    after installing the update which should add the dodge and stuff, my game crashes on startup, after the splash screen; sometimes it just freezes on a black screen, sometimes it quits

    i have tried installing all the redistributables and erasing my savegames, and reinstalling but nothing works so far... any ideas?

    Maybe one of these could help ?
    • check that your drivers are up to date
    • disable all background programs (e.g. virus checker)
    • set your sound card to 6 channels instead of 8
    • right click on the game in the Steam interface > properties > Local files > verify integrity of game cache ...
    • suppression of .blob
    • run these installers and reboot the computer afterward:
      C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\risen 2\redist\DirectX\DXSETUP.exe
      C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\risen 2\redist\PhysX\PhysX_SystemSoftware.exe
      C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\risen 2\redist\VCRedist\vcredist_x86.exe
      (your Steam path may be different)
      (N.B. in the worse cases, you might have to un-install manually before to re-install)
    • try to launch the game directly from Risen2.exe:
      1. Launch steam.
      2. Launch file - "...\Steam\steamapps\common\risen2\system\risen2.exe"

    Good luck !
