Press play, launcher closes and nothing happens

Recommended Posts

Hello Support,

 

I downloaded and extracted the launcher and the battleforge.rar into the same folder. 
My launcher started and patched a bit. Now it says version 0.5 windows..

I press the 'Play' button and the launcher closes. There is no application in Task-Manager anymore and

nothing happens, nothing's starting..

Here a lil screenshot of my BattleForge folder.

During the whole process btw my antivirus was turned off.

 

Thanks for your help already ! :D

Your base, bf1, help and plugins folders look as they are compressed by Windows. This can be a problem during the game start. Try to uncheck the "Compression allowed" option in the main directory and see if this works for you.

Were you able to start the game before?

No, couldn't start the game before.

 

I turned off every file compression but still the same problem :/

Did you decompress the files again? This seems the most problematic thing for me right now.

What do you mean with decompress the files? Should i drag every single file out of their folder?

No. Take a look at the icons aside the directory/file name. You will see a double-sided arrow. This means, that the file/directory has been NTFS compressed. Somewhere in your file system you activated the NTFS compression. You probably got a disk space warning and activated the compression there. Right click the drive where BattleForge is located and click Properties. The on the "General" tab click "Advanced". You will see a few checkboxes. Uncheck the checkbox "Compress contents to save disk space" (see image). But be sure, that you have enough free disk space on the physical drive.

That checkbox was already unchecked.

I'm using windows 10 and after I press play there is a little sound but i don't know what it means.

It's only a guess but it sounds like windows prevents the start of BF even though my firewall and other antivirus software is turned off.

Did you check the Windows Application Event Log for any errors after this "sound"? Also please provide another screenshot of your folder like @Ultrakool suggested.
