[INFO] Cannot open US2 via shortcut
« on: September 22, 2014, 08:12:04 AM »
When I try to open US2 it makes a small window in the top-center of my screen (Although it should be formatted to fit the whole screen), flashes, and disappears. US2 then appears as "Quit" in my dock.

However, if I open it anywhere in Steam it'll do they same thing as above (except disappear).

Idk what all this means but I'm concerned.

Try Alt+Enter when you open it, this way it'l probably go fullscreen

Other option, Right click on US 2 from your steam library, click on properties then open " Set Lunch options" Then type in "-fullscreen" without the ", then click on Ok and try lunching it

>> You can also do the same thing, but this time, Properties > Local files > Verify Integrity Of Game Cache
This will clean up any bad-files and re-download them again

You're on a Mac...
Try deleting the shortcut... open from steam and re-add the shortcut.
You can also remove the game from your computer and re-install it from Steam... that might also fix this issue.
