Omega Strikers Infinite Loading Screen Issue: Is there any fix yet
Omega Strikers gains its hype for the gameplay and the nostalgic retro-arcade style, however, few players are facing a persistent issue. This issue freezes the players on the main screen, forcing them to close the game. The infinite loading screen issue has been addressed on multiple platforms like Steam and Discord gaining the developers’ attention. As soon as the developers acknowledged the bug, they were quick to come up with a solution.
Fix Date/Time (for Nintendo Switch & PC)
Odyssey Interactive mentioned on their official website that this issue can be due to incorrect date/time and game settings. This causes the game to be stuck in an infinite loop, especially while launching. They addressed this bug on their ‘player support’ page. They suggested players head to their Nintendo Switch consoles, selecting System > System Settings > Date and Time and turning on the ‘synchronize the clock via internet’ setting. If you are facing the same issue on PC as well, make sure that the system time and date are configured correctly.
Change Server region
If you are facing the infinite loading screen after finding an online match, restart the game, and then change the server region. Now, try queuing and check if the issue persists. If it does, it might be a specific server region issue that is restricting you from getting past the infinite loading screen.
Verify the Integrity of Game Files
If the suggested workaround didn’t work, you can try verifying the game files integrity via Steam. To do so, launch the Steam client, click on Steam Library > Right-click on Omega Strikers > Select ‘Properties’ from the drop-down menu > Click on Local Files > Select ‘Verify integrity of game files’. This will verify and repair all corrupted files and should help in getting rid of the issue.
You can also try reinstalling the game, and this will automatically delete all the corrupt files. Reinstalling the game would help launch the game with a clean slate, which almost always fixes everything.
This brings us to the end of the guide, we hope to have solved the infinite loading issue for you. If the workarounds mentioned above do not work and the issue persists, you can submit a ticket or raise the issue on their official Discord channel.
