    Hey there,
    I have PA for a long time. Played some with my friend a while back.
    But now when i tried to start a game its building the plannets and then my PC is completly freezing!
    I looked at alle the steam forums for a possible solution but nothing seems to help. Also Switched of my Antivirus (eset Not compatible????) of thats the problem but nothing helps.

    A fix for my problem please? It's really frustrating that is has been working but not anymore :(

    Lots of corrupt or missing files in your logs:

    Code:
    ERROR Error opening struct UnitSpec spec

    Verifed the game, tried to start it again.
    When the game starts to load the map i now get a black screen instead of my PC completly freezing.
    But pa.exe stopped working

    • settings > server > local server > off

    Do you have any special characters in your steam name?

    Also make sure you are testing AI skirmish with one of the default systems.

    Did you also try the clean boot option at the end of that list that mikeyh linked to?

    By the way, does it make a difference if you play full screen or windowed? You can switch between them by pressing <Alt>+<Enter>, I think. Does it matter on which monitor the game is running? Does it still happen if you disconnect one of the monitors?
