I have a serious issue. I pre-ordered the game and was all excited when it came out over a week ago.
I have still not been able to play it.
When I try to launch (through steam, the shortcut, or by running Rome 2. exe), a steam window pops up that says "preparing to launch Total War- Rome 2..." and does nothing. The window closes, and NOTHING HAPPENS. When I try to click on the Rome 2 launcher in the Rome 2 folder, it says that I'm not connected to steam, EVEN THOUGH I'M CONNECTED TO STEAM!!!!!
As a side note, when I installed (steam said it installed correctly), and clicked "Run Rome 2 total war" it got to step 5/10 of the initial setup before doing the same thing. The window closed, and nothing happened...
I've tried most of the solutions on these forums, (full lobotomy, log-in-log-out, ever patch available...), and NOTHING. While I feel that moaning about the game has been quite adequately covered by my fellow forum-dwellers, i still am compelled to say:
WHY CAN'T ANYTHING JUST FREAKING WORK!!!!!!!!!!!????????????????
