As the title says, SP crash then CTD. I can load the game fine. To note, theres no sound. I have tried logging in to both an offline & online GFWL account but the same occurs. I'll click on Single Player - New Game - the loading screen will come up, it'll start the music of which i'll hear max 2 seconds of and the game will be replaced with a white screen and "Windows error messages along the lines of "Bioshock2.exe has stopped working...". Then after i click close on the error message i'll be back at my desktop.
So you know, my game was purchased through steam.
I have tried various ideas to fix the problem, including portforwarding, placing my router inside the dmz or setting the game to launch as dx9, compatibility mode and running the game as admin. I have also tried removing the SaveGame directory, but its pointless as there is nothing in it, being the fact that i haven't managed to get into a game yet!
Anyhow guys, your help is much appreciated with this problem. I haven't been very lucky with games as of late, Sacred 2 just CTD'd, Supcom 2 is a bit disconnecty online, Ubisofts servers seem to be dead for Splinter Cell Conviction... I had just never expected a Single Player game to not work...
Anyhow, thanks for taking the time to read through the information, if you need more info ill happily provide you with it.
