Crash after intro
Hey, I can't start the game. It just crashes directly after the intro. I remember it being just like this when I bought it as well but then I found a way to start it anyway (with timing the skip-intro right.)

Now I can't remember how, but I figured I should be able to play the game without silly methods to start it so it's time to get this fixed.

I googled it and saw all the threads with people downloading the fonts etc. and I did that, still doesn't work for me. Not sure what else you want me to post. As soon as I try to leave the intro movie and go in to the menu I see the menu for 1-2 seconds then it grays out and says that it has stopped working.

I've tried to reinstall, and to verify.


8gb 1600mhz
xfx hd 5870 1gb

edit: by the way, not only did it not work to download the fonts, it seem to have changed a lot of fonts in chrome, everything looks super weird.

check the steam install directory :
"program files/Steam/steamapps/common/Reus/"
For a non-Steam install it should be in your installation folder
And copy past the error report it created.

If there is no error report,
Check your windows event log by typing Event Viewer into the start menu and look for the applications log.
If something went wrong with starting up Reus (likely) it will be logged there.
Then copy/paste the error reported !

Have this installed XNA 4.0 Refresh[]
Make sure you install the XNA framework with your own user account.
If you have an older version of XNA and the game is not working, uninstall the old version
David Aug 6, 2013 @ 6:12am 
That doesn't seem to be it. I downloaded that and first tried repair, didn't work, so I uninstalled XNA and used the installer again, still doesn't work. And I can't choose where to install it, no choices in the installer, just next next next.
Toriste Aug 6, 2013 @ 8:06am 
Yes because it's a windows program, so it has already a set location.
Do you have the same errorReport at startup ?
David Aug 6, 2013 @ 11:28am 
Yup, exactly the same :/

edit: it works sometimes, if i skip all the intros and stuff really fast sometimes it doesnt crash. usually have to try 4-5 times to get it working though
