So I decided to purchase Walking Dead today after hearing many good things about it both from the media and word of mouth. Unfortunately, I made the error to not read up on how there's a prevalent problem with the game from the game not launching (what I am experiencing now) to save data problems.
Now, I realize that there are a majority of people who have no problems with running this game, but I seem to have fallen into the category of people who just can't get this game to run. And from what I've read so far, you guys haven't exactly pinned down what is going on.
Core 2 Duo 2.9ghz
8 Gigs of RAM
GTX 460 1GB
The main crashing point seems to be when I "click to continue" and during the "connect" portion (sometimes right after clicking), the game crashes out and WalkingDead101.exe stops working.
And yes, I've tried the troubleshoot you provided, I updated my drivers, and verified game data with steam. I even tried out many of the user provided solutions. Disconnecting the internet still has it crash on the connect phase, restarting computer/steam = nada. Re-installing steam, which I thought was pointless, proved to be just that. Never had trouble running any other games until I got to this one.
And if worst comes to worst (problem never gets fixed/patched), a refund is out of the question, isn't it? I'll happily provide video proof that this program is not working on my computer.
