Portal 2 shuts down at the start or loading screen.
So it looks like im not the only one who has this problem. The portal 2 shuts down without any errors or something. It just comes back to desktop. IDK what to do. Im trying to verify Portal 2 files by now. Any solutions ?

no fix yet. you're lucky it only crashes to desktop, a lot of us have it crashing straight to reboot

Ok so I solved it myself I think. I was trying to verify Portal 2 files and it worked for me. You should try too. If you dont know how: Choose Portal 2, second mouse button, properties and in one of the tabs is verify steam cache files or portal 2 files. Wait for it to complete and try to play.

trick that worked for me : i noticed that the game does not launch if i've already launched an app that uses "overlay" thing such has skype or mumble client. When i close em P2 starts.

Like I said. I verifyied game files and it worked for me. Do that and the problem should be gone. NOTE: Do not reinstall the game bcs it wont help. You will only waste your time
