I have that issue and after about 2 min of waiting it comes up with a crash report. after i close the crash report the play button is lit up like normal. do i need to reload the game or is there an easy fix for this? It has been doing this since 2 updates ago.

The Play button staying grayed out is often due to internet security programs like an anti virus app. You might try temporarily disabling any that you use to see if they're interfering.

We've also added a new repair tool in the game 's launcher you can use to check for any file corruption. It's located under the Help tab in the launcher.

@CODERED2379 - is there a code that was generated with your crash report?

I am having this problem now also.

I have disabled all my control programs to see if any are causing the problem and nothing works.

I did recently change ISP providers so i am guessing that is the problem ?

And the help button only shows a listing of "Technical support", i see nothing about checking for file corruption.
