    I just shot my game :D...

    What I did:
    Had mods loaded, firetuner open and then changed the "Name" from an InGameUIAddin EntryPoint in a modinfo. This lead to immediate crash and now I can not start the game anymore (crashes after loading screen, before main menu).

    Tried to solve:
    I deleted whole cache folder, but still does not work.
    I also checked game files via steam, it replaced 3 files.
    But the game still crashes...

    No DLC-Modpack installed.

    Running Visual studio attached to civ gives me, that the callstack is in "msvcr90.dll", so maybe I somehow destroyed this dll?!

    Anyone as an advice how to fix this?!

    deleted the whole civ 5 folder in MyGames folder solved the problem. Willl try to find out what exactly it was.

    hm.. it is my mod that I currently build, that is causing the crash, only for being in my mod folder, the game will crash.
    Guess I made a typo or sth in the modinfo, that caused the crash, but cant find it, last thing I changed is the "Name" of my InGameUIAddin:

    Spoiler :

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

        <EntryPoint type="InGameUIAddin" file="StratBuildMalus.lua">

    edit: found it, the Actions should be look like this, if it should be empty:
    <Actions />
    no the crash reason was indeed the InGameUIAddin, it needs a "Description" otherwise it crashes... stupid. <Description>StratBuildMalus</Description>
