Ive been having the same issue for a few months now. I've deleted all my files and reinstalled. Selectively deleted 'music' and 'playerprofile' folders, but nothing.

Hi @VoidCurse and @Matt7, sorry for the slow response.

It looks like your client.ini is corrupt. Can you remove the [audio] section? Mine looks like this:

volume_ambient = 10
volume_sfx = 10
volume_music = 10

Delete those lines and you should be able to run the game. If that doesn't work, try renaming client.ini to client_corrupt.ini and running the game again.

On Windows, your client.ini is located here:


(Hit WindowsKey+R, paste that path, hit enter.)

Changed Status to Fixed

I manually corrupted my own ini file and figured out a fix!

(Doesn't fix whatever corrupted your ini, but the game won't crash for this specific corruption.)
