    PC Cars - wont launch - sits at title screen

    Turned PC on after a few months - all looks good - and yet PC Cars wont get past the initial ( Slightly Mad Studios ) screen , it just sits there stalling - PC Cars also shows as NOT RESPONDING in Task Manager. I have done verification of local files in Steam - PC Cars still no go - Help would be truly appreciated - cheers.

    Strange because I have run PC Cars for a while , but hadnt used it for a few months - my PC didn't do any updates etc so I find this strange yet I have recollection of something similar happening before a while ago - cant recall the fix.

    You talking about the first title I assume..

    A few details about your computer may be useful..

    1. Make sure to add the Steam install path to any antivirus exceptions
    2. Delete the graphics xml config files from Documents\Project CARS
    3. If need be try renaming the default.sav file from Steam\userdata\<Your steam ID>\234630\local\project cars\profiles

    Ryzen R7 3800X - Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite - 16Gig DDR4 (Ballistix Elite 3600) - ZOTAC GTX1080Ti FE with EVGA Hybrid Cooler - iiiyama ProLite B2783QSU - Oculus Rift CV1 - Samsung 860 250G SSD, WD 6T Black, WD 2T Black, OCZ 120G Vertex 2 SSD, LiteOn iHAS122 DVD-RW - Creative 5.1 speaker system - Logitech G19 - Gigabyte GM-M6880X Gaming Mouse - Fanatec CSL Elite + Formula V2 + CSP V3 + SSH Shifter - Windows 10 Pro (64 bit).

    Thanks Mad Al.

    Yes Project Cars 1.
    PC - Windows 7 / i5 / 3.5Ghz / Asrock B85M HDS Motherboard / GTX660X Video Card.

    Steam runs games like Elite Dangerous fine - its just P-Cars and AC at this stage with these issues ( apologies for mentioning AC on this forum )
