    @Kryger As far as my C++ skills go it seems like the engine has issues calculating stuff. A floating point exception usually happens when a program is told to divide something by zero which of course is impossible.
    It might as well be related to the fact that Starbound requires stuff like the .NET and C++ frameworks on Windows and Linux doesn´t have soemthing alike (or the game doesn´t recognize it as such). My experience with Linux OSs is very limited but maybe a tool like WINE may help you. Here´s a link to that: https://www.winehq.org/

    Thanks man!

    The game supports Linux (see Steam page) - that is why I bought it.

    I'll need to get Steam for Windows installed under Wine and then try to install it. Then I am not sure how well it will run in Wine... If I could get a refund and wait until they fix it, that would be great, but I can't seem to get ANY response from Chuclefish :(

    Hello. I deleted the Starbound files and reinstalled it via Steam and it still doesnt work. It says RUNNING when I try to start it, it just jumps to SYNC and doesnt start at all. Pls Help I would really like to play the game again.

    You could try and look into how these code libraries (if that´s even a word) work on Ubuntu but that may be quite time consuming.
    And regarding WINE, your gear seems decent enough to run Starbound through it. We used to play Terraria with 4 people on a server hosted by a guy with a much less powerful computer using WINE on some Linux system, too, and it ran as it should if this proof enough for you.

    My PC runs other titles just fine, I do think it should handle Starbound. Not sure where to start with the libs - I have done some checks regarding libc, but without some help I don't know what to try...

    Regarding Wine, as it is also a Linux game, there are no recent guides, and the game does not even appear in the WineHQ database.

    Thanks again for the response, at lease someone does!

    thebestusername Yeah, You!

    My starbound technically launches. What it does is that it launches but it won't pop-up in my taskbar for me to play it, BUT READ THIS: Task Manager shows me that starbound is running.

    (Edit: I added all my Workshop items again and had to click on my Character two times - first time the Game closed - the second time he loaded up)

    (Possible Fix for Starbound Crash before CF Logo - Steam -
    Win 7 - read!)


    Hello,

    Today i wanted to start Starbound and it crashed just before showing the CF Logo as many of you described here.

    So i went on the hunt.

    1.
    I tried exactly what i later saw was suggested here and tried to run the 2015 Visual C++ redist. in the Steamfolder.
    I got no reaction at all, the installer seemed to just sit there.
    I went to google and found the same Page which was also presented here and downloaded the redists manualy.
    All of those told me either not possible or not neccessary to install.


    2. Windows Update:

    After all that i tried to launch my Windowsupdate and look here it wasn`t working either.
    So i found this Page and fixed my Windowsupdate by those instructions first.


    http://jndm.net/2011/09/28/how-to-f...r-updates-because-the-service-is-not-running/

    Worked like a charme.

    Next a full update search and update of all win 7 updates. ( I was missing all since December 2017 so not that much and there were some VisualC components included)

    After the install a few reboots...blabla

    Back in Windows i started Steam and lauched Starbound.
    It took a bit longer to load and crahed again back to Desktop before logo... (Rage^^)

    But i forgot something i experienced with Starbound mods (without workshop - manually installed mods) before:

    Some Programs or Games want/need a clean start - once!

    So Steamworkshop was the last problem.
    Edit: (Erase the Starbound folder manually!!!)
    Unsubscribed from all Starboundsteamworkshop Items + uninstall Game + reinstall Game = launch game via Steam with warningmessage about re-/and deinstalling mods.

    Summary:
    So one last time to be sure what fixed it for me.

    1. Follow the instructions on the Page where the link gets you.

    2. Run Winupdate and install all important Updates.

    3. Unsubscribe all Workshopitems in Starbound on Steam

    4. uninstall Starbound +
    Edit: (Erase the Starbound folder manually!!!)

    5. Wait for Windowsupdates to completely finish

    6. download Starbound via Steam
    (Don`t choose any Workshop items yet)

    7. As soon as Starbound has finished to download
    start it.
    After that you can ofc add Workshopitem, but please carefully^^

    8. hopefully it works for you as it did for me.

    1000. Buildbuildbuild - Oh and if you got time check out my Hylotl Planet in the Screenshotssection - will be uploaded as soon as possible :)


    BTW: Up until today Starbound worked via Steam for 1100 hours. Yesterday i was working on the Picure of the Hylotl Planet - 64300 px x 16000 px. Everything was working fine. I actually finished the picture and today i made a last check and found a missing spot. Thats when Starbound didn`t start anymore?!?!?!? Very, very strange.

    ..So. Run via steam, game IS running, the log is filling up with errors at FTL speed, and the game won't actually load in the bottom of the screen. So, I launched it 2 minutes ago, the log is already unable to open because it has too much on it.
    What has me confused the most is that it was working literally 3 days ago. And then it just went splat.
    EDIT: No workshop addons at all. And at this point I've basically tried everything. Uninstalled the game and reinstalled it, verified it, deleted the directory and reinstalled it after all that, and it still doesn't do anything.
    EDIT AGAIN AND NOW I'M INCREDIBLY ANGRY: Now it's working... What the blah is wrong with everything.

    Starbound doesn't work for me, and I have no idea what the problem is. I've uninstalled it and reinstalled it, I've restarted my computer, gotten rid of all my mods, nothing works. I have an HP Omen, with it's stock equipment and never had a problem playing the game before. But now, every time I try to play, all it does is show the chucklefish logo, and then the game crashes. On rare occasions, the game will start up and run fine for about five minutes, then the screen starts to bug out and divide itself, and then it crashes. I've been trying to fix this problem for days, and I've emailed you guys about it twice and never got a reply. I NEED HELP.

    ALWAYS post your log after a crash. Can't help you otherwise.

    So what, now you guys are just gonna leave me with a broken game?

    Did you post your log? I don't see it, so how do you expect help?

    It is best not to get an attitude with people offering up help for free. I am here of my own accord, willing to help others where I am able.
