Alright, so yesterday I reinstalled Sins after a mod failed to completely uninstall after disabling and revalidating.
After reinstall, the menu screen successfully loads, but as soon as I click 'Play' the Sins.exe loads and immediately freezes, causing me to be stuck at loading and forced to end it using Task Manager (via the keyboard only because the cursor becomes frozen).
I have tried completely 'purging' Sins from my computer, but Stardock's instructions for a purge are a bit outdated for the Steam version so I can't be sure that I got everything (There is no ProgramData folder, much less a License file). The two places I know Sins files exist are in my steamapps folder and My Games in Documents.
On an important note -- the dev .exe works just fine. It dumps this file when I run it, and I've only bumped into this error when loading a tutorial mission (Sins is in my D drive but there is no D:\SinsRebellion?)
But I'm completely lost right now. I feel like my computer is cursed to never run Sins again, even though I theoretically wiped all traces of it from my computer before theoretically starting anew.
Any ideas where to go from here?
