Problems Launching RS/RO2
I just downloaded RS/RO2 on my friends computer and it wont launch. I right clicked on the icon in the toolbar and clicked run and it said "STEAM required to launch" its weird because I have steam and its fully downloaded. i didnt have this problem with my computer, but i also have RO2 SP, Ro2 MP, and RS Beta. maybe I have to download all of them? if anyone can help with this it would be a greta help.

Steam just randomly does that sometimes. Try restarting Steam or the PC. Also, try launching the game from the Steam client instead of a desktop shortcut.

Wait, so the game is launching? I thought you said a message kept popping up and said that "Steam is required to play this game".

Try this: http://steamcommunity.com/app/35450/discussions/0/846960628198130515/

Also, post the PC specs.

Try lowering the resolution in the .ini file I specify in the FAQ to something low like 800x600 and then launch the game.

I am getting a problem too, it wont load it when i click play on steam. It comes up saying synchronising for a second and then dissaspears again. This is a problem with Steam or RO2 as i have never had a problem with this game before
devanbradley Feb 24, 2014 @ 3:22pm 
how do I get to the .ini file?
Moskeeto Feb 24, 2014 @ 3:24pm 
Read the FAQ.

It's method 2 under the resolutions section.

devanbradley Feb 24, 2014 @ 3:28pm

Try setting it to be exactly your monitor's resolution.
