Default Serious sam random encounter error when loading

So I did some searching and nothing about this specific error coming up. Got the game on steam yesterday. Loading it up, all iget at the title screen is

"unexpected error when running the game" and it crashes every time. I have tried re-installing, verifying, restarting steam, restarting my pc, turning off my firewall, I don't even have antivirus installed except for spybot.

win7 64bit.

Bonus info! im not sure if its normal, but looking through the files the only thing in there is an exe with a bunch of sounds files.

Full system specs?

If it fails to work even after reinstall & verifying game cache on Steam I guess it's a bug.

Just .exe & sound files is ok, it's not supposed to have any more files than that save for .sav files for savegames and a config.txt (which are created by the game anyway). And some weird endl.ess file (maybe ingame created too).

Don't know what to suggest really, maybe try setting the two values in config.txt to 0 if that file is there. Or reset graphics driver settings to default, maybe it conflicts with them or something.
