    Same error, win 7 x64.


    "Run as admin" or UAC enabled - don't work for me.
    More fun:
    1. check "run as admin" in properties of launcher.exe, starbound.exe, starbound_opengl.exe, Steam.exe
    2. close steam
    3. run launcher
    4. press "Launch Starbound"
    5. get the game running! Steam starts and... launches one more launcher
    6. press "Launch Starbound" in second launcher
    7. get "access violation"
    8. search for support

    Hi there! I managed to solve this problem on my win XP 32bit by replacing file sdl.dll in win32 folder of the game.

    Yep, tried it all, nothing works!! Win7 64bit

    What is strange, is, the above-mentioned method did work for me until the update. Now all I get is the access violation error..

    I have completely deleted and re-installed Starbound twice now. Same old crud!

    The game has been running fine for me on Windows 7 64-bit, but I tried to run the multiplayer server after the patch and I experienced the access violation error every time I tried to run it.

    After trying nearly all the solutions suggested in this thread, none of which made a difference, I found another thread mentioning disabling UPnP Port Forwarding in the starbound.config file located in the main Starbound game folder. Once I changed the default "True" setting to "False" the server runs fine without the access violation error popping up. I hope this helps someone out there. :)

    I had this problem after my dedicated server (Server 2008r2) shut down uncleanly (power loss). Files in the 'Universe' folder under the game's root directory had become damaged since they were being accessed at the time of the power failure. The easiest thing to do in this case is to just remove your Universe folder (it gets recreated once you start the game again). This, of coarse, generates an entire new Universe, but I was able to copy all the .world files from my original Universe folder into the new Universe folder, restoring all the worlds I'd been to. Started the game back up with no problems! This folder seriously needs a periodic backup file created every 10 minutes or so. Since the .world files didn't seem to be the problem, I'm assuming it has to do with either the .DAT file or the database files... in any case, hope this works for ya!

    Quick Update on this: Also need to copy the .clientcontext files from the old "universe" folder - these maintain the players' current location in the Universe as well as their access in the universe (ie. Alpha, Beta, Gamma systems). Otherwise, you'll have to get all the tech upgrades again.

    InvalidToken Yeah, You!

    Try ignoring the errors and waiting for the game to load, it worked for me.

    For all thoes that have Windows 8, you need to upgrade to 8.1 for it to work. It worked for me and now i am playing the game with great frames and no issues

    Patch fixed nothing. A good way - to deliver content patches instead of fixing blockers.
