Get a error message at startup:
Starsector 0.8.la-RC8

Error in sound initialization proceeding with sound disabled

org.lwjgl.openal.AL10.nalDistanceModel(i)V

Once I hit ok another error message appears

Starsector 0.8.la-RC8

Fatal: org.lwjgl.openal.AL10.nalDistanceModel(i)V
Check Starsector log for more info.

ok on this ends the application.
I do not see a starsector log anywhere and it will startup if I disable sound on the load menu. even on successful startup I do not see a log.

Note this is Windows 10 not Linux
Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
Version: 10.0.16299 build 16299

I did try updating openal with no success same error.

Hi - sorry about the trouble!

Per this thread:
http://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=12734.0

If updating OpenAL didn't help, then running the game as administrator might - at least, it appears to have resolved this issue for several people.

Relevant info:

Running the game with the sounds enabled, but with no device to play it on (i.e. you have no connected speakers, headphones or whatnot) will crash the game on startup 100% of the time.
Make sure you have your headphones, speakers, or whatever connected before you start the game with sound enabled. Otherwise, tick that sound option to off.
