Game Can't Get Past Menu Screen! Help!
Everytime I press start on the menu screen, then I always get a endless looping loading screen with a spin dashing sonic in the corner. I can't even play the game! Help! https://imgur.com/a/mHULmEz

You could try and remove the offline token for Denuvo:

Steam\userdata\<your-Steam-ID>\584400\86869874

Removing the above file will cause a new token to be generated on next launch of the game (note that you're going to need online connectivity on launch to fetch the token). If you see another couple of files in that folder with just a bunch of digits then those are various tokens for the different versions of the game you've played. You're free to remove those as well if you want to.

This isn't the first time this game have had issues with the offline token either. Last year a few users had a similar issue where the game would crash on the title screen as well. Generating a new token solved the issue for them.

Do you, by chance, have any mods installed? I had some glitches in my game when I forgot to uninstall the mod installer after the game updated.

I have unistalled my mods and whatnot. But it still does this. Idk if I did it right though.

When you first launch the game, do you get an error message? When you run the .exe of the mod installer, there's a button at the bottom that says "install/uninstall loader." If you just deleted the files, the loader may still be installed.

Yeah, i just deleted the files, should i reinstall the loader and then click "install/unitsall loader"?
BrownLemon Jul 18, 2018 @ 10:22pm 
Ok, so the mod loader has been unistalled. Now what?

Wouldn't hurt to try. I'd do that.

Oh. lol. Are you still still having the same problem?

I reinstalled the game, but the same problem. Might be due to the patch.

Ya, im still having the same problem, what now?

Uninstall the game and delete the game's folder after uninstalling. Install the game again. (note: your save files are stored in a different location, so they won't be removed.) If that doesn't work, use the hidden Steam console to restore the older version of Mania. If that still doesn't work, it's related to your PC's hardware.

Where are the save files located?
BrownLemon Jul 19, 2018 @ 11:06am 
And where can I find the Steam console?
