Every time I start the game up, the main menu interface loads for about a millisecond, then the screen reverts to the DOW3 main loading screen with the message "please wait" at the bottom of the screen. This screen remains and does not change. I can hit escape to bring up exit options but I cannot get past the loading screen to access the main menu, preventing me from playing the game. I have tried updating drivers, verifying game cache, restarting game, steam and computer a number of times as well as just waiting for the screen to resolve itself for about half an hour - nothing seems to work. Please help.
