Black Screen Then Closes

Post by smerff » Thu May 16, 2013 10:32 pm

When launching from steam I get a black screen then it closes back to desktop. I did a manual repair/reinstall of xna + framework from the redist folder in steamapps/common/rues. It did dump an error report that looks like:
Version: 1.0.3.1
Thread: Main

This usually indicates that Steam did not download all files correctly.
Please try to verify the game cache. Go to the game library, right click the game, select properties, goto the local files tab and select verify game cache integrity.

If that didn't solve the problem, could you list the files in the audio folder in the install directory?

I did initially validate the files. Came back clean. Rebooted and now it's running perfectly. Great game too, just gifted 2 more copies.
