I can't start the game - even after all youre tips
I hope someone can help me. The game won't start and after all the cool movies about it i really want to play it.
What is happening and what did i tried: I downloaded the game using Steam. With the downloading i said it should not download it under games\civ5 but under games\ When the download was finished i tried to open it, i did get the windows 7 busy mousesign for a few sec.. and then nothing.. Tried it several times, nothing. Not even an report orso. So i restarted my computer en tried it again. Nothing.
So i turned to the community and did some reading. I did update my direct X and tried again, nothing. I read all the programming, but i am a tech Noob so i did not tried that. Then i uninstalled and installed again. Still the same problem.
So i read some more and updated my videocard (GeForce GTX 460). This driver asked if het could optimize my games, so i said yes. He looked witch games i had, and there was nog Supreme Commander in it (i think thats wierd but okay).
I tried to start the game again... Still nothing.
So i thougth, maybe change the exe what some ppl say i should do... I couldn't find the game on my whole computer, while steam says i have it... So i can't replace the exe. So i tried contacting steam support, but they aren't home :(
I looked in my programlist and the game is registerd there, but has no size.
I looked again at the req specs for the game and i have more then enough.
I'm kinda lost what to do next. Is there anyone who could help me work this out? Or even to help me find the problem cause i'm lost...
