Issues on Startup.
I just installed and started the first game, but whenever I launch it, I end up on a mostly black screen, with "gameint(7- (insert time I launched the game here.))" I waited several minutes, and nothing happened, pressed Enter, Spacebar, both shifts and a number of other keys, and got no response. Even Alt-F4 didn't close out of it. Is there something wrong here, or am I just impatient?

No, that shouldn't be taking long.... Please trying verifying your Steam cache for that game, and let me know if that doesn't help.

Well, I verified the Steam cache, and it did say that one file was missing and was reaquired. However, the game still stops at the same place.

Hmmm, would you mind trying an uninstall then reinstalling it?
The Professional Amateur Jul 22, 2013 @ 11:00am 
I've finished un and re-installing it, and even sent any leftover data from the first install to the recycle bin before the re-install. Sadly, it seems to have the same problem.

Sorry for the long delay, but, I have two questions for you:

1) Is this AVWW1 or AVWW2 (it looks like the first one by the forum title, but I don't want to assume) ?

2) Are you able to test this out on any other machine for diagnostic comparison? If so, does the problem exist there too?

It's the first. I don't have another com♥♥♥♥r for comparison right now, but I should by the end of the week. I'll come back after trying it there.

If I delete the steam_api.dll I can start the game up, of course none of the achievements then register in Steam though :(

Anyone else having issues running this in Steam? (just crashes on start up)

Maybe a bit of an odd question, but, are you using the beta version of Steam right now? That seems to be killing one of our other games, so that might be the cause here too.

I have the same problem and I can confirm it's caused by the Steam beta. I'm having startup issues with other games well, for example Jet Set Radio, but launching the executables directly from outside Steam fixes the problem for all affected games. So does opting out of the beta. Thankfully all achievements have been awarded retroactively in AVWW!
Also thank you devs for keeping an eye on the forums and trying to help out.

Thank you for that confirmaion. We've already e-mailed Valve regarding this issue. In the mean time, opting out of the beta does fix this. I'll keep you updated.

This should hopefully be fixed by tomorrow.
