Been having this problem for the last two days and managed to find a temporary solution that no longer works.
When I press play in steam it brings up the select rust or directx9 rust, I always pick the top from there is where the problem starts. The Rust configuration window pops up and is utterly unresponsive. I can’t change any settings, press play, hell, I can’t even close the window with out using task manager. At first if I just reset my computer and pressed play it would work, but it doesn’t seem to anymore.
I’ve uninstalled, reinstalled, verified cache, looked for solutions online but haven’t been able to find anything to resolve this problem. Hoping someone can help me because I’m at my wits end here, I really love this game and would love to play it more.
