start screen crash
« on: 2017-02-18 04:04:39 »
Game is running everything normally up to the point that i press a button on my controller to bring up the start screen. Think ive followed everything correctly, tried reinstalling everything from scratch again after cleaning out the keys but getting the same result. Went through some of the posts of people having the same issue as it seems quite common but without any definitive solution given to the problem. Any help would be appreciated :)
