Battlescape Application Error - can't launch the game due to OpenAL missing

Hello there,

When i try to launch with ‘Play’ i get an error pop up. ‘The application was unable to start correctly (0x000007b). Click ok to close the application.’. There is no log file in documents/i-novae launcher.

I have uninstalled - reinstalled several times now. Same outcome. Any idea how to move on?

Much appreciated.

We removed the dependency on OpenAL ( audio lib ) recently, but iirc it’s not been patched yet ( we’ll include it in next week’s patch ).

There’s a new experimental .exe in this thread: Server crash + freeze hotfix + client investigations which should have it removed, you can either give it a try, either install OpenAL on your system yourself ( it’s a lightweight download: ).

Let me know if that helped.
