L4D2 Engine Error

Postby Arbor plena simia on Sat Jan 09, 2010 3:47 pm

Hello,
I was wondering if anyone else has experienced the same problem or knows a solution to L4D2 crashing after the intro movie with a popup titled 'Engine Error', and saying 'Could not load library client'.

The game has run perfectly fine but just one day decided to crash (completely close) after the intro movie, before I see any menu and has done it every time since.
If anyone has any suggestions, they'd be much appreciated.

Don't try and skip it, or you can try going to L4D2 in steam > properties > Set launch options > add "-novid" without the quotation marks.

/edit, just re-read the problem that causes it. Seems like you might have to reinstall the game.

Thanks for the help :)
I reinstalled it in the end which seems to have done the trick.
