Problem Details:
Attempt to start game, osu! logo shows then exception thrown for missing XNA framework resources..
Paste of full exception http://pastebin.com/9HaGD19n

Have tried the https://osu.ppy.sh/forum/t/257615 manual update, and https://osu.ppy.sh/forum/t/262822 as that seemed similar (using the old osume.exe updater) and neither have had any useful effect..

There's nothing helpful in the osu! directory, and nothing in Windows' own logs.. that pastebin of the exception is all I've got too :(

Just tested installing fresh osu! in a new, empty, directory.. works fine. Ran osu!install.exe inside my old osu directory, and get the same exception as before.. something is definitely broken somewhere with my current copy of osu!
Further; even after deleting all the hidden files from my current copy (codecs, direct3d, MS libs, osu!*.dll files) still get the same..

Something broke with your osu!.exe. Try copying the executable over from your fresh osu! install.

the existing osu!.exe and the fresh one are identical - tried it anyway just in case but still the same exception. definitely seems to be that config file..but what/why is beyond me at the moment..

After tirelessly going through every setting in the cfg file, figured this out. For some reason, height and width being set to 1080 and 1920 rather than both 9999 caused that exception. Bit of a weird exception to get considering the cause, but there we are..
