I've also been having that reported issue with the game locking up and not getting to the menu with the loose files edition. Specifically, it does so during the splash screen about copyrights and middleware credits, and I have to break out task manager. I'm not sure if it's a crash or a load so long it looks like one. I've uninstalled my other mods (an idle stand change and the mission replay on it's own) before putting this in as well. By contrast I got the pack file install to run, though my crashed my game so hard I had to use the switch on my computer to shut it off lmao. It's been running fine since.
