I recently installed Guild Wars 2 on a new computer and it fails to launch after hitting play from the launcher. The executable itself launches, I hear the menu screen music, and my cursor changes, but I just see my desktop, not the game. If I open task manager, the application state's it's not responding and I'll have to force end the task to close it.
I tried adding the -windowed flag to the shortcut and that actually provided a white box instead of just my desktop plus a crash log, which I submitted. When I add the -repair flag to the shortcut, it "repairs" the game, but it does the same thing. I found a post from a few years ago on the forum with a similar issue and I tried following those steps, which were to delete the local.dat file in AppData, repair the game as an admin, and then run the game as admin, but this produced the same result.
Intel Core i7 9800x
Nvidia Geforce RTX 2080 (431.60 Driver)
32GB 3200MHz Memory
512GB NVMe SSD
2TB HDD (Game is installed on this drive)
Killer Networking 1650x AX WiFi
Windows 10 Home x64 (1903 Build 18362.267)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
