How's it going @striker? Tried any further? I've suggested, to others, trying older versions of the game via the Steam Library, game properties, Betas tab drop-down menu. Just to see if they will start stably(?).
It looks like you're running Windows 7, in which case you could try disabling DEP for TerraTech to see if that solves the problem.
We've also seen reports of compatibility issues with certain anti virus software including Kaspersky, ESET and Avast. If you're using one of these, try disabling the "Heuristics" setting or the 'hardware virtualization' setting (you might need to reboot for changes to take effect).
When i first got the game, i was able to play it for 2 weeks with no issues. After that the game just wont work anymore(im able to launch the game, but when it loads its stuck on a black screen with the cursor on the screen). i've Addressed this issue before in the Bug Category on Forums(on Steam), and i've tryed following some suggested Steps to fix. None of em helped. Till this day im still unable to play the game. Hopefully to whomever reads this can help me sort this issue.
Im Using a MSI GL62M 7Rex
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)i7-7700HQ CPU @ 2.80GHz
System: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor
Running: Windows 10
My System is all Up to date, OS & Drive's.
Anti-Virus & Security settings allowed to let the game run.
i will state again, that when i first got the game i was able to run it for 2 weeks straight.
So Please Address my Issue.
if my very limited understanding of the logs is correct, the apparent cause of the fail to start is in your sound system(also perhaps setting the preffered output as the default output), it might be worth trying a re-install of the sound drivers for the computer as there many references to the FMODUnity which to my limited knowledge is the sound system currently being used for terratech in unity
It could be there is an issue with the AudioSrv service in Windows.
1) Open TaskManager.
2) Go to the Services tab.
3) Find 'AudioSrv' in the list, right click and Restart it.
Then restart the game and see if that helped.
If that didn't help, try
1) Open current sound playback device properties.
(Type 'Sound' in windows start menu. Select the device and click Properties.)
2) On the Enhancement tab, see if immediate mode is switched on. If it is, disable it.
Now try running the game again and see if it solved the problem.
Alternatively you can try letting Windows solve it by running "Find and fix audio playback problems" from the start menu.
Yes, that did help. i thought that it was only my OS & Graphics drive up-to-date. but for some odd reason my Realtek Drive(Audio Drive) was not up-to-date. Just updated it an i was able to get back into the game. thank you for the help now i can kill time at work.
(Update): its been been 24hours since i was able to play an im now back to a black screen with no background audio with a cursor on the screen. i've tryed redoing the suggested advice related to the audio fix. but its not working so far. i've checked the logs an nothing seemed to have changed. Also tryed reinstalling an nothing changed so far.
