I bought star control origins a year or two ago, played it for a few hours, really enjoyed but haven't touched it since. Recently though, I've wanted to visit the game again and play through it. But I can't launch the game. The play button is grayed out on the launcher and I don't know why. I've validated the game files on Steam and recovered 1 missing file, still doesn't work. Does anyone know why?
Sorry to hear you are having trouble.
When the play button is in such a state, the launcher can't find something it expects to.
Perhaps the path of least resistance is to uninstall \ reinstall the game. If you have not yet tried that, please do so and report back.
If you still have issues after, we will work through them.
