The game launches into an empty main menu scene with floating clouds

The root cause of this issue has been resolved as of Airport CEO Alpha 31, but for older legacy versions of Airport CEO it can still occur if the game is incorrectly exited, generating a corrupt GameSetting.json file (empty). Perform the following steps to resolve this issue:

1. Locate a file named "GameSetting.json" in your computer's Airport CEO folder

Reference the correct folder path below depending on your computer's operating system:

Windows: C:\Users\YOUR COMPUTER USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Apoapsis Studios\Airport CEO\GameSetting.json
macOS: /Users/YOUR COMPUTER USER NAME/Library/Application Support/Apoapsis Studios/Airport CEO/GameSetting.json

Note that the "YOUR COMPUTER NAME" text must be replaced with your computer's user name

2. Delete "GameSetting.json"
3. Launch the game

Notice: Deleting "GameSetting.json" will reset your saved game settings, these can however be reassigned once you've launched the game after deleting the file!
