yeahhhh, and for some BS reason, Xbox App wont even let me to purge the whole old install folder clear, so I can have actually FRESH install and get it back working this way, after bugged Updating ended up with my game deleted

if youre on console, im not surprised u cant “purge” the old install folder

Im surprised coz its on Windows10 PC with Gamepass, of all things! That Consoles have issues with that is easy to understand, there’s a reason why WinPC is much more mod-able when it comes to games
