Closed CURRENT WORK-AROUNDS (Try these if you're having issues!)

  1. Gonna start posting temporary work-arounds for some currently known bugs/errors. These aren't guaranteed to work for you, but they're certainly worth a shot if you're having trouble running the game. :)

    Low FPS on NVIDIA cards
    If you're having low fps on Nvidia cards, try setting "multicore optimization" to no/off in the Nvidia control panel.

    Rendering/memory issues
    Some rendering/memory issues may be solved by replacing your "starbound.exe" file with "starbound_opengl.exe".
    To do this, you'll need to copy and paste the original "starbound.exe" into another folder to back it up, then rename "starbound_opengl.exe" to "starbound.exe" and try running the game.

    Game hanging on logo screen
    We're working on this, but some players are finding that if they just wait it out, they are able eventually to pass the loading screen and get into the game. Try it out!

    NVIDIA card here game have some pretty slow FPS, I do not see "multicore opimization"
    I see
    Threaded optimization
    This is currently set to Auto should turn this on or off or do you mean I should toggle it ?

    Hmmm. No success for me on the startup crash fix. Seems to coincide with the steam-overlay popup, if that's new information at all!

    I'm sad to say none of these helped me. I am still stuck at the chucklefish screen.

    It started again directly after my post about it working. Not sure what the problem is but still trying to find a work around.

    Seems like windows Xp users are completely unable to launch the game so far.

    By default, you'll find it in: Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Starbound
    The main .exe files are in that directory, but you might also try running the launcher.
    For the record, this hasn't yet worked for me either, but it's worth a shot!

    The rendering/Memory issue work around is causing access violation errors for me. I have gone back to the orginal exe's. Mollygos is there any work arounds for the access violation errors. Ive seen people in the forum having problems with it aswell, i dont think these guys have even done the renaming.
