PoE 2 Startup BUG - PLS NEED HELP

Question

Hi All

 

I just bought PoE2 and trying to play the game but when i start the game from Steam it starts the game and then minimizes it.

 

I cant switch to the game screen what ever i do. I hear the sound of the game but thats it. I searched the internet and nothing.

 

When i try to switch to the game screen it gives me 

 

'' Fatal Error - Player is already running'' error.

 

I did the validation on steam and uninstalled and installed the game again but same problem.

I have the latest drivers.

 

 

 

PC Specs

I7-3770 3.4ghz

16gb ram

Asus 1060 6gb Rog Strix

You should try Steam forums

 

https://steamcommunity.com/app/560130/discussions/0/1696046342875575033/

 

^The link I posted is the thread the developer made and pinned himself. They are probably more active there since there's much less clutter on Steam forums I reckon.

 

Additionally, alot more players there so you may have a better chance at finding a fix there whether from dev or other players.

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

 

Begone! Lest I draw my nail...

There a tech support sub forum (below this one (General Discussion) on the forum list). You will have better luck posting the bug there because the developers are more likely to see it.

I have the same problem right now. Nothing i do seems to be able to fix it so far and nobody on the Steam forums seems to have a solution. I cant do anything besides watching the game in my taskbar.

Try running it from the main game .exe file located in Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Pillars of Eternity II folder rather than via steam or the steam created shortcut and make sure set to run as admin. See if that helps.

Greetings Grambori,

 

Sorry for the late reply! If you are still experiencing this issue, would you please post to support.obsidian.net with your dxdiag and output.log so we can investigate the matter.

 

Thanks,
