Tropic 4 not starting AT ALL
Hey my Tropic 4 steam special edition is having trouble launching. Whenever I
click play it says it is going to start the game through the small square box
that pops up but then the box disappears and nothing happens....At all. It just
disappears and nothing even pops up in my task manager. I have already tried
running it with steam community, I have verified the cache and I have installed
the direct X that is located in the games files. Does anyone know how to fx this?

-Thanks

It might be a problem with the launcher. Try disconnecting from the internet before starting it. You can reconnect after starting the game and still make use of the onliny functions.

Father had same problem, fixed it by trying to launch it from local content folder tropico.exe.
Said "error d3dx9_41.dll not found". googled it, downloaded dll fixer, and boom now its working.
