Game crash on start - fmodex.dll - willing to gift Walking Dead DLC for working solution

posted by econojo on - Viewed by 6.9K users

Same problem that has been posted often of Poker Night 2 crashing on start. Black screen and then instant crash. Wonder if anyone had any new bright ideas?

I am willing to gift Walking Dead DLC to anyone who comes up with a working solution.

Things I tried:

  1. Unplug all USB and everything
  2. Ran as administrator
  3. Tried compatibility at all different settings
  4. Re-installed C++ runtime
  5. Tried earlier version of fmodex.dll
  6. Full Windows update and restart
  7. Verified game cache
  8. Turned off Steam Overlay
  9. Run the program outside of Steam
  10. Fresh reinstall
  11. No compatibility mode for Steam

Please note that this game was working on my machine previously and I have many Steam achievements with Poker Night 2 and Inventory. I uninstalled the game for a while and re-installed it and have ran into this problem. Please help! Lappy 486 info below:
