I am currently unable to play, or even start, Torchlight 2. So, lets get to it.
I am running Windows 7, preordered and preloaded the game through steam. Today at around 3 pm EST, I tried to launch the game. It said that it had not yet been released, then uninstalled, reinstalled, and changed "pre-load" to "play." I clicked play, it showed a white screen and the computer crashed. I reset, launch steam, and the game is uninstalled. It redownloads (third time downloading now) and I try to launch it again. I now, consistently, get the message "Unable to determine file type (best guess ASCII). You need to save the file as unicode -recommend doing it in wordpad." It does not say what file as it is cut off, but it is in the "C>Users>Computer>Documents>My Games>Runic Games>Torchlight 2>Local_Settings" or thereabouts. On crashing, it gives me a crash report. The crash report then crashes too.
I uninstalled the program myself (add/remove program) and tried to launch it again, same result.
