I know this is the wrong forum, but technical support wont let me start a topic. I played AP for a while, then quit, then came back an hour later, but now the game wont even start! I go to both steam and the exe, but nothing happens! It pops up in processes, but disappears after a minute. know anyway to fix it?

Try having Steam verify the integrity of the game.. see if that works..

You should always have the most up to date drivers on your system.. that's the first rule of troubleshooting. Wink

It would be very hard to pinpoint the exact cause of your issue without knowing your exact system setup, and OS setup. The list of things that 'can' be wrong is longer than my arm.

I just tried to start a new topic myself in tech support, and I had no trouble. You should try again, and be sure to read the stickys at the top, so you are posting within that forum's guidelines, and so that you are giving them the information they need to try and help you.

Might not hurt to search through all the threads and see if anyone has had a similar problem, you might very well find the answer there.

Sorry I can't help more, just didn't want to leave you hanging. Tech Support, of course, is not my thing...

You cant post in tech support if you havent registered your game. The OP hasnt.

Like tech support, no one is going to be able to help unless you post a DXdiag. Put it inside Code tags.

Have you tried shutting down you your computer, then cold starting it ? In theory, that should allow the game to restart if its just something gone wrong that is temporary. If not, then something is corrupted.

Correct.

Please register your game in your forum profile. If you have done so, send a PM to one of the moderators, so your topic can be unlocked and moved to the Technical Support forum.
