Post Purchased SO7 on Steam and it will not load
No matter what I try, I cannot play my freshly purchased Starters Orders 7 on Steam. Tried all possible solutions suggested on forums and help guides, yet nothing at all. Loads a black screen up for 2 seconds, then closes.

Oh well, back to Starters Order 6 then. And a nice refund for a game that doesn't load. Shame as I was looking forward to the new breeding options.

* edit: can't even play Starters Orders 6 anymore, because the link that I was emailed at time of purchase no longer works. Now that I have a new computer, I cannot install this game on my new computer.

Superb work Strategic Designs...just superb!

Can't believe you've had no response to this. If you mail him he'll send you a link that does work for so6, did the same thing for me when I realized so7 was the biggest pile of sh*t ever created. Nobody seems to care anymore, so7 truly did sink the ship. This forum used to be really good.

Just a long shot jonnycosmic. Have you tried disabling sound on your laptop (laptop sound as opposed to game sound) ? I could not get SO7 to launch on Steam and that worked for me.

Hope you get sorted.

I’d heard that the commentary was unbearable, so disabling the sound on laptop was the first thing I did.

Literally no idea why it won’t work for me.

Oh well, worth a try suggesting it. Long as you have disabled sound entirely on your machine (not just turned down) not sure what else to say.

Before finding that solution, I did launch it from the game file rather than directly from steam. From memory it worked, though some times needed a few attempts.

I wonder if Mark is even alive?

I'll ask even though you said you tried everything - Maybe your anti-virus is blocking the game? Check your AV.

AGV prevented my game running. Got rid of AVG and all was good
