    I know that there is a big code rewriting party goin' on and this problem might not persist in 0.2.0, but I really want to play this game!

    It crashes before I even get to the main menu, this is as far as the cmd window gets:

    I thought it might be a problem with the extra threading in 0.1.6, but then i remembered that I have four cores with dual threading. Also 0.1.5 doesn't work either, it crashes at the same spot.

    Hey Slad, could you give me a run down of your GPU and CPU specs? I want to be sure it isn't an OpenGL incompatibility.

    CPU is Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2630QM CPU @ 2.00GHz

    GPU is NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M with 1GB/2GB DDR3 VRAM

    Make sure you are running the game via the dedicated card? (Do this via the NVidia Control Panel). The CPU you have has an integrated GPU that supports OpenGL 3.0. SoA requires a slightly newer OpenGL version right now.

    YES Thank you so much!

    Now it makes me wonder if any of my other games are defaulting to the integrated card and could be better . . .

    NVidia defaults well known games to its card if the game requires it. Though if you play Indie games, it is entirely possible! :)

    I also have this issue on my laptop. This is definitely the solution.
