Rust Will Not Start

Rust is stuck at the “Running Self Check” screen. I have already redownloaded the game and re-verified the game’s files. Any fix for this?

Having same problem here. Legacy works fine but experimental just wont load past the running self check screen. Using a GTX 970. Any Help Much appreciated!!!
