Crash on Startup
I'm unable to start the game, it immediately crashes on startup.

302, 303, 305 start up normally, but 301 and 304 both immediately crash.

Windows 7 x64
nVidia GeForce 580

See this...

Likely due to running multiple monitors.

They all crash for me. Funny thing is every other Telltale game works fine, from S&M season 1 though to TWD.

multiple monitors?! damn, lets see if this guy is right...

OK, yes, unplugging my extra monitor fixed it. That's lame but at least I can play now!

thanks for the tipp. when in the game, you can switch to window-mode. then it works with second monitor active.

So not worth playing on my smaller screen. My second moniter is my TV.

You can play on whatever screen you'd like. You just need to disable whatever other device is connected. Such is easily accomplished via the Display/Screen Resolution control panels.

Um... let's roll out a bug fix for this, Telltale. That's a rookie mistake.

This problem also came up for me, but because I had a 360 controller plugged in. Unplugged it and the game started up fine.

Hate these lame things... I'm not supposing to disable anything.
Well, at least there are an easy "solution". Thanks for that.

lol... ok... that was easy (can't believe I was waiting all the time for a bug fix -.-' )
(did this on Windows 7!)

make a screenshot - because all your stuff will be moved to your primary monitor ;)

right click in the desktop
"monitor settings" (had to translate it, last but two entry/third entry from the bottom up)
disable the second monitor by changing the last drop down from "extend" to "only use screen X
(do not close the window yet - you want to switch back to two screens!)

start each part of the game (one by one) and do this:
click options
click the arrow on the right
full screen off
resolution to whatever you like (has to be smaller than the resolution windows uses) (+apply)
exit the game

reenable the second screen
and move all your icons back to their old position

+ two screens
+ game will not crash
- window instead of fullscreen (smaller than it could be and you see the desktop)

(Telltale should start thinking about windowed fullscreen - quite cool for e.g. MMORPGs when you can manage your TS / read instant messages/browser stuff/watch temperature/speed/... of your PCs components... on your second screen - without minimizing the game/the game being minimized when the game loses the focus)

Here is a significantly better solution for multi-monitor users. Navigate to the executable and change the compatibility settings for the exe. Choose 'Disable visual themes' and 'Disable desktop composition'. Voila.
