Now, Archeage launches in Windows mode ...

 

And crashes after Cry Engine Screen.

 

Any idea ?

 

Other question : It launches in DX11, can we modify that ?

The Cry Engine screen thing is known-most people are just spamming the ESC button until they get past it.

 

You have to go into settings and adjust your stuff. I am still researching exactly how to get into settings myself so I cannot help you on that one. Hopefully someone who has already been in game can help with that. :)

Either this, or just the login servers are down.

A quick fix : when you see the loading videos (cry engine... etc.) just ALT+ENTER ^^

It will go into windowed mode and you will then be able to fix your video settings.

 

The game tried to launch in a very rare video setting preset for me, so ALT+ENTER did help because it forces the game to go into Windowed mode ;)

Awesome advice, thank you for the alternative :)

I'm getting this crash as well. After the Cryengine sequence the screen goes black, the audio kind of bugs out, and the game closes.

Have you tried what allexiel said? Getting out of full screen (alt+enter) fixed the issue for me, and I know someone else whose client was fixed that way too. Once you get past the CryEngine screen once, it seems to not bug out anymore.

Yeah, I've tried alt+enter and it's been crashing the same way everytime (12ish times).

 

I've also disabled Microsoft Security Essentials and my MSI Afterburner (has overlay). Also with and without the english patch. I'm using the latest Nvidia drivers 334.89 on Win7 x64.

 

Someone also mentioned messing with the options menu, but I've never gotten passed the Cryengine vid.

I previously had no problem loading up AA but today it just started. I have tried spamming escape at the cry engine screen, forcing it into windowed mode with alt+enter, and using the AA_ResConf linked in another thread. I am boggled.(it doesnt take much to boggle me but just sayin)

 

*Update: Tapping escape is working now and a friend with me on voip said he crashed so maybe the weight lifting hamster LleX is right and the server login was kinda down or fluxing or something technical sounding.*

Wow pressing escape a few times when the Cryengine screen ends worked! :D

 

Thanks all for the replies.

After spamming ESC and ENTER on the CryEngine video it loaded the login/server screen.

 

After I got into game I straight away changed the settings/resolution and now it works fine. 

 

I did the spamming while on FULL Screen, not in window mode.
