Crash - On starting the game for the first time it crashed just after displaying the Unity 5 splash screen.

  • Upon attempting to start the game a second time, it made it to the main menu, displaying it at minimal resolution, I switched the resolution to something higher, mouse dissapeared so I restart the game. Every subsequent start of the game failed, with the program crashing after displaying the Unity 5 splash screen.
  • I noted that the AppData/LocalLow/Monothetic/Beacon directory only had a Unity folder and ./Unity/{local.hexadecimal}/Analytics had two files 'config' and 'values' which were both 0 bytes in size. @Aseaton in the Discord suggested that I might find a log file in the same directory as the executable but it had not been written.
  • I managed to get the game working by using Window 10's comparability mode. Could reach the menu, set a screen resolution. Could start a new game. Could move around. Appears to run correctly.
  • Trying to narrow down which of those setting was critical was unsuccessful, as even with no compatibility settings the game started up. This may suggest its part of some Unity 5 initialization overhead? Or that it doesn't like my integrated GPU? Or that it doesn't like the 4K monitor of my iMac?
