[POTENTIAL FIX] Game crashes on startup - same error in event viewer EVERY time

Game is crashing every time I start it. Sometimes it goes to a black screen after the very first thing that pops up when you start the game and then crashed and other it goes to the first block of text with the loading wheel for about half a second and crashes. I had one successful run after changing a DEP option but the game reset itself for graphics reasons and now it won’t load again. Event viewer log as follows:

Faulting package-relative application ID: SunriseReleaseFinal

FIX: The error seems to be caused by application such as MSI Afterburner, RivaTuner, and EVGA Precision X OC running in the background. I ended my EVGA XOC and Afterburner and the game is running fine now.


REMINDER: Crank your fans before hand so you don’t end up overheating your card.

I’m adding my error in Eventmanager here aswell, maybe we can start a collection of them so the Devs can work with the provided data…
