Bioshock on Steam Hangs on Startup
I had this specific very same trouble video game would certainly start-up all right and also when attaching to Live would certainly hang.
I ultimately identified it was a trouble with the conserve documents and also I supported this folder in other places. This permitted the video game to start-up uncreative today all my progression was shed. The last action was to pick my most recent conserve and also position it back right into the conserved video games folder wishing it would certainly be excellent. This functioned every single time, and also if it had actually failed I would certainly remove that conserve and also return to the next current conserve till I located one that functions.
Really aggravating yet it did permit me to end up the video game. I needed to do this ~ 4 times while playing via the solitary gamer.
Saves lie below :
I had the specific very same concern. Become some concern with my motherboard is constructed in audio controller not playing nice with the video game. Could be the very same point below, yet I'm not 100% certain because that was a Realtek concern and also your motherboard has a VIA controller. Could be worth exploring however, lots of concerns pop up when Googling Bioshock and also Realtek.
Almost all my troubles are amazingly addressed as quickly as i upgrade DirectX parts.
Simply download and install the internet installer, it'll "do the appropriate point" and also install simply the parts that your system does not have:
See here, have you attempted this?
Right - click it on your Steam video games checklist, most likely to Properties - > Local Files - > Verify Integrity of Game cache ... await it to end up and also download and install anything that could be missing out on and also attempt running it once more, do not neglect to permit anything that could be required to install prior to the very first time the video game launches.
I see you mounted the most up to date vehicle drivers so I'm presuming that's not the concern (I located that a lot of the moments my video games will not run if I do not upgrade my nVidia vehicle drivers and also they get upgraded rather usually, you could intend to examine once more for a more recent variation simply to ensure).
