    Status: NEW


    Bug Description: When I added Region and Language to my serverconfigRWG[...].xml file for a private dedicated server the server no longer starts up. It bounces back and forth between NullReferenceExceptions for MainMenuMono.Update() and GUIWindowManager.Update() (see below).


    NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
      at MainMenuMono.Update () [0x0000d] in <d4ada918396a4fec85e8744f879cad41>:0

    NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
      at GUIWindowManager.Update () [0x00215] in <d4ada918396a4fec85e8744f879cad41>:0


    Detailed steps to reproduce the bug:


    1) Update linux dedicated server files through steamcmd with anonymous login

    2) Add Region and Language properties to serverconfig.xml file

    3) Read log file with tail -f [Path to output_log.txt file] in a terminal window while running the startserver.sh script in a separate terminal window.


    Actual result: Never ending nullref loop.


    Expected result: Server loads assets as observed by reading the log file.
