Just updated Don't Starve. Now when I click on Steam to play the game i hear the music and a black screen comes up. Music keeps playing but no buttons or links come up with it. This didn't happen before! Please HELP!

I have the same issue as Fullysikbro. It opens up a windowed version when launched and only plays the title music. I tried clicking where the buttons would be to play and it only opens up my internet browser with a steam seach for Klei Entertainment and lists all of the games and demos released by steam. I had no issues with the game until the 11-27 update but I have not been able to play since then

steam>library>don't starve (right click on it)>properties>local files>check the game files

if it doesn't help, go and reinstall game (it's just 200mb so it's not a problem!?)

I am also having this issue.

I'm not seeing anything in the Windows Event viewer that might help.

Deleting local content and reinstalling isn't helping.

I'm running on AMD/Radeon mix of hardware. Windows 7.

How can we help you to resolve this issue? I want to play :(

uninstall game using steam.. (library)

C:\Users\user_name\AppData\Local\Temp delete all files there

update graphic card drivers. (remember that you must uninstall existing driver first)

( be secure using regcleaner! don't delete all logs, only don't starve! :p )use regcleaner or CCleaner and delete all don't starve logs

download game again from steam.

Give me a moment to find the chrome steps.

1 -) Open the folder C: \ Program Files \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ dont_starve \ VCRedist and install vcredist_86x (or other name) (*86x for me but my pc is 64x*).

2 -) Open the folder C: \ Program Files \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ dont_starve \ DXRedist and install DXSETUP.

If that does help, check this thread. http://forums.kleientertainment.com/showthread.php?2612-General-Game-Troubleshooting-Guide

If that thread doesn't correct it, we need to know about it. As far as we are aware, except for very unique circumstances this thread should resolve all issues that are keeping people from playing the game. (who meet min spec)
