Game broken after patch (Temporary fix in OP)
TEMPORARY FIX POSTED BY DEVELOPER

Just got home today and noticed Retrovirus updated with a bunch of optimisations, I was already 5 hours in and the poor performance was dragging the whole experience down for me, so I thought this would be great..

Now the game just won't run, I click play from the launcher, the logo comes up and then nothing.

Tried completely reinstalling the game, the redists, disabling all 3rd party programs that could potentially interfere. Nothing.

Specs: i7 860 / GTX670 331.40 driver / 8GB RAM / Windows 8 64bit

This is the crash log that generates;

Engine Thread
179
System.Reflection.ReflectionTypeLoadException: Unable to load one or more of the requested types. Retrieve the LoaderExceptions property for more information.

If there is any other info that will help solve this issue just let me know, I'd love to get back into this.

Got this game like a week ago and only got the time to play today. Couldn't even try it, as it crashes after the logo. >_>

We are working to patch this issue. Until the patch goes live, you can prevent the crash by deleting "Cadenza.Paragon.ContentPipeline.dll" from the game folder.

Thanks, this worked. The game doesn't try to melt my GPU any more so that's nice too!
