Steam says the game is "running" but it doesn't run!



Hello, hello! :D I got Project Zomboid about a week ago to play with my friends, and until now, it's been running perfectly with good fps and minimal lag and such! However, yesterday my game crashe completely, and when I attempted to start it back up again, it wouldn't launch. I currently have the game on steam, and when I hit the 'launch' button, it shows me that my game is running, but the game never actually pops up, and it doesn't appear in my task manager, which leaves me to believe that it doesn't launch at all. Things I've tried:

  • Signing out/back into steam
  • updating drivers, windows, etc.
  • Running PZ as admin
  • Running Steam as admin
  • verifying files
  • uninstalling + reinstalling the game

So far, nothing has worked. :( All my other steam games work just fine, so I'm assuming it's a problem solely with PZ. I really want to be able to play with my friends again, so any and all advice is appreciated!

Can you try using the "Alternate launch" option when launching the game through Steam? If the game fails to start again, can you share your console.txt file, found in C:\Users\YourUserName\Zomboid?
