I've downloaded and installed Atomic Tanks on several machines now (two virtual, two real). It crashes immediately upon being started in all cases. I've run it from a USB stick or straight from the hard drive. Same effect in either case. I've redownloaded and even confirmed MD5 signatures (using Portable MD5Sum). No changes. I've also tried running the launcher directly (as well as the "atanks.exe" file in the App folder) from the command line to no avail.
In all cases where the official startup is used this is what happens (running atanks.exe directly skips the splash screen portions, naturally):
- The splash screen starts.
- A window displays briefly (as in a fraction of a second -- just enough to see that it's there).
- The window disappears.
- The splash screen disappears.
When I run these from the command line I get no feedback of any kind. No text telling me of a failure and/or its reasons.
What else is there to do? Where else can I find information that explains the crash with an eye toward the developers fixing it?
