About to write cranky post about why being able to pre-load when the first thing it does after unlocking is start downloading updates (why not part of the pre-load?)

*game finishes updating in 10 mins instead of the 2 hours it was telling me*

Now.. 'scuse me... i gots some mechs to smash

Just so that we are clear: it doesnt download updates, it DECRYPTS your pre-load so that you can play it..

After force quitting due to code registering taking too long the music now has stopped playing after relaunching the game multiple times...

Came back after a while. Maybe the game had some cached files to renew.

So hey, apparently the direct download from the Humble store is corrupted. The setup .exe won't extract properly. Just spent an hour and a half downloading for nothing.

I was having a problem on the Callsign/Customization screen. Couldn't back out cause it said my callsign was missing and couldn't advance by clicking save. I did an alt-F4 and restarted the game. I was not signed in, so I tried that again on the top right and it loaded my callsign, heraldry, and mech customization colors as I had saved them before.

Clicked Campaign/New and was on my way, good to go.

Just tried it ourselves here and it worked fine. It could be something wrong with Humbles download or something like necessary admin access. Have you tried again?

Hey guys,

now game is already online :).

However there might be some difficulties.

In my game everything went fine - instead the cut scene, intro etc.

This will always not shown; however i can skip via esc to go on in game.

Do you have a solution for that? or maybe the same problems?

Thz for help in advance :)

I've got my second direct download going now. My first attempt to torrent it had the same result. Two other people are confirming the same issue over in the Bug Report thread I started.

e: And it's not a permissions issue. I'm the only user on my PC, have full admin permissions for my user profile, and the bundled game files extracted properly. It's specifically the setup .exe.

Just finished my second direct download, exact same problem.

WinRAR and 7Zip respectively.

I don't even care about DRM now, at this point I'd take a Steam key to have the game in working order.

e: COURTESY OF RAVENLORD AND SOME DUDE IN THE KICKSTARTER COMMENTS: USE WINDOWS' DEFAULT ARCHIVE EXTRACTION TO GET THE FILES UNZIPPED.

Just updated!

For any issues you're experiencing in game, first make sure that all of your Graphics drivers are up to date, that your PC surpasses the games minimum requirements, Verify the Integrity of Game Files from the game properties and restart the game.

Drivers updatet because of this post
Gamefiles checked with Steam, all fine
PC tops the minimum and maximum
Ryzen 1600x
GTX1070
16 GB Ram
SSD for Games

EDIT: Also reinstalled (downloaded) the Game, same issues

The moment I click on "New Campain" Task-Manager shows some aktion from the BatteTech.exe. just for about 5-10 seconds...
Then it seems to go to sleep and nothing happens. Just black screen with the loading circle in the top left.
