Hello,

Please contact me via the Forum's chatbox when you see me online on the Forum.

Meanwhile: how do you try to start the game?

Hello,

Glad we were able to solve it via TeamViewer quickly!
I already patched the game to the latest version for you, so that's probably the "Store Content patch", you can safely use that one, yes.

Please let us know if you need any more assistance at the moment or in the future!
