Rust crashing on start-up even after a complete reset of computer (And many other tries)

I’m hoping someone with knowledge of this glitch in the game will see this thread, as i have had this problem with the game since i first bought the game. I have managed to get into the game, and i love it, but this crashing on start-up is really disappointing for me.
My PC specs are
Graphics Card: XFX R9 280
CPU: AMD FX-6300
Memory: 8GB G.Skill
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
Hopefully someone can help me get this sorted, but for the meanwhile i’ll have to stick to not being able to play rust.

mine is doing this now also was working fine before patch now its crashing just before the main menu pops up
