War for the Overworld crashes after splash screen (fixes providied don't work)

FennyBenny 5 years ago in Crash updated by Lee "Noontide" Moon (Designer & Community Manager) 2 years ago 7

Whenever I start the game, the splash screen appears like normal (WFTO.exe starts), then goes away, and WFTOGame.exe starts. The game crashes before a black screen. I don't own a wire-less headset, so that mustn't be the issue.

Hi Mikkel

Looks like your issue may actually be different from the one reported here (which is from 2 years ago). 

If I'm right the issue you're having is that the splash screen appears and disappears followed by nothing happening at all (no black screen). This is a recent development related to the 10th-gen Intel CPUs on Laptops/Tablets.

Am I right in my assumption that you are playing the game on a recently release laptop or tablet that features a 10th gen Intel CPU with Intel Iris Graphics? In any case please raise a separate report as per the link Cian included above.

You can also review Game does not start. Crash after splash screen on start up. [Windows 10 - 10th Gen Intel Iris Laptop, Microsoft Surface 7] which should help summarise your issue. In any case at the very least please raise a ticket with the details requested in the "Advice" section.



Hi Lee,

thanks for the fast reply.

After the splash screen disappears a Window with the title "War of the Overworld" appears, and closes after a second or two.
