  • public beta participants: download the latest version via the web and unzip on top of your current install -- or, if using the launcher, make sure you're using the latest version of the launcher (18.7.0 or later) and reinstall the game.  Again, the beta is available here.
  • If you're having problems loading the game or are otherwise unable to get to the main menu, please try the following:

If you used the client to extract the game, hit Win+R (to open the "Run" box) and then paste the following into that box:

%appdata%\itch\apps\Aven Colony Beta\Engine\Extras\Redist\en-us\

If you downloaded it as a ZIP, navigate into the directory you extracted it, and then go into Engine\Extras\Redist\en-us .

In that folder you should see an executable named UE4PrereqSetup_x64. If you run that, that will install everything that the game needs - and you should then be able to run the game without issues!

  • If that doesn't work, user satoru has also posted a very helpful master fixes thread in our forums.
  • Steam closed beta participants (limited to media, streamers, YouTubers, and early beta participants from the closed beta prior to September): just exit Steam and restart to get the latest. Please keep an eye out for further updates; we're laser focused on bug fixes and have several more coming down the pipe in the very near future.

stupid question, if you guys have steam version out there, why release it on itcho and not have it be available as invite only as you have setup for the current streamers? I know why you guys are not going the EA route.

I unzipped the latest update over the original installation, ran that UE4PrereqSetup_x64. But the game still will not start up. I get an error about GearVR plugin not found. Why. I don't use GearVR nor ever have.
