Having a bit of trouble starting my Surviving Mars game, it seems to always crash on startup. The error in the .crash file seems to be "COULDN'T FIND OR PARSE MAP FILE" (does this refer to symbolic references in a binary or to an actual in game map file?). I followed the conventional wisdom on the subject, updating my graphics drivers, disable networking, disable cloud sync (EPIC Store), none seemed to work on this fresh install. I did notice in the LocalStorage.lua file that my GpuDeviceId seemed to be a strange value (a fairly large negative number). I don't want to post it here in case it is unique (for security reasons), but I have a GTX 960M. The crash file seems to show that the game seemed to grab the data from my graphics card just fine. Not really sure what to do here, any advice?


Thank you

P.s My non crash log (regular .log) file seemed to indicate a few OAuth errors with deleting a session, I have had a few account issues, could this have something to do with it? I find this both in the attempt I made with and without networking
