News Comments > No Man's Sky Released
7. Re: No Man's Sky Released Aug 12, 2016, 19:47 Mr. Tact
 
Purchased on a whim after talking with a friend who was really hyped about it. Can't get it to launch. To heck with it, I requested a refund on Steam. Maybe I'll try it later, after it's been patched a few times and the price has gone down.

I found a fix for the OpenGL issue.
Go to your Steamapps/common/No Man's Sky/Binaries/SETTINGS/TKGRAPHICSSETTINGS
From there you can either set "Fullscreen" to "false" or more appropriately, just put your proper resolution in and it should launch.
Yeah, read this somewhere else too. Didn't fix it for me.

Let the Florps begin!
Not here, got a "can't initialize an OpenGL window" error -- guess I'll wait for the first fix patch.

Sandbox implies a building aspect.

Last I checked GTA was a flagship sandbox game. You ever built anything in there?
I'd disagree, I'd say GTA was simply open world, not sandbox. Also as I said before, it is a matter of semantics/definition. But I think unless there is more crafting/building in this game than I have seen in the videos I've watched -- it is not "like Minecraft" or what I would call a sandbox game.

Where is the "sandbox" portion of this game?

You mean, being free to do what you want to do in a universe-sized environment isn`t sandboxy enough?

Lol. It doesn`t matter anyway, the devs can break it down for the hundreth time, yet some folks will still see what they want to see.
Repeating, yes, it is an open world. That is different from being sandbox. Sandbox implies a building aspect.

So what, exactly, is the point of a shared universe?
It does seem counter-productive doesn't it...

It'll have as much game to it as Minecraft does. If that appeals to you, then this may be the game for you.
This will only be true if NMS has significant crafting/building components, which was kind of my earlier point. Where is the "sandbox" portion of this game? Upgrading your suit, gun, and ship are the only things I have seen. Is there more? If not, it isn't "like Minecraft".

Yes, I agree this is an "open world" -- "sandbox" in my mind indicates the ability to build... semantics I guess. Whatever, I won't belabor it.

Honestly, what is it about British devs incorporating poop as gameplay?
It is not just a British thing. There are several (many?) poop related quests in WoW.

Okay, I am confused. I thought this was a patch. Is that wrong? Because if it is a patch, what you are saying makes no sense. If it just a new "Anniversary" release which people might ignore, then what you are saying is reasonable.

Nin, I don't have some great conspiracy theory. The release broke Classic Shell. Now perhaps that is because the programmers of Classic Shell had not followed Microsoft's application development rules correctly. But it doesn't change the fact the release cause it to stop working until patched.

People seem oblivious that it's a totally clean install of windows, to the point that c:\windows is renamed to windows.old. To expect every single thing to migrate flawlessly is ignorant, to put it mildly...
Nin, the re-installation of removed software is not a failure of software migration. I don't understand why you are fighting so hard to defend MS here.
