game isnt letting me optimize it
Everytime i start the game up, it asks to optimize and i say go ahead and then it goes to a loading screen for a second then the screen goes black. And nothing happens. Anyone else have this or know whats wrong?

game is still not letting me do one time optimization. Literally cant play the game. Is anyone having this problem?

.. i know the question is abit odd, but do u ve always just blackscreen as result(after waiting awhile) or do u ve some kind of progress? is just nothing more happening or does the ns2 application crash/freeze?
i did the optimization about 30-40 times.. but i saw progress like switching from black screen to load screen.. then after couple of crashes i saw the 1st % of caching til next crash etc...

and what happens if u skip the optimization and just try join some server?

(else u can try validate/re-validate ns2 via steam.. (perhaps try start ns2 as Admin, but dont think that ll help for that or maybe some specific Microsoft C++ Redistributable is missing))

erase %APPDATA%\Natural selection 2\
verify game files
make sure AA/AF is not forced in the graphics driver
run ...\Steam\steamapps\common\Natural Selection 2\redist\directx\setup.exe

Press No on optimization, open up the console(key is in the options) and type "map ns2_summit"

yea it goes to the black screen after showing a map loading screen for a second. Like its about to work then just goes to the black screen. Ive skipped it before but it always asks me again later. ill try some of these suggestions i suppose

I have the exact same problem. Last time it happened, I pressed skip and it optimized while i was joining a game.

I can't optimize either, and everytime I try to join a game, it just kicks me back to menu
