ISSUE: Empty game folder
Hi! Recently I have purchased the game and tried to start it...
So, after choosing the directory where to install Jedi Outcast, everything seems ok but the game in the library looks like it has been downloaded immediately..

Anyway, trying to launch I have got the window to choose whether I'm going to play Single or Multiplayer. Choosing any of them I've got a steam error message: " Failed to start the game (missing executable). "

After looking at the game directory it seems steam didn't download the game. Although, he created the game folder and in the library it looks like the game doesn't need to be updated or something else.

For some individuals, please, keep things, like "whether it is enough storage space, windows problems, verifying the game files etc. to yourselves." Thank you.

Will appreciate if somebody knows the answer.. The fact I have bought the game and it doesn't work bothers me a bit :(

You bought MAC version (which has SteamPlay button, so it should work without any doubts) - it happened same to me but Steam doesn't give a single **** about us and about 200 other people who got robbed. You won't be able to play it sadly, the same thing happened to me :/. I wrote to them but all I got was copy+past solution after 3 WEEKS of sending the message. Pathetic.

LOL is this some kind of a joke? LMAO are you serious??? ......

Yes... Trust me, I was same mad as you. You can write to them and fight, but seriously... they are just sending a product they have no data for. No files available. It's pathetic. Sorry for you man. When I sent them a message they answered after 3 weeks just with copy pasta.

ok.... well.. there is probably a solution. We need someone who actually HAS the game files. Then we just copy them on our machines and that's it! I assume, this should work.

Are you sure it's legal tho? :) I mean, Steam isn't the one that gives us the files. Kinda same as pirate version. The other point of view is we bought it, so we have rights to play it.

Well, regarding the policy - I am not sure it is legal, on the other hand, you are right, we have obtained legal copy of the game - but there is literally NO game (because, game consists of files, right?) so this is ILLEGAL what they are doing. We could easily sue them for this, if there is a really enormous amount of people who got robbed by them.

How about asking them if we can copy the files? I mean, we bought the game, and they give us 0 bytes of files, but still, they have money, we have game, shouldn't we be able to play it? Maybe ask the support if it's fine?

Well, I actually was expecting they to answer here lol, should I inform them somewhere else, don't you know? Cause I am not sure If I know where I should make a post regarding this issue..

Go to help -> technical support and make a ticket. Tell them all the details, and ask if we can use the our files. I'd really appreciate it, maybe u will be more lucky and u will have ur not copy-past answer in less then 3 weeks :P

Valve won't help. Been there done that. I actually contacted Aspyr (publishers of the Mac version). They claimed that they were going to try and get this mess straightened out with Valve after the new year. We are still in January, so we still have a sliver of hope. :)
