Rust has been playing fine, more or less, sense i purchased the game in the beginning of this year. Just today though, I went to start the game today, I chose experimental (which i just rented a server for), got to the configuration window. When I click play, the window expands and immediately closes =(. I have verified my game cache, restarted my computer and so forth and i am completely up to date. The next step I am trying is to uninstall and re-install the the game
has anyone had a similar issue or know how to fix this?
I would like to mention that last night, before I left for the night, there was a strange server bug occurring. I was playing with two other members of my gaming community. everything was going well until one of my buddies randomly died from nothing. we had a house build and sleeping bags, so we didn’t think it would be a big deal. That is, until he chose to spawn on his sleeping bag. He spawned in a random location; however, there was a sleeper with his name laying on his sleeping bag. We confirmed that he was physically in another location and would kill the clone. When the close died, all 3 of our games crashed but nobody else on the server was effected. This happened a few times, in fact, at one point there were three clones on the sleeping bag. I stopped playing because it was late and i was tired of the crashes. then when I tried to open rust today, it closes as it opens.
The initial re-installation is almost complete. IF this does not fix the issue, what else can I try to fix this issue?
