[GOG] [39.67.5] Game doesn't start. Steam must be running to play this game.

Recommended Posts

Game does not start after recent update.

Following message pops up:

 

Fatal Error

Steam must be running to play this game (SteamAPI_Init() failed).

 

Edit: 

Found a workaround on the GOG forums:

Open the file 'ProjectZomboid64.site.json' using notepad and edit this line, from '"-Dzomboid.steam=1", to '"-Dzomboid.steam=0", saved it and fired up the game.

My fault, as I relied on Steam to provide a fresh, virgin copy -- forgetting that it wouldn't purge extraneous files. A json file for debugging issues with the GC (.site.json) was left in. 

 

Sorry, everyone. Will keep an eye out for it in the future.
