You landed on this page because the game detected an error to start the game.
The problem occurred because of an initialization issue of the Vulkan runtime which the game relies on to properly start up.
The issue is known to occur when using NVIDIA graphics card drivers in the version range of 457.51-461.72 on older Windows 10 versions (Version 1803 and older).
The issue is known to occur in cases of a broken/incompatible Vulkan runtime (left-over AMD Vulkan runtime being used with an NVidia card after having manually removed the amd-vulkan64.json file in the Windows system directory).
You can verify whether this is the case by running the vulkaninfo tool (see the Wiki link further down below) and check whether the output you get reports the following error:
If the described problem matches yours and you manually removed the specified amd-vulkan64.json file, please restore the file from your backup. If after doing so starting the game still redirects you to some other page, follow the instructions provided on that particular page.
This issue applies to cases where you have an AMD graphics card installed and reverted the installed drivers to some older version (possibly also uninstalling a manually installed graphics card driver which then will install the Windows provided default (old) driver).
To resolve the issue, please make sure to install the latest available AMD graphics card driver for your system (either the recommended or the optional version).
If you ended up on this page and the steps above don't apply (or don't resolve) the issue for you, please send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (Subject: "X4-131 - Exitcode 205 - Windows"), attach a screenshot of the popup you get when starting the game, the crash dump, the dxdiag and the vulkaninfo. This wiki entry explains how to create the vulkan info output and this page explains how to locate the dump file on your drive.
We are currently investigating the exact circumstances which can lead to this happening on Linux machines.
Originally this startup error was known to occur in a very specific and limited situation only and hence was very rare to run into.

Fehler taucht auf und ist für mich als Nutzer wirklich NERVIG! Da ich als GForce-Nutzer nicht auch noch Lust habe solche Probleme zu lösen!
