    "First of all, please do the following:

    - If you have Razer Chroma SDK installed on your PC, please uninstall it - it has been causing problems with multiple games recently and we know it's preventing Frostpunk from launching;
    - Reinstall the game;
    - Verify game's files via Steam (How? Just right click on Frostpunk -> Properties -> Local files -> click on Verify Integrity of Game Cache...);- Update your graphics card drivers;
    - Update your DirectX and Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package;
    - If you're forcing anti-aliasing from graphics card control panel - be sure to disable it;
    - Run the game in windowed mode;
    - If you are using custom resolution and/or downsampling, disable it;
    - Disable Steam in-game overlay;
    - Be sure to launch the game as the administrator;
