  1. so im having a weirdf issue my steam client won't launch with games, the game will launch but then asks for steam to be running it only happens if i use the game icons on the desktop if i launch from steam itself everything is fine

  2. Skyrim VR is SUCH a nightmare. Thats the reason i jsut dont like PC VR. Half of the game just dont run properly and sometimes it take hours to make them run.

  3. I am having an issue with Deceit on Steam. I played it without any problems year ago and then it stopped working. I verified files, I uninstalled and installed multiple times and still it doesn't even launch. I will update it with the next steps helped. Other games work fine. I uninstalled steam, rebooted, installed the game and still the same problem. I really like Deceit. It is perfect for a fast round after work before the bed time. If anyone has any idea please reply here.
