How to Install Dying Light Update v1.5.0 and Fix Game Launch Issues
Dying Light is a popular action RPG game developed by Techland and released in 2015. The game features a dynamic day and night cycle, parkour movement, and zombie combat. However, some players have reported problems with launching the game after installing the latest update v1.5.0, which was released on May 9th, 2023.
In this article, we will show you how to install the update v1.5.0 and fix the game launch issues using a simple installation fix provided by BAT, a group of game crackers. This fix will restore some unnecessary game files that were deleted by Steam during the update process, which caused the game to refuse to start.
Step 1: Download the Installation Fix
The first step is to download the installation fix from one of the following links:
The file size is about 4 MB and it contains a folder named \"Dying.Light.Update.v1.5.0.Installation.Fix-BAT\". Extract the folder to your desktop or any other location.
Step 2: Copy the Files to the Game Directory
The next step is to copy the files from the folder \"Dying.Light.Update.v1.5.0.Installation.Fix-BAT\" to your game directory, where you have installed Dying Light. The default location is \"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Steam\\steamapps\\common\\Dying Light\". If you have changed the location, you can find it by right-clicking on Dying Light in your Steam library, selecting \"Properties\", clicking on the \"Local Files\" tab, and then clicking on \"Browse Local Files\".
Once you have located your game directory, copy all the files from the folder \"Dying.Light.Update.v1.5.0.Installation.Fix-BAT\" and paste them into your game directory, overwriting any existing files if prompted.
Step 3: Delete the Debug Key from Steam
The final step is to delete the debug key from Steam, which was also removed by the update v1.5.0 and may cause some errors when launching the game. To do this, open Steam and go to your library. Right-click on Dying Light and select \"Properties\". Click on the \"General\" tab and then click on \"Set Launch Options\". A window will pop up with a text box. Delete any text that is in the box and click on \"OK\". Close the properties window and exit Steam.
Step 4: Launch Dying Light and Enjoy
Now you are ready to launch Dying Light and enjoy the game with the latest update v1.5.0 installed. To launch the game, you can either double-click on DyingLightGame.exe in your game directory or open Steam and click on \"Play\" under Dying Light in your library.
