Crashes almost immedeately after starting up. Help!
Recently Bought hotline miami on sale and started it up (I'm a Mac user, btw) after clicking play, it would start getting started up, then just not work, forcing me to force quit out of it. I've searched, and haven't found any answers online as to how to solve this. I'm not sure if this is a bug, or just something wrong with my computer, but I really need somebody to help.

I have this problem on WIN 7. waiting patch!
Same as the previous comment, just with better grammar.

Edit: updated my graphics driver to the most recent edition, verified the cache and it doesn't do anything different...get to the Devolver intro screen and the game CTDs.

Here's a fix for the launcher crashing problem for anybody running the game with a Mac:

For anybody having trouble with the launcher crashing with the Mac version of the game, just go into
then right-click the application and click "Show Package Contents" and go into Contents/MacOS and then click YoYo70_Original. The game should launch without the launcher and in the original gamemaker version. Enjoy!

I just purchased this game today. After it installed i tried playing it but it just freezes after a few logos. To be specific, it freezes at the Dennation logo, the two parts of the face never meet up. I updated my geforce drivers and it did nothing. I hope there is a fix or they resolve this soon.

oh man arcadejetfire you are my hero! That totally worked!
Now if you can summon a fix for us Windows users, that would be excellent.
Managed to fix the problem, somehow. Tweaked some settings for my Nvidia card which are in the bugfix thread for Shadow Warrior.

Dosbilliam can you be more specific?

Direct copy from the posting...

"This is using the Nvidia Control Panel, so it might not work for everyone...

The only one I think really changed anything was switching Negative LOD Bias to Clamp, but the other major setting I tweaked was setting Multi-Display/mixed GPU to Single Display, since I'm using a laptop.

I also changed the PhysX setting from Auto to my dedicated card, but I don't think that would affect anything."

Nothing seems to be working for me. I really want to play it, starting to regret buying it now.
