* FIXED* Black Screen on Startup, just the mouse arrow

[Edit]

FIXED

created a file call start.bat using notepad
inside type start bin\xrengine

use that to launch game instead of the gog game launcher, hope that mite fix error for u guys if u have to same error/bug/etc

[/Edit]

When I launch the game for the first time in my new pc, after the STALKER CS logo, all i got is a black screen and my mouse arrow....and nothing, it crahed when i alt-tab and bug trap give me this if I open tast manager:

Error Reason:
----------------------------------------
xrEngine.exe caused ACCESS_VIOLATION in module "C:\GOG Games\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky\bin\xrRender_R1.dll" at 0023:01EE6B24

System Error:
----------------------------------------
0x00000003 - The system cannot find the path specified.

I'll post more log if that is what is needed.

My specs are:
Win 7 64 bit home premium
i5 4460
msi z97-g45 mtb
xfx r9 280x
8gb ram

The game ran fine on my win 8.1 laptop with a geforce gt 635m =/
I look at this forum and looks like a lot of people are having problem with launching this game.

Same Problem

I uninstalled SRP because of adding Arsenal Overhaul to it (already in the SRP mod). When I tried to re-install the mod, all it would do is crash on startup. I uninstalled the mod again along with the program itself (Steam version) so that I would have a clean program upon re installation. The program without any modding crashes upon startup and goes to a black screen and pointer.
This reminds me of the Microsoft update problem of a few years back. Has anyone encountered any new problems with Microsoft upgrades?

My current set up is as follows:

MB - ASUS P8Z68-V LX
CPU - Intel I7 2600k
Ram - 8 gigs G Skill F3-14900CL9-4GBXL
Video - NVidia GeForce GTX750TI 2 gig

SoC has been crashing on startup too.

Anyone have any ideas?

You might check on that Windows Update that causes trouble with Stalker games on dx 10 and dx 11.

But never had your issue, it would always bring me to desktop in an blink of an eye after few mins of gameplay with that Windows update installed.

KB 2670838 is the notorious windows update that breaks the game.
You can safely delete it.
