side note....if you have any other games that don't start up try doing the same thing, i've had to do that with some of my older games for them to work

I think I might have the same problem. My game will start just fine and run, however i get a black screen from the start. the audio is fine, and if you click the intro skips to the menu, menu audio can be heard, etc, yet still with a black screen.

I used your fix and have had no change. Any ideas as to my situation?

I use a GTX 880M

Nope still does not work. Every time I launched the game it crashes at the loading screen.
