I have

Sent crash reports via the unrealengine error screen with my steam64id attached
Attempted to run as administrator

I have used up 113 minutes of 'playtime' on steam due to the fact that each attempt to launch the game adds 2-3 minutes and I am about to lose my eligibility for a refund so until I hear back about any legitimate sounding fixes or updates, I am done trying to fix this bug all by myself.

Fixed / But still a problem

Running a server for another game on the same computer will prevent Insurgency from accessing its own files.
I would like to note that no other steam game in my experience has this requirement.
