Problem when I exit the game.
Just bought the game today and loving it. Only problem shows up when I exit the game, return back to my steam library, and click play. I always get a message saying that the game is already running when it's not. Anyone know how to fix this? I even check my task manager and the only program running is steam, but not the game. I would stop the process but I cant find the game's process on my task manager.

I'm having the same exact problem. The only way I fixed it is by task manager, ending steam, and re-enter into steam.

Are you sure you're not clicking on it too quickly? Steam will tell you a game is still running if it's in the process of performing a Steam Cloud sync.

Yeah I am having this issue too. No clue why, but it just says I am constantly playing the game even when I am out of it.

It's not that, 30 mins after I quit the game steam still claims that it is running. Steam's suggestion of fixing the problem does not work fyi. They say to delete the appache folder found in steam so that it will re-download it next time you run steam. You can try it but it did not work for me.

I get this with SimCity 4 and Street Fighter x Tekken. With the former, the game is in fact still running in the background and I have to kill it via the task manager. IDK why. With the latter, I just have to attempt to run the game once while Steam is stuck in the "In-Game" state and it will exit out.

You should be able to remap your logitech device if you go to configure instead of play. Change the keys, then exit it all. It should save.

Uh........ I've been wondering. Has anyone tried completely deleting the game and re-downloading it again?

I'm also having this problem. But I didn't at first. I think it started happening after I changed the settings so that it would run in "Window/Fullscreen" mode instead of regular fullscreen.

im having the same problem,but i think this might help.
1 after you exit the game open task manager.
2 go to the processes tab.
3 scroll up or down until you find ASN _App_PcDx9_Final.exe
4 click End Process.
5 there should be another dialog box just click yes.
6 open Steam.
7 try to run the game again.
let me know if this helps,it works for me.

Actually before April began the problem just stopped for me. I dont know if it was an update or something that fixed it but it has not happened to me again.
