with the official release of window 8.1 this is going to be a fairly large issue.
the game will not launch, i appears to be related to the new revision of direct X (11.2)
re-installing game does nothing
re-installing direct x does nothing
re-installing .net framework does nothing
ALL windows updated are installed
i have tried to launch game as admin (no change.)
i have tried BOTH OFFICIAL NVIDIA and BETA drivers
this has been an issue sense the release preview
this is NOT an ISOLATED ISSUE
Thanks so much for posting and providing links. We're very sorry to hear you are having an issue with launching the game. I didn't see a current issue listed in any of the links. It appears one issue happened back in March and the other in July.
Although you have listed the steps you have tried, have you also verified game cache Verify Game Cache Files (GCF) - How To's - Knowledge Base - Steam Support
Also, can you please provide more details on the specific issue you are having? Indicate any error message you have received and state what happens when you launch the game. The more details you provide, will help us greatly with troubleshooting your issue.
it is the same issue in the 2nd link,
when you click the game launcher nothing happens
the game syncs with the steam cloud then nothing.
if DirectX is up to date you receive no error
i have verified the cache files
i have also re-installed the game
will give you and idea that the issue is still current
yesterday 1 person said it was compatible and 8 said it was not
the specific ERROR i am getting is
"t6sp.exe - Entry Point Not Found
the procedure entry point CreateDXGIFactory2 could not be loacated in the dynamic link library C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\d3d11.dll."
There is so much shit wrong with Windows 8. Not with the version itself but it's compatibility settings. Everything that you have been used to doing on Windows 7 is now tarnished thanks to Windows 8. I personally am frustrated that I can't play some games or things. My only advice is to download the .dll's from the dll file fixer site but download it as a file and then unzip it and transfer the .dll to the game folder and hopefully that get's it working.
