Hello, bw-man,

thanks for letting us know about this issue that you are experiencing and we are sorry that it is happening to you.

Please try these steps in order to fix this issue (even though you are writing that you did some of these):

  • Verify your game files in Steam – right click on Space Engineers in Steam Library → Properties → Local Files → Verify Integrity of Game Files
  • Delete SpaceEngineers.cfg file (it means your game configuration will be deleted) – you can access your SpaceEngineers.cfg by typing %appdata% into your Windows search bar and you will be redirected to the hidden Roaming folder. After that just follow: \Roaming\SpaceEngineers.
  • Delete ShaderCache folder – same access as above
  • Back up your whole Space Engineers Roaming folder and delete it
  • Restart Steam
  • Reinstall VC Redist 2017
  • Update graphic drivers – the instalation might get corrupted when updating the drivers
  • Reinstall the game – please make sure that you actually perform clean install of the game. Check both folders with the game (the Roaming one and the one in Steam as well) and make sure that after uninstalling, there is nothing left. If yes, delete the leftovers. Restart your PC and try to intall the game anew.
  • Make sure your operating system is fully updated

Hope something from above list would work for you. Please let me know.

Kind Regards
