I have the TSM/P&N special edition that I purchased on Origin a few years back after losing my disc copy. Had a ton of issues getting it to launch on either Win 7 or 10 for the longest time, but found a workaround and was able to play fine for a while.
It's been 6 months, so I don't remember what the previous fix was. When I try to launch the game now, everything looks normal at first... but then, it automatically switches to windowed mode and stays on a black screen. And, if I tab, there's a new window with the error message: "service initialization failed" and a string of random letters/numbers.
Repairing the game does not fix the problem, and I am not having trouble with any other games. The only information I can find online is several years old and is for Mac users (I'm on PC). My system definitely exceeds the min. requirements, as this is a custom build that's less than a year old.
If anyone can help me track down a fix that's not a clean reinstall, I'd appreciate the help.
I own the store, as of 12/16/17!| Thank you
