I played the crap outta Grim Dawn last year. Loved it, but got burnt out on it and moved on. A couple of weeks ago, my internet was down and I was looking for something to play that did not require an internet connection, so I decided to revisit GD. But when I tried to run it, I just got a black screen that appeared to be hung forever. It required me to bring up the Task Manager and issue multiple kill orders to terminate it.
So I ran the Repair Tool, with the “Reset Settings” box clicked. Now when I run GD, I get a window in the middle of the screen that says “Grim Dawn” in the upper left corner of the window (in other words, a window that is lower resolution than my desktop) that never does anything. When I bring up Task Manager, it shows this process as “Not responding”. When I kill it, now I get the Crash Report box, which says Grim Dawn has crashed. I have filled this out and sent it in.
OK, so what has changed in my system since the days when I was able to run GD w/o problem ? Turns out my internet being down was due to an internet card that has gone bad. So I had a new one intalled, and at the same time doubled my sysem memory from 8 GB to 16 GB. I don’t see any reason for either of these changes to cause a problem with GD…unless perhaps GD is trying to make an internet connection with my old IP address and is now hanging because of the new card. That’s all I can think of.
Anyone have any thoughts ? I sure would like to get this fixed and running again w/o having to re-install it and lose all my characters. Plus, I’m not sure how to re-install it. The folder it is under is “GOG Games”. I have purchased several GoG games, incl. this one, but have no clue how to go about re-installing one that purchased digitally…
