View Full Version : Hanger module: Crash on loading?

G'day all,

Yesterday I downloaded the hanger module and unfortunately I'm having issues getting it to work.

I start up the launcher and log in, then clich on Launch. a new window pops up with a splash screen followed by loading screen. It flashes "loading" for about 30 seconds and then the loading screen encounters an error and disappears. The launcher screen is still operating.

What I have tried already:
- Tried to find a similar bug report on the RSI site. Most were from September and did not contain a viable fix
- Re download and re-install
- Run launcher as administrator
- Run StarCitizen.exe directly as administrator (with the launcher already logged in and running)
- Installed latest NVidia drivers.
- Tried uninstalling the Visual C++ runtime and reinstalled the recommended version (I had a newer version - hope I haven't broken anything????)
- Tried without anti-virus and with an open firewall.

I was wondering if anyone has had or has heard about a similar problem and/or has heard about a fix?

Cheers and thanks in advance!

Hmmmm! I went through and found multiple instances of the Visual C++ 2010 runtime and deleted all except one. I ran the loader and I got to go into the hanger once. Then I exited and couldn't get back in!

I've gone through and deleted all instances of the 2010 runtime and am doing another install of the version distributed with Star Citizen. Guess I'll see if it has any effect!

The hanger was very cool!

When I tried again to day I noticed that the game.txt file (located in E:\Users\Ian\Documents\StarCitizen\CitizenClient\g ame.txt ) had been updated/rewritten and I found the following messages at the end of the file

I would really appreciate it if someone with the game could check out their game.txt file and see if it has similar entries at the end.

I've posted this at the RSI forum as well to see if this is part of the issue.

Thanks for posting your game.txt Freya!

Finally got it working this morning. Not a 100% sure what I did different, but just before it started to work I went to the NVidia control panel and reset the global defaults. Then when I tried to run it, I got a message saying it had a "connection error" and it died. Then when I ran it again it worked. I've been in and out half a dozen times so far so hopefully the gremlins have disappeared!

Cheers!
