I will note that this new version (linked to by A Bad Feeling above) works perfectly for me. (I'm waiting excitedly for my first bug!) :cD

The Quick Fix has my game running as well. Thank You XD.

These sure are good news to the developers!

Please, anyone who checked this possible "solution" come back here with some feedback. I believe it helps the devs a lot!

Sadly, as stated in the fix, there are a few bugs with the new system. Such as,

Traps not working, while the animal dose get caught in the trap. picking up the trap dose not give you meat and dose not degrade the trap.

Bunnies not reappearing,after night time comes bunnies wont reappear the following day, ever. Interestingly not being around the rabbit hole when night comes can negate this. Rabbits actually do come back out, but are invisible rendering basically the same results.

(Visual) Less of a bug than a small (and i mean small) visual glitch when the character is idling causing a static like effect, or, black pixels on his face.

(Audio) Caught animals in traps noise will repeat if you leave an animal trapped, regardless of distance traveled from it.

Tall Birds, and their nests, might not be spawning. (wait found some)

All right that about dose it for me. cant really find anything else of particular note.

Just came around for another go. and i found out a new one.

(Crash) Trying to catch butterflies with a net crashes the game.

Didn't play five minutes more and found two more bugs.

(Bug) Digging up bushes after being re-planted causes them to be turned into twigs. This seems to be coupled on the new Fertilizer requirement for replanted bushes, and is not a bug.

(Bug) Having two of the same tool at the same time degrades both tools when using one or the other. (This might also be part of a random tool duplication glitch with items in the backpack. These items, while usable, will degrade both the original and the copied tool. Trying to equip both tools, at the same time, will reverse the glitch.)

I am having the same issue as several other users. The game demo works fine in a browser, i purchased it on steam, and the graphics are unplayable. I have had no luck messing with the openGL settings, resolutions, screen mode, etc.

Edit: It was using the HD4000, it works fine when I force it to use the NVS 5400M

I just wanted to add that my version started working. I let it run even longer, but I also went through and checked my sound settings and it seemed to start working after that.

The reason I mention it is that a another person I know with the game had it work fine. Until the game got muted (in Win7), then it would do the same freezing and high CPU usage that mine was doing. When it was unmuted and restarted, it seemed to work fine again. Their log file was the same as mine too.

The beta finally let me play this on Steam. Just one question: tha beta isn't synched with the official branch via Steam Cloud. I'm asking because I've already played some hours on another PC, but on the one who had problems there's no progress saved.

Hi, I`m new around here but I have the same problems that you have. And besides when I try to build de bee box it is also invisible rendering.

Ok, I have just confirmed that the glcrash fix will be making it's way to the next update Tuesday. We believe this will fix the vast majority of users experiencing this issue.

Those that may not be helped by this issue will be users whose graphic cards do not meet the minimum specs to play the game.

Thank you to all who helped us with the information and testing we needed to resolve this issue.

After a week of trying to get the game to load, I FINALLY got it to work. Like many others, it was my video driver that was causing it to crash. Both Dell's and Nvidia's site told me that me that I had the latest drivers, but I re-installed them just in case. Unfortunately, that didn't work and I thought it was weird that the "latest" driver for my card was from 2007. I got my laptop in 2006, but I was pretty sure there had to be more driver updates beyond 2007.

I came across an application that did what Dell and Nvidia couldn't and it found all of the latest drivers for my components. Turns out I had 17 out of date drivers. It updated my video driver to the latest version (2011) and BAM, Don't Starve was finally playing on my screen.

People who have managed to run the game, tell how they got here because I'm already going crazy from trying.

Have reinstalled and updated the drivers, installed and reinstalled the game, I've used the beta glcrash and none of it worked.

Please which program with which way, you could play Don't Starve !
