[PC][Steam] Game not starting after intro

My issue is almost exactly the same as the user who posted [MAC][Steam] game unplayable after intro video

I am on a PC and have 15 hours logged in the game so far. After selecting start, the loading screen displays and the progress bar reaches approximately 60% then stops. The in-game sounds and music can be heard, however they cut in and out.

The last date I successfully played was 10/10. Since then I believe my computer auto-updated overnight. Not sure if that makes a difference.

If there is a log file to help with assisting, please let me know where to locate it on Windows 10.

Sorry to hear that!

There should be a logfile in a directory like:
C:\Program Files (x86)\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Battle Chasers Nightwar\BC_Data\output_log.txt

Could you share that here? Or if the forum won’t let you post it, could you PM it to me?

I had a similar issue. I was playing the beta just fine, but once it updated via Steam, it stopped working. The intro video plays, then it just hangs on the initial loading screen at about 20%. I left it alone for a few hours and it was in the same place. I’m on a mac.

Let me know if there’s any other info you might need to help resolve this.

We have had an issue where the Mac build hangs until you click the mouse cursor on the game window. It seems to lose focus when playing through Steam. We have code in place that should work around this, but it doesn’t seem 100%.

We had another Mac user who had that problem, and when he updated his MacOS version, it worked properly again. That makes me wonder if maybe there’s something we’re relying on that’s missing somewhere.

We’ll look into it more, my apologies.

Hello, any update on this? I am still unable to play the game.
