Game refuses to launch
by Jeff Cook on Thursday September 5th 2013, 23:37
OMD2 no longer launches for me. I click "Play" in Steam,the typical "Installing DirectX..." message comes up, some console output is given (nothing out of the ordinary), and then OMD2 exits and the Play button becomes selectable again. There is no indication of a problem in the console output, as stated. Is anyone else encountering this? I attempted changing the priority on d3dx9_43 to builtin as described in another comment with no change.
Want to make sure this is replicable on other systems before I report the bug.
Issues I've had

Just to confirm, I'm going to change my rating from platinum to silver due to the following 2 issues;
1. The game sometimes crashes the instant you win/lose a level. Game is always saved so you don't lose any progress. But it happens a good 3/4 times an evening.
2. Almost as common; the game seems to detach from X! I'm not sure if this is a more serious bug that I'm reading wrong but X freezes (the clock on second monitor stops). All input from mouse and keyboard stops yet the game keeps on playing, only crashing when you die. I've had it happen to me mostly before the planning pre-first wave bit.
To fix the latter issue I have to ssh into box and kill X. Very bizarre. Game is defo only silver at this point though.
