Starbound freezes upon launching (note i'm not really tech savy)

    After a year or so of not playing the game I decided to come back and reinstall it, but upon launching the game I reached the Chucklefish logo then the game froze and asked me to either close or wait for a response. Uninstalling and re-installing did nothing and I don't really have any idea on what to do, but I really feel like playing the game. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi ! I’ve got the exact same problem, the game crashes when I launch it. I noticed it happened each ime I created a new save file. I have no error message, only a message from windows stating that the game is not responding. I uninstalled and re-installed it and it did nothing. Anyone can help me please ? :(

    we'll need a log from both of you. it can be found in the storage folder where you installed starbound. depending on your computer's settings, its either named "starbound" or "starbound.log"

    Disabled discord overlay and game actually worked, kinda face palming because something like that was causing it. Endless thanks to Nexus for the help, much love. <3
