SNIPER ELITE 4 WON’T START
It played well on 14th & 15th Feb. Went back to finish Dishonored 2. When done I uninstalled Dishonored 2 then went back to Sniper. It displays the Sniper screen (Play, Options, Support). But when I hit play nothing happens. Here's what I've done:
-Uninstalled/reinstalled game. When reinstalling and choosing to “launch the game when ready” it has this error message:
"Game failed to start (invalid app configuration"
-flushed Steam cache
-verified Steam game files
-downloaded full set of Visual C+++ runtimes and redistributables.
-Unistalled Steam. Reinstalled Steam (saved SteamApps & Steam.exe, deleted all other files under “Steam” directory.
-deleted Sniper saved games
-tried installing under another user on this same computer, same unsuccessful outcome
-updated Geforce 980 Ti driver
-Googled and tried about all their recommendations
-Tried different configurations (res, DX 11, DX 12, advanced settings (selected/unselected), etc.
My computer has high-end specs all the way around so that's not the issue.
