Since October, I have been unable to launch into the game via Steam. Not sure what's going on there, but I've experience two different errors in this time. The first, which I no longer see, was this:
But around February of this year, I began receiving this error instead:
I've tried playing around with paths and permissions, running it as administrator, verifying the integrity of the game files and even going so far as to uninstall and reinstall the game multiple times, but I am unsure as to what's caused this. I've made two other forum posts since this all began and I haven't gotten any feedback, but hopefully this will be different, who knows. I just really want to play them game.
Uninstall and reinstall steam. Also probably use a different path? Anyways, that's what worked for me and worked for the guy on Reddit that informed me of this. It's rough, and man I wish I didn't have to do it (and you shouldn't have to, but here we are), but it works.
