TO ANYONE WHO HAS A RYZEN OR THREADRIPPER CPU
If you are experience crashing on the splash screen please try enableing legacy mode in Ryzen Master.

I couldn't get the game to run on my 2950x until i switched to legacy mode, this might save you hours of trying to figure out why the game crashes on the splash screen.

Im sorry i don't know how-to enable legacy mode without Ryzen Master installed.

Yeah im not sure how that works. Since Windows is installed based on which mode is chosen in the bios, setting legacy on an uefi Windows install will probably result in a failed boot.

I seen your other reply regarding Ryzen master, i have no experience with it so couldn't comment how it goes about doing what it does to make this game work for you.

Past 8 cores Ryzen Threadripper or high end Ryzen cpus may need to be put into legacy mode that disables the die 2 cores, for this game and a few others to work properly. Basiclly past 8 cores; some older games like Farcry 4 cannot run properly if at all. Ryzen Master is just a gui with profiles so you can configure your Ryzen for overclocking and other things includeing disableing the die 2 cores without resorting to messing with regedit and BIOS yourself.

So far this game launches succesfully on my workstation when put in legacy mode but fails to launch when die 2 cores are enabled (as default). I spent hours re-installing my Steam and my Windows10 plus all my drivers only to discover that this was the primary solution.

The default game profile does it all for you, as shown. But you need to restart everytime you change settings.

And heres some info about legacy mode

Apparently some applications cannot handle the excess cores for multithreading.

This issue might only effect threadrippers for now.

Good to know and well done.

Wonder if theres a utility like that for Intel.

The only tool i can think of is Intels Extreme Tuning Utility https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24075

And Intels Extreme Memory Profile

Just google AMD Ryzen Master Download and it'll show you the download screen. I'm having problems with it going to a black screen for 2 seconds every couple of minutes, sometimes more frequently. Changing the Game Mode and turning off all but 2 cores didn't resolve it for me, but it might still help some of you.
