I just purchased the game (v1.5.7) and tried to launch it. The executable launches and it goes to the menu screen. Then there's a CTD with the following error message:

GK2Exception
An Error occurred while running Hegemony.
Could not lock vertex buffer. (Err: -2147467259, Resource:


Here are my computer specifications:

OS: Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit
CPU: Intel Core i7 2600K 64-Bit Quad Core 3.4GHz 8MB Cache
RAM: Strontium 16GB DDR3 1333MHz
Video: Palit GeForce GTX 690 4GB


Here are the game settings in the launcher:

Resolution: 1920x1080
Fullscreen: Yes
Detail: High
Advanced: (All High)


Is there anywhere I can upload the memory dump file?

Curiously, I tried launching the game in Windowed Mode and there's no more CTD after launch. However, I then switch to Full Screen Mode using the in-game settings, and still no CTD.

However, after setting it to Full Screen Mode in-game, closing and relaunching the game, the same CTD after launch issue occurs.
