War thunder was working fine before... got a new NVMe drive and clean install Win10 onto the new drive. Installed War Thunder, game downloads, I sign into the game. I get into the game, it shows me the aircraft hangar then goes to the vehicle hangar... and stays there. Just keeps loading and loading and loading, the circle just keeps going 'round and 'round. All I can see is the tank, then the loading text and circle. No menu, no UI. No way to exit except ALT+F4. Reboot does not fix it.
After a few reboots, WT now tries to start up my VR as well even though I've done nothing to set it up this way. Going into the game, I'm still stuck on the garage screen with no menu UI.
Any help appreciated.
