    Anybody else having any issues? I'm getting stuck on the load screen. It just remains black although the music plays. It won't go to the login screen. I had two updates. One was around 6.5 gig and the other was 2.1 gig.

    I just updated from R54 to R55 -- it's loading OK for me -- have you tried running the .exe directly outside of Steam?
    I.e. \SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\SotA\Shroud of the Avatar.exe

    Also - maybe make sure your video drivers are latest/greatest - and try rebooting?

    If still having issues - maybe do a file integrity check via Steam? (right click the game, pick properties, goto local files tab, select verify integrity...)

    I shutdown and restarted already and it didn't help. I tried a shortcut on my screen but I think it still went through Steam. I'm running an integrity check now. I'll try the avatar.exe if the integrity check doesn't change anything.

    The integrity checked finished and downloaded a file which fixed it. Thanks for the help.
