The game is Darkest Hour: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?threads/amd-crash-bug-needs-to-be-fixed.993630/
Lots of guys report that since updating AMD video card drivers, the game crashes on loading if you have chosen to use sprites.
The only fix I have found is to go back to driver version, 15.12 (I am using Windows 10, 64 bit).
Lots of guys using various pc and laptop setups, all report the same issue with AMD drivers.
To be clear when I use Win 10, 64 bit, version 15.12 drivers, there is no issue. The game loads and the sprites work.
Using any other driver since then, causes the game to crash on loading sprites.
Any advice would be appreciated, Thanks.
We replaced one of the sprites which was causing the problem.
Tested on Windows 10 pc, running the latest AMD graphic drivers. Game loaded with no problems.
