I'm sorry if this is a double post of any sort, but I only found some old archived threads that were related, where I cannot post. The issue: At launch, I immediately get a crash prompt "Empyrion - Galactic Survival has encountered an error and must close." (Error log says: Empyrion.exe caused an Access Violation (0xc0000005) in module Empyrion.exe at 0033:f5479db7.). All executables in the game folder crash immediately. Windows 10 Pro x64 (latest updates) / Core i7-4770K / 16 GB / GTX 1080 I have tried amongst other tricks at least the following: * Different Beta versions: alpha 7, alhpa 8, Experimental, normal * Uninstalled the game, then installed again. * Changed the installation drive. * Launched with -lazyws option * Launched directly from the installation folder * Changed NVidia Geforce driver versions: 417.01 -> 418.81 -> 391.xx -> 418.91 (clean install) * Changed several NVidia settings * Disabled secondary monitor * tried force-d3d9 (with various alpha versions and the current build) * Disabled antivirus (Webroot) * Closed other services and applications (e.g. Citrix Client, Adobe Creative Cloud, etc.) * UnInstalled Unity * Performed System File Check on Windows (SFC /SCANNOW) * Rebooted, rebooted, and rebooted. Somewhat recently - like a month ago - upgraded my GTX 1060 to GTX 1080. This might be related. So far all the games I usually play, have worked, however. NOTE: Coincidentally, my Cities Skylines game has recently stopped working also. That's also an Unity game. Same kind of crash dump, including GTX 1080 in the hex dump. sspicli.dll being the last file loaded in error.log. However, another Wasteland 2 Director's Edition - which is yet another Unity game, works fine. I have never played the game. I bought it when it was at Alpha 7 or 8, and now is the first time I have time to try it. But I can't find a way to launch it. I have been debugging this for hours now, with help from a friend who plays it, and surfing through Google hits for the problem. I have never had this kind of problem with other games. Crash dump has something related to c:\windows\system32\sspicli.dll causing Access violation.
