Penumbra Overture does not load - steam - Gamemakingdude - 10-31-2011

Hi, i am running Penumbra overture and it worked fine before but i uninstalled it and reinstalled it. Now it shows im in an game then it just closes and i get no window or anything whatsoever.
ok now i get an error when running it directly from the exe


The procedure entry point alcGetString could not be located in the dynamic link library OpenAL32.dll

Make sure Penumbra is updated to v1.1 and that you have the latest OpenAL driver installed:

This also happens with Penumbra Black Plaque

does it still show the same OpenAL error?

Nope fixed the Black plaque but not the Overture. And it still did the same for the overture.
