game does not launch from steam
Every since I got this game, other than the first couple of times, the game has refused to run when launched through steam. The game .exe file runs, and then nothing happens. I have to manually go into task manager and stop the exe file so I could try to re-launch it, otherwise I get an error saying the file is already running. I did all the suggestions listed on steam, checked file integrity, deleted and re-installed etc. nada. I tried contacting steam support, and waited weeks for a response. I went to stardock forums, and got immediate response: stop running it through steam, the game doesn't need it. Problem solved. Weeks later I received a very un-useful response from steam, I went through their suggestions and it didn't help. I'm not really sure why it won't run through steam and runs fine without it. What really got me annoyed was Steam's horrible customer support however, and really wanted to post that. I've never had issues running games through here before, so I've never had to use their customer service, but it's the sort of experience that now makes me want to buy games direct from the store again. I'm lucky this game ran without steam this time, if it didn't I'd be out my money and have no playable game. Unacceptable!
