Game does not start
I keep trying to open the game to start but the window will appear for about 1 second then close.Eventually it will say "Failed to start app already running" but nothing will actually be going on. Any one have a problem like this?

Mac or Linux?
Cause I have yet to see this problem on a windows computer.
Also have you tried running Towns by using the Towns.exe/.cmd located in the Towns Directory?

Windows

did you try what jack said here, to run the game not through steam, but directly from the towns exe, where the game is installed?

If it does not work you need to find the crash log, here is how to find it:

I get:
Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.

Awesome! And verify game cache doesn't fix it.

Try uninstalling all java versions that you have (this is very important), and than instal the last version of java (sometimes there are more different java's installed at the same time. Be sure that you uninstalled all versions of java, check all the programs you have installed. Also when installing java if you use 64bit OS, instal java for 64bit system and similar.

Had the same issue, do a complete uninstall and a fresh install of Java, worked for me
