Starbound stuck at loading and unable to launch server

    Hi! Previously I had been having no problems with launching Starbound, but after I downloaded the new patch something seemed to have happened. I can launch the game but it sits at the loading screen for eternity. Also, when I try to use my server, which had previously worked fine, I get the message "StarException Named config function 'depth2' defined twice, second time from /biomes/oredistributions.configfunctions
    0041A34F (C:/starbound/source/game/StarRoot.cpp:130)
    ... (3)
    00401413
    (e:\p\giaw\src\pkg\mingwrt-4.0.3-1-mingw32\bld../mingwrt-4.0.3-1-mingw32-src/src/libcrt/crt/crt.1c:254)
    00401585

    I've deleted my Starbound files twice and re-installed them, but nothing seems to be working at all.

      Having this same problem since update evening of December 11th. Just stuck on 'Loading' forever, no changes. Error code I get for Server startup:

      StarException: Named config function 'depth2' defined twice, second time from /biomes/oredistributions.configfunctions
      0041A34F (C:/starbound/source/game/StarRood.cpp:130)
      ... (3)

      SOLUTION FOUND

      The game isn't sanity checking the files in the directory. I had a backup of oredistributions.configfunctions titled 'oredistributions.configfunctions - more coal' in the directory, and evidently it was loading either that or both files. Deleted the backup file, everything worked fine.

        You made a backup copy of your oredistributions.configfunctions file, and left it in the folder. The game client tries to load -everything- under the assets subdirectory, regardless of file extension. Remove the oredistributions.configfunctions backup file and try again.

          I deleted this file and then my game told me that I had more duplicate files of another file. I don't though, so I don't really understand what is going on.

                I to am stuck just on the loading screen. I figured maybe if I just wait but I have roughly 20 min in the game and all of it was spent on the loading screen. no error messages or anything.

                    My solution was right clicking it in Steam selecting properties, then selecting Local files and clicking Verify Integrity of Game Cache...

                    Hope this helps ;3

                        The thing is, this thread is referring to an older version of the game. Since it's is no longer relevant, locking.
