Steam Desktop Shortcut Damaged or Incomplete

Steam Desktop Shortcut Damaged or Incomplete

Postby mjozerov » Tue Oct 13, 2015 10:09 pm

When I installed this game through Steam on my Mac 2015 rMBP a steam window asked if I would like to create a desktop shortcut I said Yes and i checked the box. However the steam desktop shortcut icon it gave me was a blank paper with a circle and a diagonal dash going through the circle and also had a pencil on the icon instead of a normal TWoM icon. When I clicked on the desktop shortcut Icon for TWoM a finder message popped up and said "this came cannot be opened because it is damaged or incomplete." So I cannot open the game via desktop, applications folder, or launchpad if I wanted to because the Shortcut Icon is damaged or incomplete. And when I tried to browse local files through the properties option on steam to do some troubleshooting, I found the application for TWoM in its folder with a bunch of other game files. And when I clicked on the game app it would momentarily open up and close for about a half second without even allowing the game window to open, but I could see on the top menu bar on my Mac This war of Mine pops up but it goes away almost instantly. Basically I would Like to know how to create a desktop shortcut that works because mine is broken and there is no way of opening it besides through steam which does work fine. I know it might be silly to worry about this but I was just wondering if this is only me, and why would steam give me a broken desktop shortcut that I cannot use. I tried uninstalling reinstalling deleting local content about ten times steam still gives me a damaged desktop shortcut. The game does not appear in my applications either there is no way to access the game besides steam. Please help would be much appreciated. Thanks for taking the time. Best regards. Matt.
