    I have been having trouble trying to load a game. I launch it from steam and I have tried all methods such as verifying the game files, restarting computer, etc. Whenever I try to open it steam will try to download Microsoft Visual c++ redistributable, getting almost done until it displays some error code. Then steam continues the download and when it finishes it brings up the directX version selector. I hit go ahead and it will open the flash launcher but after that the game fails to open, and sometimes I will have to restart my laptop because steam will say that it is running while it is closed. A recent development is that I will for a split second see the first time setup screen and then it will go away and start at the DirectX selector screen. Any suggestions? -Max

    :)
