Try deleting Duffers.ini and DuffersUser.ini and restarting.

I've got pretty much the same problem with different hardware. This is also before and after I tried deleting the .ini s mentioned above

Can you confirm for me that there is the following in your Duffers.ini under the [Engine.Engine] section?

GUIController=DuffersGUI.DGGUIController

Did you have the single player beta before this? Some ppl have had success deleting the old folder and reinstalling Duffers fresh from the multi alpha.

Can you post your [Core.System] section? I'm just trying to see if all the ini settings are correct.

Are you patched to 3204?

Yes, I'm patched to 3204 and play several other mods successfully. BTW I had the same problem with single player and yes, when it came time to install multiplayer I made sure that the single player folder and contents were completely removed first.

Hmmm...

Don't know if it means anything to you but here is the error code I get when trying to start from the included .bat file:

Could not spawn a GUI Controller!

And here is the error code I get when trying to start from the mod menu:

This is strange... your ini looks like it was generated with the old default.ini (singleplayer beta version). Here's what that section should look like:

I copied and pasted your core.system and it works!

Just out of curiosity I deleted everything again and reinstalled from a new installer from fileshack. Worked out of the box that time! How strange.

Anyway, nice work so far! Now to get it running under linux ;)
