First post here (!) though I've been lurking since before the game launched. Before I start; I really love what the guys at RTG are doing with Dreamfall: Chapters- keep it coming please!
So, I've been running the beta version for a couple of weeks now with no problems, other than the occasional bug or glitch. No major crashes or other issues. Yesterday, I downloaded the 3.2.2 version and suddenly the game simply doesn't open. The steam "Launching Dreamfall Chapters" window pops up, as usual, but then it hangs and after 30 seconds or so, both DFC and Steam become unresponsive and eventually close. Oddly, when I open the Task Manager, it displays 4 DFC processes, even after the game has been closed. The issue has persisted with the very latest (10/11/15) update, also.
I've tried everything i can think of to resolve the issue: I've restarted both Steam and my PC and reinstalled DFC (stopping on the way to check that the current 3.0.5 release works, which it did),, verified the game cache, as well as launching directly from the .exe. That this issue has only occured since the 3.2.2 update and that Steam is working normally otherwise, suggests to me that the problem lies within DFC, rather than either my PC or Steam. I'm stumped!
I've attached two screenshots, one of the unresponsive Steam/ DFC and another of my task manager (after the game has been shut off), as well as the output file from the DFC folder and a DX Diagnostic report. I could also post the Steam .crash file if need be, but it is empty (0KB), so i doubt it contains anything useful (which seems off in itself). I'm not sure where to find the Unity- related file, but if you need it and can tell me where it is, I'll post that too.
