I got The Outer Worlds on release day and played it last weekend just fine. But when I tried to play on Thursday, nothing happened - the game doesn't open, it just flashes briefly in the task manager and then disappears. Doesn't matter if I try to open it directly or through the Xbox app. 


I updated my graphics driver (Nvidia) just before playing on Thursday, so I thought it might be the problem and tried rolling back, but it didn't help. I installed all Windows updates, I checked Windows file integrity, I reinstalled the game - still nothing. It just won't launch.


Any ideas?

Update: I figured out how to fix it, sort of. It works when I change Windows UI scaling from 100% to 125%. It's not ideal, but at least I can play the game again. :) If anyone knows how to make it work in 100% though, I'd appreciate any suggestions!
