Bioshock.exe has stopped working...
Not sure what to think anymore, but I've been at it since release today to try and get this piece of ☺☺☺☺ to work...
tried everything suggested related to the issue from gamespot.com bioshock forum, steam user forum, and 2k bioshock techinical forum...nothing.
Seeing how there are many people with the same problem, it makes us beg the question, where is 2k staff in all of this mess? Not a SINGLE GOD DAMN OFFICIAL RESPONSE ABOUT THIS PROBLEM, NONE. In no way am I exaggerating when I say this, I have never encountered a game that wont' even start after looking into related forums.
Yes, I've tried resinalling the game, yes I've tried downloading newest directX, yes I've had the newest god damn Nvidia driver in my system...
I've tried flagging the shortcut with "-dx9", tried getting rid of the SeCROM, tried every god damn thing there is to try, nothing has worked.
I have computer that should run this without a problem:
E6700 intel quod core
purchased bioshock through steam.
And instead, I get a day full of frustration.
You may only think you have DX10 go get the August version and it might just work. That's what fixed mine.
All I did to fix this was REBOOT my computer. Then right-click on the Bioshock.exe shortcut and selected RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR and after that it works perfectly each time.
Intel Extreme Quad Core 3.2 Ghz
Dual 768MB Nvidia Geforce 8800 GTX
2GB Low-Latency RAM
Purchased RETAIL BOX of Bioshock
Bumping this thread because the same god damn thing is happening to me and I want answers.
Yep, i have this problem now, it happened after i melted the ice. The game crashed, and now i cant start it. I hope they release a patch soon
Guys, if you are running Vista try doing this.
Check your AppData folder ---> Roaming ---> Bioshock.
Is the Bioshock folder empty, or does it contain the 2 config ini files....???
