the launcher just says steam is offline or not running
- Operating System
- Windows 10 x64
- Operating System Version
- not sure
ive verified files
redownloaded the game twice
According to RPT logs the actual Game's connection to Steam is working fine. So just the Launcher isn't working right.
I don't think I have ever seen anyone install Steam to the Desktop 🤔 that might be related
Arma is reporting that Arma - and presumably also Steam - is installed directly in the desktop folder of your user profile. As in, the actual game installation is located on your desktop, not just a shortcut to it.
Installing entire programs directly to your desktop is not really recommended, not just in Arma terms but, like, at all. It's best to use a dedicated folder somewhere on your hard drive; the Windows default is its Program Files folders, and that's a perfectly fine place.
If Arma is not actually installed directly on your desktop, it's probably worth checking on why it thinks it is.
