Mordhau Bug.png

The game loads quickly, but the Mordhau loading screen doesn't go away, though it continues to load tips. The main menu flickers in and out of visibility but is active in the background of the loading screen as the buttons for play, settings, armory, etc work but after about a minute I'm met with this crash prompt.
Verified integrity of game files through steam, no problems.
Uninstall-Reinstall had no effect.

Had the exact same issue. Apparently what it's trying to do during the flickering loading screen is load and release the splash video.

Workaround:
If you're using a custom codec to override MP4s on your machine, find it and disable it. If this is your cause, this will let you load the video and get to the main menu.

Alternatively, if there's a flag like to skip the splash video, that would likely work better.

Side Note:
My problem was resolved after setting my main audio output device to regular speakers through AUX cord or HDMI, if i used my Turtle beach wireless headset that sends sound via USB, then the problem happens consistently.

This fixes the problem for me as well, I'm using a wireless turtle beach ear force stealth 450 headset, and switching my PC's main audio device before starting Mordhau to anything else besides that sees the game run fine, splash screen and everything. This fix also solved an issue in a different unreal 4 game I have, Squad, in which the splash video would not play but after a long black screen the game would load and run fine, using the fix everything works as intended.
Side note to a side note:
I have been able to get Mordhau to run while still using my headset, but only through a process of opening the application and alt+F4'ing at the first sign of a bug, after a few attempts (ranging anywhere from 2 attempts to 30) the game will load into a black screen for a few moments then loads the main menu and I can play without trouble until the next time I need to load the application. As annoying as it is, this will probably remain my main method for loading Mordhau until a fix for this bug is addressed, because I would rather deal with that then play with a bad audio setup and no mic. Also, just wana give a quick thank you to the community members and devs for their continued support and suggestions towards fixing these issues.
