Or maybe trying to use steam overlay by adding the game to steam? I would if I could.
I tried that when I add the .exe file to steam the gsme will load for a minute then out right crash. Then I decided to just launch it from the .exe file it self in the folder and the game will one load up for a minute then crash. I was hoping that they fix this issue because it is still a problem on the live game currently.
From my findings the game is linked to epic and epic is linked to a internet connection. I have steam, epic, uplay and origin. Out of all them epic is the only one where a game needs to be uninstalled with in the epic client. Short story is epic wants to know every move with its games.
