Startup issues

HI all

New here and hope that you could all help with my problem.

I run the game in 1920 * 1080, FXAA and borderless window. WIndows 10 Professional 64bit, 8GB RAM and AMD Phenom x4.

When starting the game it stops for a LONG time after:-
Texture ./assets/shaders/cubemap/EngineRoom/Specmap/Outputcube.dds mips: 7

Following this I get:-
Unable to find heading: lblAspirationOptions

And then it will generally continue to load after another brief spell.

Here is the list of what I have tried.......
    Various different options of resolution/FXAA/mods on/off
    Verification of files
    Uninstall and reinstallation of the game - done this several times, occasionally it helps and the game starts quickly.
    Final step was the uninstall of Steam. Reinstall Steam. Reinstall Automation.

The final step resolved an issue I had with mods not loading. The game started very quickly and I thought it was all good.

When I next opened the game it, once again, took a long time (7 minutes) to load up. :evil:

On a positive note, when it does eventually start up, it works flawlessly! :D

Also loving the game too. :D :D

Thanks in anticipation.

Re: Startup issues

Can you right click on Automation in Steam -> Properties -> Select Open Beta.

That should give me a more detailed log as to exactly when this loading freeze is happening. So if you can post the GameLog.txt made in Documents\My Games\Automation that would be great, cheers.

Re: Startup issues

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

Did what you suggested but when I ran it the game went straight in! Closed it down and restarted it several times with the same effect. Turned off -openbeta and it still went straight in. 8-)

Don't know if the openbeta setting tweaked the universe into alignment, and sorted it out, but everything seems to be OK at the moment. :lol:

I'll be spending a lot of time over the weekend so will let you know how I get on.

Keep up the good work! :)

Re: Startup issues

Hi again

When I start up my computer and start the game it still takes a while to load. But once it's been used then it starts up quickly the next time, as long as my computer hasn't been rebooted.

I've attached the log from a first time start in case you can see anything. I usually check email before starting any other applications so I'm not an impatient impatient kind of guy. :)
