I've scoured the forums and a handful of people seem to be experiencing this, but I've found no fix yet.
UPDATE - A workaround has been discovered that is working for me, at least. I have reported it to the tech support associate I was working with, so hopefully a future patch will correct it.
I found out what was making MY game crash. For some reason the game doesn't like my wireless headset. (I have the Afterglow wireless ones) Whenever I have it unpluged, the game starts up and works fine, but the second I plug the USB reciever into the back, the game crashes. My normal audio jack headset works fine though. Weird that it took three days to find this.
For the record, I am using a Turtle Beach PX3 headset with wireless USB receiver, but other posts indicate the make/model does not seem to matter.
UPDATE 2 - It looks like several commenters are continuing to have problems regardless of the workaround mentioned above. I'll continue to keep an eye on it, but I cannot personally test them (as the game works for me at the moment). One user did post a fix that I will post now:
Hay guys. so i had game crash and same problems whyt game start. so what have i done to make it work. - C:\Users\myusername\AppData\Local\4A Games\MetroLL and delete the user.cfg file - than i unpluget my wired headset - started game as admin in safe mode and it works now. try it mb it will help
Hope this helps!
As soon as the game launches, the game crashes with the Windows message "Metro Last Light Executable Has Stopped Working". Launching in the game's "Safe Mode" produces the same effect. Benchmarking utility will also not launch with the same message.
What I've tried:
- Verify game cache (at least seven times now).
- Reinstalled game (Twice)
- Updated graphics drivers (Details below)
- Restarted Steam
- Restarted machine
- Obtained full Windows updates
- Banged head against desk
System Specs (Work in progress, don't laugh):
- Windows 7 x64
- Asus GeForce GTX 660 (Driver version 320.14)
- Intel i5-3570K at Factory Clock (about 3.40GHz)
- 4GB RAM
- Two Displays at 1920x1080, DVI input
Suggestions are most welcome. Thanks.
