I purchased this game on Steam with the previous 2. I finished Hacker Evolution and it's built in mod. Then I beat Untold and got tired of trying to beat the mod.
Now I am trying to play Duality and the game does not start. I have tried many things. This seems to be a bug related to others I have encounter with other indie games like Gemini Rue.

In the other games it stemmed from a problem with trying to use a midi output despite not needing one. My computer does not have midi support and causes the app to crash. This was easily solved in Gemini Rue by disabling midi output in the configuration options. I have tried using different versions of sdl_mixer.dll and sdl.dll with no success. I have also tried renaming the folders with sounds with no success. The logs generated are always the same. At the bottom it states the sound system initialized successfully and that is where it ends.
I am using the latest sound drivers for my computer.
EDIT: Are there any startup switches which will allow me to start the game with sound disabled until a fix can be distributed?
