Oooh so you must be new to DB. ShooterEngine.ini is a configuration file for all Unreal3 games, DB's ShooterEngine.ini has a ton of options you can edit to make the game run like less of a stuttering mess. A lot of players end up messing with it to make the game run better, it also creates issues half of the time.

 

Since you haven't done that yet you'll probably want to reinstall DirectX 9 and your graphics drivers.

I did a clean installation of Windows 10 (Fall Creators Update) and installed all the drivers. Didn't fix anything

Did you verify the game files?

Yes for both CSGO and Dirty Bomb. Also uninstalled and installed again.

 

Changing the resolution to anything except 1920x1080 fixes the problem. If i set it to 1920x1080 i get the same error... wtf
