[Solved] GRID 2 won't start at all

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey guys!

So I got GRID 2, and was really stoked to try it out.
But my dreams where crushed when I tried to start the game (using steam version).

I get a black screen when I start the game, and nothing happens. Have to ctrl alt del out of it....
Anyone else having this issue?

Specs are in sig, and using the release driver for the 780's, everything is on a clean install of windows with all updates and newest drivers for everything!

Thanks for any help.

Have you verified the installed files?

https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=2037-QEUH-3335

Failing that,

-disable SLI and try with one card.
-disable steam overlay if on
-disable Fraps, afterburner, Precision etc

I had the exact same problem and If i remember correctly it was afterburner and Mirillis action I had opened at the same time that caused it.

Thanks! Was fun so far, but can't wait till I get to the true drifting here, I was a drift master in the first game hehe smile.gif
Lowest fps I have seen so far is 90fps (usually over 100) with everything max and 2xmsaa at 2560x1440, so performance is good too and I must say it looks nice smile.gif

Don't worry. You're not getting good SLI performance in GRID 2. Also, the game is crap. Yes, I AM negative nancy.

Hehe, well I enjoyed the game so far!
Sometimes it is nice to play something a bit more arcade than other racing games, so I do not regret buying it! thumb.gif
