Newest update broke the game for me, getting "Couldn't initialize the render device" error from spark on launch. Was working perfectly last patch. I already tried forcing D3D11 and all the other default suggestions in the tech support into thread to no effect

Fixed.

Turns out someone added a dedicated build_329 D3D setting to the %addpada%/Natural Selection 2 settings xml file which defaulted to using D3D11 and overrode the original D3D setting. Why this was done is beyond me but changing it to D3D9 fixed it.
