My Total Miner Won't Start
« on: July 25, 2018, 10:38:06 AM »
When ever I go to run Total Miner from steam, it does not appear anywhere not on screen or at the task bar. It simply says Total Miner - Running, then the words running disappear which then gives me the ability to click play again without the warning message of "it's already running" however the game does not work anymore. Does not appear anywhere. Please help.

Note
This is after I installed and uninstalled the multiplayer mod.
This is also after I installed the beta update for a new menu and uninstalled after.
I have uninstalled the game and re installed it, however the problem persists.
I have gone into the local files of the game and tried running "studioForge.Totalminer.exe" as an administrator but it just says
SteamAPI_Init() failed. Ensure Steam is running.

-pls help

First thing I would suggest is to completely remove all total miner files and restart the computer. Then reinstall the game to see if it works properly without any mods or using the beta edition. Then report here again.

I deleted everything in documents/myGames/TotalMiner, I even deleted the TotalMiner folder itself.
Then I uninstalled the game. Turned off my computer by shutting down it down from the windows option.
Started my computer back on reinstalled total miner however it still does not start when I run Total Miner
and even now when I go to check documents/MyGames the totalMiner folder does not exist.

Sounds like it's being sandboxed or quarantined by your anti virus.

TEMPORARILY disable any protection (anti virus. firewall. defender etc...) and try again.

If that doesn't help then try uninstalling the game, rebooting, and reinstalling it. All with the above disabled.

DO NOT forget to re enable any protection you use once you've finished testing.

I appreciate your response however, upon permanently uninstalling AVG and temporarily disabling windows defender and all other antivirus programs. When starting Total Miner from steam using the play button, it simply goes through the same phases, preparing to launch, running, syncing, then nothing.

Update

I am experiencing a bug where I can no longer play the game.
When hitting the play button within steam on Total Miner it simply says
preparing to launch, running, syncing, then nothing.

Running the exe file of Total Miner yields an error message stating
(SteamAPI_init() failed) and does not start at all.

I've tried:
Disabling and uninstalling all antiviruses
Running as admin
Uninstalling the game and reinstalling the game
Uninstalling the multiplayer mod
Running steam as admin and game
Deleting both the total miner and total miner beta folder in my games
Attempting to run the game as beta client (in admin mode aswell)

As of right now I'm uninstalling steam and all its data to reinstall and attempt to play the game.

-pls help
