Ok. So I bought Fallout 4 again on another account on Steam. It downloaded and installed and what have you. When I went to launch the game, the launcher appeared as normal, but when you clicked play. The game gave me a black screen and then kicked me out, as well as crashing Steam itself.
I have tried the following:
Made a backup of the game on a flash and deleted local PC content. I then proceeded to restore the backup. That didnt work.
I tried using the compatability settings to use it as if it was on Windows 7. I did this on both the launcher and the Game App itself. That didnt work.
I have verified the local cache through Steam. It found 161 files were corrupted or not present. It downloaded the files. But didnt work overall.
I am truly at wits end with this game. Is there something I'm not doing right?
