Game stuck at startup before the intro
After the DBD logo,and before the Alien intro cinematic, the game just seizes up in a black screen.
Reinstalling did nothing, updating drivers did nothing. Problem started today. Tried reinstalling EAC, didn't work.
Tried disabling Steam's overlay, also nothing. Also added EAC executable, DBD's executable and the separate installation to Windows Firewall Exceptions again, didn't work.
After reinstalling DBD, EAC, and scrubbing them from registry, then reinstalling all of it and re-booting the PC, it finally worked.
