options of source base 2007 and add this:

Code: [Select]
-game "D:\Steam\steamapps\sourcemods\gesource" -windowed

change the "d:\steam blah blah" to your steam directory ie "c:\Program files(x86)\steam" ect ect

then run source base 2007 and it will open the game in windowed mode.

ges is setup with a launcher for ease of use but it do not transfer launch options to the engine.

Still not! I don't see splash screen now. Just a black frame and shut!

I try to reinstall all my steam in C drive.
All source games are installed in C.

I have a Windows 7 x64
Asus Geforce GTX 750 it's bad i know :P
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 2.5Ghz
8 Gb DRR2-800 Corsair XMS2
SSD Kingston 128Gb
Windows 7 are newly installed!
