Music Error?
Recently when I start the game I get the error "
action number 1
of Create Event
for object objDevolver:

Error defining an external function.

I haven't done anything to mod the game, but when I finally click through that alert I can get in game but the music is muted. I still hear other stuff, but the music which drives this game's pacing is missing. Any help getting it back would be greatly appreciated.

I got that message, and had a musicless start. I restarted the game, but then only got a black screen. After a couple of black screens and restarts I managed to get the game going, and then after 1/2 hour of play it crashed to desktop. I've been playing the game on and off for the past few weeks and this is new; must be a glitchy update. Please fix soon!
using the beta fixes the music error for most people. I've got the opposite problem though. My music was just fine before I started using the beta, but after I switched to the beta to fix achievement issues, now I'm getting no music -or- sound (I'm also not getting an actual error message)

What beta? There is no beta right now.
There isn't a beta unless you enter the beta password. When you get to the beta tab, enter hlm (That's aitch-el-em, not aitch-eye-em) and it'll open you up to the beta which should solve the problem.

The beta is so much nicer

Right-click on the game in Library -> Properties -> Betas, code is "hlm".

Should solve the problem.

There should be a "vcredist_x86.exe" in the "Steam/steamapps/common/hotline_miami/redist".

But anyway, as I said, I recommend you switch over to the beta version of the game (right-click on the game in Library -> Properties -> Betas, code is "hlm"), not only because it will fix this problem (and other bugs), but also because it adds features such as the possibility to change language, resolution, leaderboards...

EDIT: Oh you deleted your message. This still stands however :p
