Hello!

I've been looking forward to playing The Banner Saga for a while now. I saw that it was on sale here on GOG so I had to go for it. Unfortunately, I can't launch the game. A window opens with a red screen and the text 'Console Error!' pops up. I've been looking for fixes online but I can't find any definitive solutions. I've tried the VC++ fix that I usually see but it hasn't changed anything. Has anyone else experienced this and fixed it? Would appreciate any help. Thanks!

Hi there,

Please forgive the late response to this! We apologize that you had this issue with the game.

We have had other players fix this issue by running the game in Windows 8 compatibility mode.

You may also wish to try uninstalling and reinstalling the game.

I could fix that problem with installing the Adobe Acrobat Reader. After that I could start and play the game.
