[UNRESOLVED NEED MORE INFO] Game not launching (freezing) // from Steam discussions Empty [UNRESOLVED NEED MORE INFO] Game not launching (freezing) // from Steam discussions

Fri Nov 06, 2020 9:08 pm
Since yesterday the launch process freezes up when starting PH (steam also shows the application as "running" even though I killed it via task manager and I need a forced reboot afterwards to get everything back to normal again). I checked the search here but couldn't find any solution to the launch problem that happens here. Game worked fine since I downloaded it first on Nov 1. Any advice?

The most curious thing is that it worked in the meantime for about a day or so. I managed to get it running by forcing my laptop to rund on the nvidia GPU (for some reason, the game was launching it on the internal graphic card only which I never set anywhere as a default launching option whatsover). Very weird that it worked, didn't work, then worked again and then didn't work again (from Thursday to Friday, today) even though I didn't change any single thing whatsoever.

Specs: (sorry for German, I hope its alright?) Thanks in advance, the game is addictive so I hop it can be resolved!

Hi, thanks for the message, this actually looks pretty similar to a know problem reported here on the forum - if it's the same issue, the TL/DR is: only install certified drivers from your laptop's manufacturer. There's a detailed guide in this thread on NVIDIA forums: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/geforce-graphics-cards/5/400186/some-games-crash-after-launching-due-to-gpu/

Here's the original report:
https://projecthospital.forumotion.com/t2802-resolved-game-crashes-on-start-no-crytix-installed-laptop-with-intelnvidia-gpus

Let us know if you managed to solve the issue this way!
