Our Launcher Developer is looking in to this, and has asked if you could upload the newest versions of your console logs + darktide_launcher.log now that your shader cache is building, please?
Additionally, could you tell me which OS you’re using?
When the administrator rights are inconsistent between the Darktide.exe and Launcher.exe, this can result in problems launching.
You may have enabled administrator rights for one, but not the other, at some point.
We recommend removing administrator rights for both Darktide.exe and Launcher.exe by:
Steam\steamapps\common\Warhammer 40,000 DARKTIDE\binaries
NOTE: You may need to do the same for Launcher.exe, in
Steam\steamapps\common\Warhammer 40,000 DARKTIDE\launcher
