KSP Stuck on "Squad/Spaces/mk2InlineInternal/Internal/mk2InlineInternal" at Startup

Question

Hello,

Just bought and installed KSP. Tried to run it for the first time and the game loaded until it reached the file "Squad/Spaces/mk2InlineInternal/Internal/mk2InlineInternal" and then freezes permanently. I checked the game files and had Steam verify them and it turned out that one of the files failed to checkout and would be re-acquired. Ran the verification again and the whole thing passed. Clicked play again and got the same problem, stuck on "Squad/Spaces/mk2InlineInternal/Internal/mk2InlineInternal". I deleted local content and re-installed the game and the problem continues to persist. 

Any thoughts? Anyone got a few tricks up their sleeve I might use to get KSP up and running?
 
Version: 1.1.2
 
Steam, clean install

Here is your problem:

What this scary looking message is basically saying is "I can't read this because something else is trying to".

I know your on Mac, but any anti-virus that might be interfering? Maybe you have other programs open? Otherwise, not sure, I don't use OSX, but something is trying to read that file at the same time as KSP

Possible relevant help thread (check near the bottom) - the person who had this issue said it was a problem with the filesystem they were using on an external drive?:

Thank you severedsolo. I moved my install to a non-exFAT partition and I am now up and running. Thank you all for you help!

Glad I could help, it was a complete shot in the dark to be honest, but I'm glad it worked!

Hi,

 

I have not tried to run KSP on Mac yet, but on Linux, so my question is: are you sure you are running the x64 version of KSP?

I only ever had the loading-bar freeze on me when I ran the x32 version.

Chances are something after that file is making it choke, but without a log, we have no way of knowing what it is.

Ah I see I have left out some expected information. I'll edit the post later today once I get back from work.

I'd also try reinstalling if you haven't already. Its possible the file has corrupted somehow during installation.

Try launching the game in full screen mode. You may need to edit the settings.cfg file and set: "FULLSCREEN = True"

This was causing issues for some folks.

Sounds *exactly* like when I used to get out-of-RAM failures pre-64bit and cramming in too many mods.

Sounds like you are doing this unmodded though, you shouldn't be out of RAM.

You running anything in the background?

Try temporarily removing the part that it is sticking at. If it just sticks at a different part, then it will be even *more* like an old fashioned out-of-RAM thing. Check the RAM utilisation when the loading is stuck as well.

Sorry man, this sort of thing is a pain in the backside.

PS: also, when in doubt, update video drivers. I've had that cause some weird, seemingly-completely-unrelated-to-video issues.

I'll check and see. What what I have found is that Steam automatically launches the x86 (32bit) version. I'll try and force if to lanch the x64 now.

I've tried that a few times so far. No luck yet.

Hmm. No antivirus. Could it be Steam's fault? I'll try and boot the game with nothing else running. Update in a sec.

No luck booting KSP by itself. This weird. Nothing else is running not Steam not anything. 

Same problem in the log file:

No luck with the fullscreen edit.

Yeah after removing the part it just sticks at another part. RAM pressure is about 1/4 of the total KSP is shown to be using only 1.12GB

Hmm, I checked out that link and the problem they were experiencing had to do with their external being formatted to exFAT and exFAT not supporting all "ACL flags like for single user or multiple user access mode". Which is interesting as my KSP, and all my other games, is installed on an external formatted to exFAT. I'll see if I can make a new partition that supports ACL flags and post my findings.

@Voxmortalis

I am having the same issue that you were having, but I am having trouble finding out how to make a partition on my external drive to support the ACL flags. If you could point me in the right direction I would be extremely grateful.
