I need help booting ow

i have tried pretty much everything and spent hours trying to fix ow but the same problem keeps occurring since today out of nowhere where i press start, bring me to a black screen, then back to the start page. I am not sure what to do from here help would be appreciated.

Hi there Fern,

I looked over this and know that crash issues like this are never fun. You just want to play the game and it is not working how it should.

On this one, I would ask that Discord overlay be disabled. The crash only calls out this as the cause.


If this does not help, we may just need the DxDiag to dig deeper.

DxDiag instructions (click to expand)
  1. Press Windows Key + R.
  2. Type DxDiag and then press Enter.
  3. In the DxDiag window, click Save All Information.
  4. Name the file something you can remember and click Save.

To add it to your reply here:

  1. Open the text file and copy all of the text.
  2. Paste the text in your reply.
  3. Highlight all of the text and click </> on the post editor.

Note: If your DxDiag does not fit in one message, you can break it up into two posts, or post it on Pastebin and provide the numbers/letters after the .com in your reply.

Let us know if this helps or not my friend.
