Help! Star wars Unleashed 2, Unable to start, black screen after starting, not responding>>close the program?
I just bought the game via stream, installed the game, then as i start the game, it opens up 2 windows, one is the game window, the second one is a active movie window (i have no idea why this exists, never seen this before). I click the game window, all i see is black screen, then i hear the sound of the intro of the lucas art thing for about 2 secs, it stops, then program not responding>>game shut down.
I have done some research on the net:
Step 1. Update Windows Media Player to the latest version. Install it if you don’t have it.
Step 2. Associate WMV files with Windows Media Player.
Step 3. Update your codecs. I recommend downloading K-lite Mega Codecs.
Step 4. Update your video card drivers. Click here to find the latest Nvidia and AMD video card drivers by clicking on their respective names here.
Step 5. Reboot
(the advises above are from

i tried all that, still have the same result. I am sure im not the only one with this problem. Is there any1 out there that knows whats going on?

Thank you for your time

I run AMD CrossFire on my system, I disabled it and the game works. I hope that helped.

Not sure if you already did this but verify the game cache it might help

I've had the same crashes, tried every fix around, the only thing that totally cured it for me was disabling crossfire in the Catalyst tools! Good luck!

I bought the game some time ago and could never play because of crashing out after the intro...yesturday i found this fix and it works for me although the game has some bugs still like going into slow mo and some times the char has leg drag only walking in one direction,Anyway hope it helps This fix worked for me ....Start/type Msconfig/select Boot/click Advanced options/uncheck disable all press ok and restart pc.... I found that if you get the char dead leg dragging press Esc and re-enter game cures it for a time but not fixed ,and a slow mo fix is to right click your desktop shortcut SWTFU2 properties/shortcut sub box and in the box next to Target type at the end next to SWTFU2.exe" -variableTimesteps" just have to leave a space between " -
