4.10 beta HF2 - crash, restart, game not found in Steam - LIkely Steam issue with workaround.

This is a weird one.

I launched the game, and at some point in the loading process the display shut off and I couldn't recover it (alt-tab, etc. did nothing).

So I shut down the computer and restarted. When I got back into Steam, X4 was no longer apparently installed. All the files are in the right place, but Steam didn't recognize the install anymore.

Are there any logs that would be useful here? I honestly have no idea what happened. (It happened to me once before, on the 4.0 beta.)

That's a steam bug that happens sometimes when games crash. Tell it to re-install, and it will simply re-discover the game already on your disk.

One other thing that may be worth mentioning is that Steam has been having intermittent technical issues over the last few hours, and that may in some way have contributed.

Ok, good to know! I thought it was important to mention since the only two times this has ever happened for me, in the past 5 years of owning a Windows PC, was with X4 4.0 beta and X4 4.1 beta.
