So, I've just downloaded BFG:A II today and have hit the same issue as I did with BFG:A I for seven months. On startup, the game is crashing without fail at the shown section in the image above.
I have attempted the Alt F4 trick that worked with the original game, alas no luck there. Additionally I have cleared out the appdata file and verified the file integrity via steam but that has also come up with no results.
System details are listed below in case that will provide some assistance. I hope I can get some assistance soon as I don't want a repeat of what happened with BFG:A 1.
