Unable to Launch

When BB2 launches, a black screen pops up and then the game quits responding and closes. I can't post the game log because it is being marked as spam. However, the first part said it was missing the graphics.csv.

Can someone hook me up with a solution? I have done the basic uninstall and hope which did not work.

In addition, can you turn off your antivirus and try again?

Do you get an error message now?

@FHI-HelpDesk
No error messages are showing up, the game log is still showing the same information as before. If the log is of any use for solving this, would you like for me to send it somehow?

Now the BB2 logo appears and the game quits responding for a few seconds before it stops the program.

Focus Team
  1. Open 'Windows Explorer' or 'File Explorer' from the taskbar.
  2. Click 'Documents' and open the folder 'BloodBowl2'.
  3. Upload the file 'Game000.log' on a free file sharing service like https://pastebin.com/ for example.
  4. Post the link.

Can you browse to Documents\BloodBowl2 and delete the Config.xml file please?

@Focus_Guillaume Yes, the file has been deleted. Similar results as the last option
