Hello all,

Not long re-installed dustant worlds since the win 10 update, and now for some reason i dont seem to be able to get it to work. Tried running both from steam and the exe, the splash screen starts, and then it just crashes.

Here are my logs:
00:28:40 Initialize: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Other Log:

Post this in the tech support forum.

Do you have non-steam installers? Have you tried those? It could look like a faulty install, it seems to ask for SteamAppId and fail obtaining that. It could something as simple as a file with that ID not existing, for instance.

sorry i thought i had posted it in tech support. Must of been looking at the wrong page. Rookie mistake.

I dont have any non steam installers. Its a weird one for sure. Will re post in the tech support forum.

Unless you are limited on bandwidth, wipe the local files and download from scratch. It could help, in which case it is a rather quick fix.

Of course, it is just as likely not to help.

Tried that. Thanks for the attempted assist, it is appriciated :)

It is odd, because the files it seems to want are in there.

If anyone else has this issue, try switching to integrated graphics. Seems it doesnt like certain GPU's
