So I followed the directs to the best of my abilities ( Not saying much, but I try)… Everytime I open the SKIF, start the Global Injector, make sure its running… Whenever I try to start a game (Dragon Quest 11 in particular), the game never loads. I’ve checked the crash log, nothing is there. It just boots. Am I doing something majorly wrong or is it something simple I’m over looking?
If the crash log exists, but is empty, the problem is normally anti-virus. Bitdefender especially seems to cause problems like this. Also other software that inject into a game could be a problem. Things like the Discord overlay, Nahimic (comes with a lot of MSI and, increasingly of late, Gigabyte products), RTSS, etc. You can try disabling those. Normally those will result in a logged crash, most of the time with no log it is the anti-virus.
Lol I most definitely have BitDefender. I’ll try disabling it and Discord Overlay and report back. Thank you for your swift reply.
You might have to hunt around in BitDefender’s settings – it’s their Advanced Threat Control module, I believe it’s called, that’s causing the issue. I believe it has a separate whitelist from the active scanners.
Advanced Threat Control basically injects itself into other processes and then overrides various system calls with their own (e.g. file reads/writes, etc), and has historically had all forms of compatibility issues with third-party stuff.
I eventually stopped using BitDefender myself a few years back because Advanced Threat Control more often than not caused various Ubisoft games to not launch at all.
Okay, you were absolutely correct about BitDefender… It was indeed the cause for lack of even start-up. Now I’m currently just hung at the load screen before the game boots.
It does seem to cause me alot of issues with things sometimes. All I want to do is inject some of these better looking textures into this game
