I downloaded the newest TWoM update on Steam. I ran the test that said all files were intact. It just says failed to start game. Any help would be appreciated.

trevarty,

Can you do the following and give me the output of the console please;

OS X

1. Go into Finder -> Applications
2. Right-click on TWoM Application -> select "Show package contents"
3. Go to folder Contents -> MacOS
4. Then you should see "This War of Mine"
5. Double Click the file and it will open a console and start the game.
6. Collect the output after you close the game out.

Windows

1. Navigate to your Library
2. Right-click "This War of Mine" on the list
3. Select "Properties"
4. In the "General" tab click the "Set launch options" button
5. Enter the following exact value (with the minus character!):
-console
6. Start TWoM and get as far as you can with the game and then close or quit if able.
7. Navigate to your Library
8. Right-click "This War of Mine" on the list
9. Select "Properties"
10. In the "Local files" tab click the "Browse local files" button
11. Locate the file "ConsoleOutput.htm" and post or PM the file or contents.

Please attach, PM or post the output.

This output will help determine what is causing the game to not run.
