IoT freezing on startup

Looking for a bit of help here. IoT experimental (0.1.16) freezes my laptop when starting. I get the little IoT splash screen then the screen goes black, the disk carries on spinning for a minute or so, no music, no cursor just a black screen, and that’s as far as I can get. Worked fine last week. Have uninstalled and re-installed without any luck. Anyone have any words of wisdom??? Ta.

Hi @Bongo13 and welcome to the forums! It seems you’ve been able to run the game prior to this. To clarify it’s just this one patch that you can’t run?


thanks for the reply. I thought it might be something to do with 0.1.16 so I installed the “official” branch which 0.1.14 and I get the same outcome.

I’ve not changed anything on my system in ages so not sure where to go next.



I’ve found the problem and we’re all good again. Seems Comodo’s free antivirus was the problem. Game runs fine now it’s switched off.

Apologies for wasting your time.
