I have tried everything and maybe I missed something but I cannot think of it. So I have updated C++, drivers, etc. Checked walls and other security but I am stumped. Garison

"Today is: 26.2.2017" looks suspicious

Sorry to say that is the story. It does not get into game. I log onto steam click CTGW and the game start box comes up click play game and nothing happens period. That is the story. The game does not start at all. Thanks for replying I appreciate any help I can get. Looks like great game but haven't been able to play at all no matter how many "hours" it says on my account.

I updated all my C++ all the years; etc. NO JOY

Its also very strange that according to the logfile the game crashes during game turn #10 although you say you were not able to start the game in the first place. :?

Yup, I even uninstalled and reinstalled from steam and no joy. But did get a bit farther this time. Tried to load and got kicked out of steam. New Zip File.

Can you provide an archive containing the autosave file (to be found in the game's save folder)?

whats your resolution?

have u set up some in game?

u dont need running steam to run this game

ctgw_steam.exe runs it directly

ctgw_launcher.exe first set up game (turn off vsync and intro and/or windowed mode), then launch it

i hope u dont use larger icons at desktop in windows, its messing up ctgw somehow

[09:58:49][9120]Unable to initialize audio device - have u installed OpenAL Soft?

"I updated all my C++ all the years" both from ctgw steam folder would be enough, u could miss that year 2012

Thanks, its working: Somewhere changing fonts/icon size and checking display settings got it going. Thanks so much.
