A few questions then:
1. Where did you download it from/what version
2. What happens when you try to launch it
3. Is anything recorded in the log file (logs/Terasology.log)
4. What version of Java do you have installed?
Cervator - There is something wrong with the download links off of Jenkins, the download generally aborts early for me leaving me with a partial download.
no luck, i disabled the nvidia audio, and still the same problem. I have the latest drivers for my onboard soundmax digital audio. I guess i gotta buy a new soundcard and hope that will fix the problem
OryHara - are you sure the nvidia audio was the active choice for your first test? If your system somehow picked the Soundmax card the first time then disabling nvidia the second time wouldn't do anything, and could possibly match that user's situation. Try with Soundmax disabled and nvidia enabled?
If you're up for it there are some other potential workarounds / tests in that thread and the other Google hits that might yield a solution. Although I'm not sure if Terasology would pay attention to a DLL in system32 - Immortius - do you think there's an easy way for a user to test differing versions of OpenAL with the current native loading setup? Last time around we switched from caring about System32 to forcing the use of bundled DLLs, so not sure if that makes testing harder.
I'll check that thread out, and hopefully it will work with my pc
it uses this driver for my soundmax:

yea, disabling the nvidia audio was my first try, then i re enabled nvidia and disabled soundmax, and had no audio at all, and both times the game wouldnt start. pc was rebooted for both tests
I'll check out the links you gave me and try the fixes in them, thanks
*update* the openal32 dll link is dead, so i won't be able to swap any dll's for the tes
