Can't start new game

  • Branch: Live Branch Version: Windows Pending

After buying the games years ago I wanted to play it again.

When I start the game up and select new Game everything works ok. After the loading screen finishes with "Adventures await" the game shows a grey square in the right upper corner and I am back in the menu. 

Tried to delete the userpreferences file in documents but the same crash still occurs. Game is fully upgarded and I checked the file integrity with steam. 

Can't add an output file as it seems to not exist in the folder.

Steps to Reproduce
Start game, klick new game, no changes just start world generation, wait for the loading screen to end, crash

Status: Pending

My first method to solve this is to completely delete and re-download ONI through the steam interface, to ensure that it is not a bad download or corrupted file. Steams checksum system for verifying file integrity is not 100% in my experience.

The latest version for ONI is LU-372041, which is visible from the menu screen in the bottom center.

If that doesn't work, ensure that your computer meets the minimum specs for ONI, as well as checking for any graphics card or Windows updates.
