Recently, I'm unable to play the game. It crashes on the loading screen every time I try to start a new game. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling both the game and steam, deleting save data, checking permissions, running as admin, turning off cloud save, etc. All of my drivers are up to date and I have the correct specs. I checked debug.err, and it always ends immediately after "Map Generation using seed: ___ ".
I've tried to verify the integrity of the files. It tells me that 4 files failed, and after that's resolved and all files are successfully validated, the problem doesn't resolve.
At this point, I have no idea how to fix this and be able to play again. I've played over a hundred hours before this, on the same computer with the same settings, and I have no idea what changed.
Any help would be appreciated.
