Just purchashed, game constantly hanging
Just purchased via Steam. Game is very unstable. Most times when I try to start up game i see the first frame of the opening video and then the screen freezes but I still here the music play out. After that game is frozen. I have to force end task it. Try this several times and no joy. Restart PC and it might work. Then 5 minutes after playing it hangs again. Always seems to happen after a checkpoint. I am trying to just play the first new game.
I have looked in the log in space engieneers folder, but it shows nothing about any crashes, as the game seems to just hang. I have all windows updates up to date, and I have the latest GPU driver isntalled.
I have tried to install microsoft ,NET framework as suggested on website, but this is on the latest update. Tried repair thing. Nothing.
I have no stupid firewalls. I just use the Windows Defender.
Samsung 860 SSD Drive

As someone who has some experience with more technical things I caan try to work this. But from perspective of a new player, its quite dissapointing the support available to people having issues. Alot of the support on the website seems very much out dated.
Clear instructional help would be appreciated, otherwise I am one very unhappy customer.
