    So I've redownloaded the game several times and the shortcut the steam download makes doesnt seem to work but the executable one in the starbound files opens it at first it said i had an access violation a few times but that seemed to clear up after i used the asset_packer.exe and asset_unpacker.exe the game runs fine from the starbound.exe in the folder dunno if this will help anyone that might still be having troubles with it though

    Hi there.

    I have been playing Starbound for a while now and I love the game, but now every time i start it up Starbound it freezes. playing a repeating noise and rendering my computer completely unresponsive. I can't CTRL+ALT+DELETE, open Task Manager or do anything at all. The only way to fix this problem is by rebooting my entire computer.
    I have uninstalled/ reinstalled, used compatability mode, verified data, used admin. and pretty much everything else.
    This problem has happened 4 times today.

    All my drivers has been updated

    I need support.

    Win 10
    8 GB RAM
    Nvidia GTX 860M
    SSD 25 GB
    HDD 1 TB

    I have 2 problems right now
    1:the steam and x64(the type my PC is) both crash with a error, one that I've only seen slight hints of but not the exact crash error
    2:when I run theX32 in steam and from files, it gives me an error of a missing dll, just like the last case, has been reported on an untouched steam forum
    All this happened after I tried using amd driver updater, it breaking my driver, and reinstalling my driver with device manager
    EDIT: this is a repost

    Can someone tell me what's wrong?

    First it wouldn't ever launch and just say it was running but nothing appeared, then it got to the black screen with spinning logo and now won't even launch at all.

    I've removed all my workshop mods, I've deleted the folder and reinstalled twice.

    Have you unpacked your assets? There is still a file that is broken as well as a LOT of other broken things.

    /damage/elementaltypes.config

    And a lot of references to "money". Sounds like you have a lingering mod that you installed incorrectly.

    There is nothing in my steam workshop for Starbound, and I've complete deleted the folder. Where else would a lingering mod exist?

    How to do I make sure I unpacked everything?

    Well it is trying to load up a broken config file and that would only happen from a mod or if you tinkered with it yourself. Try in your assets folder.

    So after weeks of looking around for answers, reinstalling and downloading and installing I finally found the (An) Answer, unsub ALL mods on steam. remove all manual mods and install them again, it's better than waiting for the game to install, and for my problem.. it worked! no harm in trying this answer ;)
