Magicka Loading Crash
I just got the Magicka 4-pack, along with a few DLC's. (namely Nippon, Final Frontier, and Vietnam if that means anything). But I'm having trouble playing it.
When I try to play Magicka, the game load up fine until I try to start a game. After the intro cutscene, it starts to load the game, then it just turns off. It doesn't give me an error message or anything. It just shuts off.
Can someone help me please?
Game Version is, if that helps

And I have already tried the arcane slimecube fix, and there's been no change. It still just shuts off.
You could've found your answer here already:

go to the following directory on your computer and run DXSETUP.exe ...\Steam\SteamApps\common\magicka\Dependencies\directx_feb2010

Thank you, but it didn't do anything. It still just closes when the game loads even after I ran DXSETUP.exe
Hrm, then vo to the magicka directory, sarch for the latest errerReport text file and copy/paste the content here.

Do this:
