crash on startup

Post by tbro » Mon May 25, 2015 12:34 am

Program ran fine the fist time. Started up a 2nd time and it crashes on startup. Any help would be welcome. I was just getting into it. Here's what I get:

It seems to be failing to create the game window - whic usually indicates a problem with the settings (incorrect resolution, etc). A little odd since you say it worked first time, but i would going to My Documents\Sovereignty\ and deleting the settings.cfg file to reset the game settings.

Thanks.
That worked.

The default resolution the program chose the first time I installed it wasn't my desktop one but I thought I'd let it keep the choice it made. When I deleted the cfg file and reinstalled (just to sure) it chose my desktop resolution of 1920x1080. A little weird but it starts up fine now.
