FATAL ERROR (Weird)


#1

I don’t how how this happened but my Steam copy of the game is now issuing this:

“Steam must be running to play this game. (SteamAPI_init() failed.)”

The weird thing is that the Steam App is running, even on the background, but it STILL refuses to start.
Is there a fix for such a -should i call it- glitch?
Please Help!


#2

Restart
If that doesn’t work, maybe try opening the steam window
And if that doesn’t work too… well idk


#3

Yes, a proper restart of Steam fixes this. If not, restart your computer.


#4

OK. It appears that the Steam app forgot that it was in the Open Beta sessions though, possibly due to one too many forced shutdowns. I think i’ll have a little talk with both my elder sister and my younger niece -and possibly with our local power and electric company- on the subject…
Besides, it is now running great, specially in UE Beta mode.
