Game gives black screen on start-up and then crashes

Post by Sarkara » Thu Aug 06, 2015 2:22 am

Hey guys I just installed Reus and when ever i start up the game i just get a black loading screen which then just shuts off and the game never starts after. But an error report is created and it displays this:

Version: 1.3.1.1
Thread: Main

SpaceTech.Audio.AudioException: An FMOD error occured (ERR_INVALID_PARAM): An invalid parameter was passed to this function.
at SpaceTech.Audio.AudioManager..ctor(String audioPath)
at Reus.Application.Initialize()
at Microsoft.Xna.Framework.Game.RunGame(Boolean useBlockingRun)
at Reus.Program.ActualMain()
at Reus.Program.Main(String[] args)

0x0000 SpaceTech.Audio.dll->SpaceTech.Audio.AudioManager..ctor
0x010d Reus.exe->Reus.Application.Initialize
0x0039 Microsoft.Xna.Framework.Game.dll->Microsoft.Xna.Framework.Game.RunGame
0x0006 Reus.exe->Reus.Program.ActualMain
0x003c Reus.exe->Reus.Program.Ma

Is there a fix to this problem or will I not be able to play the game? Any suggestions?

Hello,

The game can't seem to access your sound card. It is enabled/activated and do you have the correct playback device set in your sound options?

Yeah I got the game to work, but I have a sound card i just didn't have any speakers plugged in though. Though I find that odd that game will not work at all if you don't have anything plugged into the sound jack. All of my other games work perfectly find without any speakers. So shouldn't this be considered a game breaking bug? Since it makes the game unplayable at all unless you absolutely have something plugged into your sound jack
