Hey everybody, I got a key when the man himself was handing them out... I ran the demo fine (This was awhile ago though) however now when I try to run SPAZ it won't launch. It will show the swirly "thinking" circle-Stop-A moment later show it again, then nothing at all.

I have the Asus G73, windows seven, graphics cards updated. I have restarted my computer, re-installed, checked cache integrity, turned off my firewall for a moment, disabled steam cloud, went to the folder itself and ran as administrator, but I cannot for the life of me figure this out! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

*Edit-I also turned off any Anti-virus, no go. =[

Code:

I am going to contact Steam. We have had about 8 reports of this. It is a real mystery since it it working fine for 99.9% of people. But something is definitely up somewhere.

Steam is reporting everything is fine on their end. Do you mind taking a screenshot of what you are seeing so I can send it to them?

There is actually nothing that happens, like I would just be taking a picture of the start up box. What happens is:

1. I double click it, my steam icon goes green and says I am playing the game.
2. The "preparing to launch" box comes up, stays on for about 5 seconds.
3. The green icon goes back to blue, it says I am not playing the game anymore.
4. Thats it, as above I have tried everything!

That log stays the same no matter what i've done.

If there is any other info you need to know, I can tell you no problem.

I also have and Asus G73 SW.

When Steam has a solid internet connection, things always work great to launch SPAZ.
This past week I went without internet due to vacation and traveling. Without internet, Steam would not launch properly or work offline. I couldn't launch SPAZ either.
I tried many things and can't remember exactly how I got SPAZ to work.... but if I remember right, I had to go into task manager to ensure all steam applications were stopped. Then I went into the SPAZ folder to launch spaz manually. I got it to work after trying many things.
