You might want to check your My Documents/my games/farmingsimulator2013/log.txt to see if there are any errors to be found.

It also wouldn't hurt to reinstall/repair your DirectX9 (it could be that some files are corrupted). You can find this in /your steam folder/steamapps/common/farming simulator 2013/dxsetup/

If you have installed any mods you might want to backup and remove these from your mod directory.

I don't have any mods, cause I never have launched this game succuesfully :/

I was trying to solve this by doing the followings:
1. Completly deleting my Graphics Card drivers
2. Installing drivers to Graphics Card from CD, which was given by producer of this card
3. Installing latest drivers to Graphics Card from nVidia site
4. Installing latest DirectX drivers (DirectX 11) + this one from game folder
5. Reinstalling the game, on different hard drive partition
6. Changing resolution and some of options by editing "game.xml"

My computer specyfication:

Motherboard - GA-970A-DS3
Graphics Card - gigabyte nvidia GeForce gtx 650
Processor -AMD Phenom II x4 965 (4x3,4Ggz)
Power Supply - OCZ 550W ZS series
OS - Windows 7 64bit

What is interesting - the game runs on my previous computer with worse components and on my friends computer, who have the same Graphics Card that I have.

I was either trying downloading pirate, cracked copy of this game from internet (Farming simulator 2013 + titanium) and... it runs without any problems... Please help me to solve this problem. There is my log file:

When you reinstalled, did you also remove the documents/my games/farmingsimulator folder?

Have you tried verifying game cache files?
Have you modified "game.xml" in your in your documents folder?
If you did, have you tried to set fullscreen to false?
Have you triend running FarmingSimulator2013Game.exe in administrator mode?

Hi everybody! I found a solution! :) Two days ago I bought Garry's Mod and have nearly the same problem - when I did run a game it says "Engine error" and stopped working. I was searching and I found a solution - which was closing the "Gigabyte OC Guru II" program. This did help me either with Garry's Mod and Farming Simulator 2013 too. Thanks to you guys, which was trying to help me, and please dont delete this topic, so that other people will find the solution too.

Ah who would have guessed that OC Guru could cause problems. Well at least you're able to play now. Good for you. Don't forget to feed the
