No matter what size map or the settings I choose my game will not progress past the setting up players point. I did get the game to work when I initially purchased my laptop on the Huge map size and 4k graphics on the 3rd of January 2021. I am playing on a Dell Inspiron 2 in 1 7506 with an 11th gen i7 4 Core and 8 Thread with16GB RAM and an Intel iRISxe MAX graphics card.
When I look at the performance tab of the task manager while in this state is CPU usage around 30, RAM usage around 10GB on tiny map, and next to no GPU usage.
I have attempted to uninstall the game a few times I have reinstalled, verified drivers are updated, and I have even reset the computer with the keep my files portion. I am at a loss for what the issue might be. I run the game through Steam and have "Verified the integrity of game files" on numerous occasions sometimes it states I have 3 files failed and it reacquires them however it still does not load past that earlier stated point. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
