So, While I was a Counter-Strike nut from like 1999-2005, I haven't played much since then, and only have a few hours in GO. I've had it installed, but haven't fired it up in probably at least two years. My stepson asked me to play today, so I figured why not. I guessed I'd probably have to redo all my keyboard mappings and, mouse sensitivities, etc, but instead I've run into some sort of game breaking problem. The game takes surprisingly long to start, I see a brief splash screen, then back to desktop, then the music starts playing, but nothing displays on screen. Sometimes I have to click, sometimes just wait, and a still version of the menu pops up, stays for a second and then disappears to desktop, then it continues this forever, staying on desktop for like 10 seconds, popping up a still screen for one second and then disappearing to desktop again, over and over. Even the menu is impossible to use. I cant even get to the settings screen to see if anything crazy is going on. See below: Everything else on my machine seems to be running just fine, including several other games. I've googled the crap out of it, and while I find many people complaining of the game minimizing for one reason or another, no one's symptoms appear to match mine. I tried checking the steam game files. It found one file that was problematic and redownloaded it, but the problem persists. Has anyone seen anything like this before? Any suggestions? Much appreciated.
