AngelRay said: Didn't work and worst, the launcher is now not launching at all due to "general error". Verifying stellaris installation now in steam.It's possible, but why then would it not affect every user running the launcher?
Ok after uninstalling the (manualy as on the reddit thread) installed launcher, then reinstalling it when starting the stellaris game, it is back, but still "you seem not connected". In English it uses other words, but the idea is the same.
The only "consequence" seems to be: not having the news in the launcher so... isn't the error on your part, paradox??
What firewalls do you have in use? In Windows Defender make sure stellaris.exe , and Paradox Launcher.exe are allowed through both the Public and Private domains.
