Thread: Brink won't load, shuts down after splash screen

    Brink won't load, shuts down after splash screen

    I made an account just so I could get this issue fixed. I paid for this game, it damn well better work.

    I'm using Steam, and whenever I click Play Game for Brink, the splash screen comes up, my mouse indicates something is loading, and Steam indicates that I'm playing Brink. Three seconds later, everything stops. The game doesn't load, my mouse returns to normal, there's no process/application running, and Steam returns to online rather than in-game. No error message pops up or anything.

    Before you start, no, I'm not using ATI. My desktop is an intel i7 975 3.3ghz, running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. 6 gigs of RAM. Nvidia GeForce GTX 470 with fully updated drivers.

    I have tried:
    re-installing Brink
    verifying game integrity
    defragmenting cache
    disabling opening movie
    running in compatability mode
    running as administrator
    deleting certain files, then updating Brink
    playing in German
    restarting my computer
    restarting Steam
    turning off triple buffering
    turning on triple buffering
    running at minimum settings
    running at maximum settings
    community-made programs

    Help me, Splash Damage. You're my only hope.

    Re: Brink won't load, shuts down after splash screen

    Soooooo...any word on a fix? This seems like a pretty common problem...

    Re: Brink won't load, shuts down after splash screen

    Fixed (so far)! Downloading the free DLC again seems to do it.

When i go to steam and go play the game then there just comes a little picture up and then nothing happens in about a minute and then a pop-up window come up and says: The current video / driver combination does not support OpenGL 3,1 or newer ------ Initializing File System ------

    Re: Brink won't load, shuts down after splash screen

    Update your graphics driver to a version that supports OpenGL 3.1 (at the moment you have 2.1).

    If you can't find a newer driver then your laptop doesn't support it and you'll have to find something else to play on.
