Game won't launch anymore in DirectX 12 [Solved]

Game won’t launch anymore in DirectX 12. I got a blue screen playing and when i rebooted the game stopped launching. I get the launcher open and click play and then nothing happens. DirectX11 still works though so i at least got that but would like to use X12 instead like i have been doing. Anyone know any possible solutions, posting the event log below.

Try to remove this file :

C:\Users\XXXX\AppData\Local\IO Interactive\HITMAN2\ShaderCache.bin


That fixed it, sweet! Thanks man :smiley:

Nice. Shader cache corruption can happen after a blue screen, it’s often the solution for some games.

Did not know that, that’s useful to know.
