Need More Info Game Crashes at the starting screen.

Users who are viewing this thread

Version number
How to Reproduce: Start the game
Scene Name (if related): starting screen
Media (Screenshots & Video):

Computer Specs:
OS: Windows 10
GPU: Nvidia GTX 980
GPU Driver Version: 512.15
CPU: intel i5 3570K
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77V
Storage Device (HDD/SSD): SSD

The game gets stuck in the loading screen, as shown in the media I posted. I verified game files twice, I restarted PC, and I restarted steam to no avail. I was able to play the game fully after starting it with safe mode, with all my settings gone. Please look into it. It somehow works after shutting down PC and trying again, but will I need to shut down the PC every time the game decides not to work?

Edit: Safe mode does not work anymore either. Neither does shutting down my PC and trying again. So I guess its a game of chance.

Hey, can you try a clean install? Please let me know if the issue is persistent.
Clean Install
The clean install is removing every single game-related file from your computer and installing the game again. Why do you need to remove the game while you just want to remove the modifications? Unfortunately, some of the modifications do not just add a new modules folder but also change or adds contents to the existent modules folder. Without a reinstall, we can't be sure those files are unchanged.

To perform a Clean Install, Uninstall the game. You can do that by right-clicking the game on Steam Library and selecting Delete Local Content. Delete all folders related to the game that remains after the uninstallation. The folders that might have files inside:
Steam: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
Epic: C:\Program Files\Epic Games\Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\Mount and Blade II Bannerlord
C:\ProgramData\Mount and Blade II Bannerlord

Note: You'll need to allow Windows to display hidden folders and files to see the ProgramData folder and its contents.
