[WD] Unable to progress past connecting

posted by The Indigo Child on - last edited - Viewed by 2.2K users

Hey all, I've had quite a few issues with this game. First I couldn't launch it, but I fixed that by disabling desktop composition. Since doing that I have made it to the main menu on several occasions. However I quit the game to go prepare a salad for my bearded dragon (useless bit of information I know) and now I am unable to get past the click to play bit, it just gets stuck on connecting. Anyone else had this problem? Anyone have a fix?

Thanks in advance

  • @TellTaleGames This is pretty weak, guys. This is a single-player game, which I can't play, because of some "Connecting..." nonsense?

    Honestly, that's pretty pathetic. If we can't connect to get gameplay stats or news, fine. But we should be able to play the game that we paid for.

    Hell, I was playing it not half an hour ago, and now it doesn't work.

  • I also played yesterday with 0 issues, now I don't past from "connecting" and is no my PC, I have all drivers updated and have a PC that can handle every game with no sweat...

    8 GB RAM DDR3 @1600MHz
    GTX580
    AMD Phenom II x4 965 @3.4GHz

    Restarted Steam (I bought it there), restarted PC, uninstalled and reinstalled game, and still connecting...

  • That issue should be resolved now.

    Thanks man, it's already working!!!

  • feel free to tell us what it was Mike ;) ;) please ?

    and after i did a restart LoL....

    works for me too WOOHOO

    Not resolved.

    I just purchased the game on steam and launched it for the first time and I get stuck at 'Connecting...' every time. I've restarted, re-installed the game, etc. I have a monster of a gaming PC and a super-fast internet connection. There's no reason why this problem would be on my end. I created an account on this forum just so that I could reply to this thread.

    What's the deal? I'd like to play the game I just purchased. Any way I can get a refund?

  • Got my Steam key, put it in, even played for about 18 mins. Then it locked up. Now when I try to get back in I can't get past the "connecting" prompt.. WTF man?

  • So is there any magic solution so far?

    I have just purchased this game and i am getting stuck at "Connecting"

    It does however gets resolved when i disconnect my network cable and i am able to play. But that is not acceptable because i do need internet while i do still play.

    I don't know any perfect solution. What platform are you playing on?

  • Just today bought this in the Steam sales.

    Hit the same issue - game gets stuck 'Connecting' on front end.

    The solution above from corruptbiggins fixed it for me.

    - Browse to folder where game is installed.
    - Right click exe - go to compatibility.
    - Tick run as administrator.
    - Start game

    Cheers
