Whenever I try to start the game nothing happens, not even an error.

The only thing that does happen is the steam launch preparing, but after that not even a window tries to appear.
Trying to open the .exe file directly results in nothing at all.

I also can't find the console.log file where the spazgame.exe is located.

I do still have windows XP but i do not think that is the problem.

Does anyone know what could cause this problem ?

Thank you

Greezer

Sometimes a computer reboot is required. Can you try that and report the results?

A reboot changed nothing.

Ok. That is odd. Steam is preventing the executable from running. This has happened to people in the past but usually sorts itself out randomly as I recall. In the mean time, one of the things it could be is your Virus scanner preventing Spaz from talking to Steam. Could you try turning it off and launching?

turning of my anti-virus also does nothing.
Seems like i'll just have to hold of from playing until I get a new computer after this one dies eventually.

If you have a decent internet connection, I think I have some OnLive monthly passes left that may work?

That's a kind offer, but as a matter of fact I actually found a monthly onlive pass that I forgot I had so that wont be necessary. I guess this could be an opportunity to try out onlive ^^.
Thank you for reminding me that i had this !

Happy to help. If you try SPAZ again in a week or so on your PC it may just work as well. That has happened before. Good luck with OnLive too :)
