Awesomenauts Controller Errors, Connection Fixes, Launch Problems and Crashes

It may be hard to believe that a 2D MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) game-like Awesomenauts can get so much appreciation but yes, Romino Games has done a great job with this action oriented 2D platform.

After its console debut, it has been released on PC, which means some of you out there may face some problems while running it or may even not be able to start the game. If that’s the case, you can refer to the following troubleshooting guide for assistance.

#1 Awesomenauts – The game does not Launch
It can be caused by several issues, so you might want to try the following workarounds and see what fixes it for you.

  • Verify the integrity of Steam Cache
  • Try to run the game at different resolutions.
  • Try running the game in the windowed mode.
  • Try turning off the Nividia Surround (the multimonitor system).
  • Make sure that you are running latest drivers for your graphics and sound cards.

#2 Awesomenauts Connection Problem – How to configure
Since Awesomenauts is a peer-to-peer based game, a stable connection with other players is quite important for a smooth online experience. You can configure your connection in two ways:

  • Turn on UPnP on your router
  • Open UDP ports 3478 and 4379

This will let you have a better online experience.

#3 Game Crashes on Character Selection Screen
It’s a known bug by Developer support team and if you are a victim, you may want to try out the following workaround:

When you are in character selection screen, instead of selecting a character manually, go for auto-select. I know; it isn’t a logical solution, but it can work out for you.

#4 Awesomenauts – The game gets stuck on the start-up
If you are meeting the system requirements of the game, then the issue is most probably related to your drivers. Even if your OS is saying that the drivers are up-to-date, it doesn’t really mean that you have them updated. Uninstalling the old drivers and installing fresh updated drivers can save you from the plethora of troubles.

#5 Multiple Controllers don’t work?
The bug for the wireless controllers is known and will be fixed soon enough. Wired controllers should work fine.

#6 Contact Support as Your Final Resort
Awesomenaut’s support team has been quite active in listening to various issues faced by the users. So, if nothing is going your way, you can contact them directly and send them your log file.

If you come across any other issues, let us know and we will try to help you out.

Don't know why exactly, but Ali studied both Biotch and Computer Science. Out of curiosity he says. Doesn't play many competitive games however, when it comes to FIFA, it's a whole different story.
