DST won't start up

Recommended Posts

My game won't start. Simple as that. It just shows a black screen for a second and then sends me back to my library. I've uninstalled/reinstalled. Verified game files. Completely deleted all the files myself and redownloaded. I've checked what graphics card it's running on. I've tried to get help from steam(they don't know what to do) .I've tried to get help from Klei(they haven't responded). I've waited months(it stopped working in february). I just don't know what to do. This is one of my favorite games and I'm really bummed that it's not working. I have 90 hrs in it and I've bought dlc so this really sucks. Please help

This is my ticket: #97047

I have had a chance to look over the support site and none of the suggestions helped. I'm not using that graphics card either. 

I just replied to the email because I didn't fully read it before but I did just now.

If you have any further ideas then I would really appreciate them
