FSO stopped launching after I tried playing BtA
To get it out of the way, I can't get a log because the game doesn't even start, no log is ever generated with either the Debug or the Normal builds.

I finished BP today and wanted to play something else, so I picked BtA, when I got the following error:


My "Preferred Engine Stability" setting was on Stable, so I tried RCs. After the RCs downloaded, I tried running BtA, but nothing happened besides the "FSO is launching..." prompt briefly flashing on Knossos' status bar but the game never actually started.
I tried reverting back to Stable and it failed again. Then I tried running a mod I had been playing: BP. The same "FSO is launching..." message, but no game.

I then tried running just Retail FS2 and same result "launching..." then nothing. Then I tested running Retail FSO with 3.8.0-3 instead of 19.0.0. This worked, and all mods that are compatible with 3.8.0-3 still work too.

So I tried Verifying File Integrity on FSO and it said there were no problems.
I outright deleted my 19.0.0 folder to force it to redownload. However, the problem persists after the redownload. 

(I also tried rebooting my computer a few times along the process described above)

I have no idea what to try anymore.
Potato!

1) Are you running Knossos 0.14? - Because that sounds similar to a bug in Knossos 0.13.3

2) The build that error message is referrencing is a Nightly - have you tried the Nightly release channel?
(Note: you shouldn't be on the Nightly release channel unless you are developing something, but sometimes a release may jump the gun because a specific feature is required)

Re: FSO stopped launching after I tried playing BtA
Yeah, I'm on 0.14.

I have tried the latest Nightly too, none of the mods or even Retail FS2 launch in 19.0.0 or higher anymore. Even if I download a version I never had it also won't launch.

Btw here's a knossos log of my latest attempt: I try launching BtA, then Retail FS2, it doesn't seem to throw any error into the logs:

Update: If I spam-click "Play", sometimes the game will launch. Not guaranteed to work, though
