HELP - Game Crushes, though It worked perfectly before!!!
« on: April 11, 2010, 04:44:29 pm »

Hello People!

I am new here. I have been playing star control for over 10 years. I dowloaded the urquanmasters yesterday. Very nice, I have to say.
I played for about 2 hours and I witnessed no problems.
...but then I started the game today morning and it crushed as it opened. I uninstalled it twice and installed it again and the same problem was present.
I have windows 7. Before closing the game yesterday I changed some ooptions within the game to maximum values.
It crushes when I open the program and i get the same window. It reads as
follows:



The urqun masters encountered a fatal error.
Part of the lof follows:

The ur quan mastres v0.6.2 (compiled jan 15 2007 13:56:34)
This software comes with absolutely no warrenty;
for details see the included 'copying' file.

Netplay version 0.3. Requiring remote UQM version 0.5.4
Couldn't initialize OpenAl: 40961
Sound driver initialization failed
This may happen when a soundcard is not present or not available.
Notive: Try running UQM with '--sound=none' option.


What Can I Do? (Even reintalling does not work... yesterday it worked perfectly)

This sounds like OpenAL is acting up again; disable it.

THX

I did it my self now Tongue
This post maid me rethink what I did.

I deleted the log (cfg file) with the changed options. It was hidden in one of my user folders which is why uninstalling did not erase it. Now it works fine Smiley
If someone encounters one of these problems, he will know what to do Smiley)

Now I am gonig to look for the Androsynth and the Tallo again.
