Amnesia: TDD Won't Load

Solved: 6 Years, 11 Months ago Amnesia: TDD Won't Load
I bought Amnesia two days ago and it worked fine, and the next day when I opened it, I had changed the mouse sensitivity in the menu since it wasn't to my liking, and when I hit "okay" the game crashed. Now if I try to launch the game, the "preparing to launch" window pops up for two seconds, Steam says I'm playing the game for a moment, but absolutely nothing happens with the game itself. No menu, nothing. I've tried updating my driver, restarting my computer, re-installing the game, re-installing steam, verifying the cache (as it was purchased on Steam), running it from inside the game files, but it hasn't helped.

The hpl.log should be attached, so I hope someone can help.

The file didn't attach, so I'll just put it here

One of the problems with Steam is that the Steam Overlay can cause issues on some computer systems for whatever reason.

Try disabling that for Amnesia by right clicking Amnesia in Steam, clicking on Properties and from the General Tab, disabling the Steam Overlay.

I just checked the Steam overlay and it was already off. Is there anything else I could try?

Oh wait, I got it to work by deleting the settings I had changed. Thank you for the advice, though! I'll be sure to keep that in mind if I have any more issues.

If it happens to you again with another setting or so, you basically have to follow Problem A3 of the Troubleshooting Guide to reset game settings. I'll now close this one as the problem is solved.
