Hello!

My steam-copy of South Park TST doesn't start. It installed with no flaws, but when I click play or start it from the directory, it's loading for a few seconds (also comes up in Windows Task Manager) but then stops with no error message.
Just for the game, I set up Windows completely fresh since it didn't work before. After that, I installed all the latest Windows Updates, installed the latest available Catalyst driver (2010.0210.2339.42455) and even Microsoft Visual C++. But it still doesn't work and it's driving me mad.

I'm using Steam in Germany.
System specs:
Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
ATI X1950 Pro (graphics)
Intel Core2 Duo 6400
2 gigs of DDR2-Ram
Crucial Mx100 256gb SSD (drive)

Thanks in advance!

What kind of antivirus do you have installed? I had a problem with F-Secure, and I think others use the same engine, which caused the game not to start. I had to deactivate Deep Guard (or rather, setting it to a lower security setting) to be able to play.

 

[edit]

Also, your graphics card does not meet the minimum specs, even though it does offer DX 9 and Shader Model 3. This could be an issue as well.

I'm using avast! Free Antivirus.
How could I've known beforehand that my graphic card doesn't meet the requirements? like you said, it supports DirectX 9.0c so there should've been no problem!
