Hi everyone,

Since the update recently it seems there's quite a few people dealing with some issues. I'd like to apologize for any inconvenience; please sit tight while we work these things out over the coming few days hopefully.

Until we get things worked out; here's a few things you can try that may improve the situation:

Game not starting at all
  • Manually install OpenAL through the _CommonRedist/OpenAL/ folder; it seems somehow this isn't being automatically configured for everyone.
  • Disable MSI Afterburner if you have it installed.
  • Disable Steam Overlay
  • Update your video card drivers (particularly if you have an intel chip).

If your game still is not starting at all after these steps it'd be very helpful if you could send some system information along with the 'debug.log' file and the contents of your 'savegames' directory over to me at frans.kasper [at]

No sound or music playing
  • As above: manually install OpenAL through the _CommonRedist/OpenAL/ folder; it seems somehow this isn't being automatically configured for everyone.
  • When you have sound but no music - delete all files except Progress.gun and Settings.gun from your savegames folder and restart the game.

Malformed menu (buttons/text appear only in bottom right corner)
  • Delete latest.gun from your savegames folder and 'resolution.txt' from the 'settings' folder.

If all else fails, you can try opting into the 'oldversion' beta branch. You can do this by right clicking 'Gunpoint' in your steam library and navigating to 'Properties'. From there select 'betas' and pick 'oldversion' from the dropdown menu. You won't have workshop support but it may increase the chances of the game working for you. If this does work, please check back here regularly for updates on the normal build which you can opt in for again by repeating the same steps only selecting 'default' as the beta branch.

Thank you all so much for your patience and for patrolling the forums and pointing people in the right direction for possible fixes, it's much appreciated!

Update July 2nd
Hi again, we've just pushed out another update with a number of crash fixes, please let us know if it has resolved anything for you!

Thanks for the update!
Although I have installed it after playing the old version, there are still graphical issues and missing letters from dialogues.

Geforce GT620 - driver version 335.23

After getting the cat burglar achievement the screen turns dark blue and I can't see any of the game, but the music still plays and it looks like I can still click on things as if the game were still running. EDIT: It actually happens when I get any achievement. I just updated my graphics card to the latest driver (337.88) and installed OpenAL manually.

System specs:
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Intel Core i7-3630 QM CPU @ 2.40 Ghz
RealTek High Definition Audio Driver
GeForce GTX 680M Driver 335.23

Thank you for being so responsive. Love the game!

MSI Afterburner seems to be the cause of the crashing on startup for me. If it shut it down first, I can play the game. There is a crash on exit though too.

long shot can't be used outside the laboratory and in the laboratory you can only wire them once, not all of them once though, but only ONE OF THEM ONCE.

I can't seem to run the game on my system, even though (to the best of my knowledge), my system meets the minimum requirements. When I click play in Steam, the game window opens up to the Gunpoint title slide (see screenshot on my profile page, it's the only one I've uploaded), and then the game crashes: "Gunpoint.exe has stopped working. Windows is searching for a solution to the problem." The game is only open for about 30 seconds, if that.

I have the latest driver for my gpu, and I have installed OpenAL manually.

System Specs:
HP dv6700-series laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo T5750 running at 2.0 GHz
Audio: Realtek High Definition Audio (driver
Graphics: Intel GM965 Express chipset (integrated graphics)

I've got a lot of missing graphics. First time I loaded the game, even the button for 'try it' for selecting resolution was blank and I didn't realise until I randomly clicked stuff how to select resolution. When in game random texts are showing as blank boxes. At first I could see light switches and cameras and such, but then I verified game data just in case and since then no longer can. And I am still seeing the blank text boxes randomly within the first conversation.

System is a laptop, Acer Aspire 4810TZG
Windows 7 Home Premium, 64bit
Intel Pentium SU4100, 1.3GHz
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330

My dialogues get bugged. I get weird symbols on them. If i press Esc twice (pause and get back to the game) stuff changes until the full dialogue comes out. Sometimes it doesn't work though. I hope this gets fixed really soon ._. I just got this game and i really wanna play <3
