Default Emergence hangs at splash screen

Emergence loads, then hangs at the last splash screen and will not continue loading. Hardware is well above requirements, and I have deleted the software and reloaded about 6 times now.

Has anyone else seen this, and is there a resolution ?

Do you have ZoneAlarm or AVG Firewall?

Have you added SinEpisodes.exe to the exception list?

Do you have Norton GoBack?

Michael,

Thanks for the fast response.

Not using GoBack or AVG firewall but I am using AVG Anti-virus if that matters. No alerts from AVG at all.

I do have ZA and just added sinepisodes.exe to the permitted list - I had no idea it needed to talk to anything, and ZA never popped an alert, so...

Anyway, I am again downloading Emergence from Steam now and will post results.

Thanks again,

Michael

I re-downloaded Emergence from Steam, and it appears that ZA was in fact the problem - !

What is disturbing about this is that ZA apparently cannot display a query screen while Emergence is running - so the problem was not obvious to me initially.

Many thanks for the prompt help!

Michael

That might be a Direct3D/OpenGL issue, tough an ALT+TAB may reveal it sometimes (or at least, it does on my end) . . .

Unfortunately, I got a total hang necessitating a cold boot - via the reset switch, which as you know is a very poor idea. With ZA configured properly, everything is now fine. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
