Fatal Error at startup

Whenever I start the game I get a fatal error message and the game crashes.

Windows 8.1
32GB ram
2x Radeon 290x

Here is the crash dump: https://ufile.io/1ikol

Hey there,

Is the error "LowLevel Fatal Error"? by any chance?

Somehow I have fixed whatever was going on. The first thing I did was to uninstall the old Windows 8.1 drivers. AMD no longer supports Windows 8.1 and has stopped making drivers for their cards for that OS; the last Windows 8.1 driver was on 7/14/17. I installed the Windows 7 drivers instead. But that did not fix my issue with the game initially. I then deleted the app data folder just now and the game started working. I have done this before without any success since installing the W7 driver so I don't know why it worked this time.
