F1 2018 won't start ( PC )


NaughtyLamb

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,
today I bought F1 2018 via G2A. It all worked fine, I typed the code into steam, got my game, everything was nice. As i finished downloading the game and tried to start it nothing happend. 
Steam showed me that it was running but nothing happend at all. After a few seconds the game closes.
I tried everything ( re-installing graphic drivers, re-installing the game, updated windows etc.) but nothing worked. This is kind of my last resort so I hope you can help me and I can race with my friends very soon.

Thank you very much,
sincerely Chris aka. NaughtyLamb

I had this problem this morning, fixed now, how I did it:

Go to the root F1 2018 folder (Program Files(x86) -> Steam -> Steamapps -> Common -> F1 2018) find the F1 2018 application there and run it as an administrator.

For me it said there was a missing .dll file so I downloaded it from the internet and dropped it in the root folder.

So run it as admin then tell me what happens

The top download is the one I used but it crashes for me everytime about 10 secs into a session but I am yet to test the other ones.
When I downloaded the game I was actually missing the file for whatever reason which stopped me from launching this morning.

Alright a mate at steam solved the problem for me ! 
I just copy-paste his answers here 

Found the problem. there is a folder missing in your "my games" folder.

C:\Users\Computer\Documents\My Games (path link)

You'll notice that folder doesn't contain a F1 2018 folder.

https://ufile.io/gl3dk - Go to that link and download that folder and drag it into your "my games" folder.

it should work after that.

yes . if you dont have f1 2018 folder in my games put the folder there.
my pc had f1 2017 in my games but it did not have f1 2018 in there on the other hand my sons pc had both f1 2017 and f1 2018 in his my games folder.
i copied his f1 2018 folder and put into my games in my pc , started the game and it worked.
hopefully this will fix your problem.

just go here on your pc 

C:\Users\Computer\Documents\My Games

if there is no f1 2018 folder you need to put there, if you do have f1 2018 in my games your problem is something else im afraid hope it works for you.

shout outs to Ozwegin on steam ^^ 
Nonetheless thank you very much ToothyTubs for your support.

re installing worked for me.

try shutting down your system than re installing.

Hope this helps.

Regards.

Well, this is an awful error that happens to me sometime ago.

The only thing that fix this error was changing the installation folder on Steam.

You can do that from the Settings and Downloads Section, there click on STEAM LIBRARY FOLDERS and add a new folder, maybe in a new drive.

Here you have more information how to move your games: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=7418-YUBN-8129

If you can't fix the error moving the folder, you can also try the following tips on this guide.
