Hey everyone! I bought Exiled Kingdoms off the Steam website, and am having troubles trying to play it. I can get to the title screen but then both of my monitors (yes, I am using dual monitors) go black, and at that point my computer is unresponsive and I have to actually unplug and plug it to get back to my desktop. I am not sure why this is happening, so I posted a thread on the Steam discussions page for Exiled Kingdoms. I was put in touch with a developer of this game, who asked me to provide some information about my computer so we can figure out what the problem is and how to fix it. Here is the requested information... I am using Windows 10 Home, my graphics card is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070, and my current resolution is 1920x1080 (32bit)(60Hz). I was also asked to provide the contents of a file, namely, " init_log.txt ". Should I post those contents here?

Yeah, post it here please. Also try a game reinstall, and as a test try to unplug one of your monitors (should work fine with both, but it might be some configuration)

I will do a reinstall, and do you have a preference between what monitor I should unplug? What about running my monitors on duplicate (making it so that both monitors show the same thing)?
