    It's also happening to me. I think the problem is the Visual C++. Try uninstalling it then reinstalling it from VCRedist within the files.

    I had the same Issue. Try uninstalling the game, then deleting the Starbound Folder in your steamapps/common directory and reinstalling it after. This fixed the Issue for me. Please report back if this fixes your issues too!

    I fixed it by going into the steam files and deleting the entire \Starbound folder, then reinstalling the entire game
    I also used the executable inside the game files instead of using the actual steam launcher, I dont know if this will help but I hope it does !! :D

    I was having the same problem. As others suggested, I uninstalled the game and reinstalled it. I forgot to delete the Starbound folder and ran into the same problem. I uninstalled again, this time remembering to delete the Starbound folder before reinstalling. Now it's running just fine. Thanks for putting your suggestions out there. :)

    Are there any other files anywhere else i should delete? Because it didn't work. I also disabled my antivirus for the duration of the install.
    PS:when i run starbound.exe from directory i get error missing api-ms-win-crt-runtime
    i talked about this in first post

    For the api-ms-win-crt-runtime error: reinstall the VCRedist (Visual c++ redistributable) manually located here: [path to your steam]\SteamApps\common\Starbound\_CommonRedist\vcredist\2015
    Install both: x86 and x64. Also make sure that no mods are currently installed (or at least they should be up to date since the mod loading was changed during development). Not all mods are currently 1.0 ready. And don't try to load any outdated saves into the game. It could result into a startup crash also.

    If steam says you're playng starbound and then stops, starbound should at least created a logfile in its storage folder ( [path to your steam]\SteamApps\common\Starbound\storage). When the problem still persists after above steps please attach your starbound.log so we can track down the issues together :)

    It is the same issue we had a couple of patches ago a LOT of people had issues with it since you need to have an up to date windows for it in order to instal visual c++ 2015. Because the team noticed a lot of people had issues with it they removed the need to have visual c++ 2015 which solved it for many, but it seems they did it again

    The content of the "long window" would be interesting.
    As for the rest i'm searching for a solution.

    Have any of you made sure your assets folder ONLY includes the user folder and packed.pak ?
