One time optimization on startup issue
Earlier during the free weekend trial I saw more threads regarding this, but never found a solution.

Game starts up fine, get to main screen and it says that it has to do a one time optimization beause the game has been updated. I hit the optimize button but nothing happens. Popup won't go away until I hit skip. I can then click on any of the menu options, but that just leaves me with an empty screen. (Ex. I hit play, it'll just leave me with the word play and the background screen. No interface).

The game worked fine for me during one of the previous free weekends.

Delete these folders:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Natural Selection 2\core\lua
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Natural Selection 2\ns2\lua

All paths relative to your steam directory of course. And then after deleting, go into Steam and re-verify your game cache (to redownload those particular files, only a few MB).

try run NS2 as Admin and/or re-validate your NS2 data via steam... and/or some specific .NET Framework (and/or Visual C++ Redistributable missing)... and/or if u ve Adobe Creative Cloud installed, disable it.
