Given that those two games use the same installation of the same launcher, it's a puzzle why one sees this and the other does not.

I don't see any relevant errors in those logs. Has this game always been like this for you, or it was okay up to some point?

What happens if you hit IGNORE on there?

If you make a new Windows user on this machine and log into it with that, do you still see this issue?

Sorry, my last update was dumb.

Try disconnecting the machine from the internet then starting the game up. Once n the main menu, reconnect the internet. Does that work okay then?

Two weeks...
Why don’t you fix the bugs related to launching the game, why are they not a priority?
Did the above workaround not help you?

Have you opted into the beta of the next patch?

[DEV TEAM] 3.10.2 "Pyxis" Steam Open Beta

Hello! We've just released an update to the Stellaris Test branch on Steam, containing the 3.10.2 patch that is currently in certification for release later this week. Of particular note, this release includes a fix to a common MacOS crash (that... forum.paradoxplaza.com forum.paradoxplaza.com

I tried it 3 different ways, no go
(Also with the new update)
That is disappointing, that means you have a different issue to everyone else. Quite what I do not know!


Please do a full **clean** re-install, now the new patch is out:

- move any valued save games elsewhere, and user empire designs.txt from /Documents/Paradox Interactive/Stellaris/ if you have made any custom empires or races.
- "uninstall" in Steam-Stellaris
- manually delete both the Steam/SteamApps/common/Stellaris AND Documents/Paradox Interactive/Stellaris folders - In particular you need to make sure there are no files or folders left under either the Steam Stellaris or Documents Stellaris locations, before installing again.
- re-install game in Steam, run a Steam Verify when done.
- start the game with no mods active and test


If that doesn't help:

Please attach here your Documents/Paradox Interactive/Stellaris/settings.txt and pdx_settings.txt .
From your Documents/Paradox Interactive/Stellaris/logs/ folder, attach here system.log , error.log , exceptions.log .

Also in Steam please click on Steam-Help-System Info, and paste everything there into a text file and attach that here.

Yes, definitely. But we see the orange dot up the top-right there, which means it has installed an update.

2023.15 have been confirmed to fix the launcher startup issue we had in Linux under 2023.14. Why you get such problems with it I do not know!

The launcher also seems to have problems creating a log file, because I don't have one in .local/share/Paradox Interactive/launcher-v2/logs.
Hmmmm, they should definitely be there:
  • $XDG_DATA_HOME/Paradox Interactive/launcher-v2/logs/ (if $XDG_DATA_HOME is set)
  • ~/.local/share/Paradox Interactive/launcher-v2/logs/ (if $XDG_DATA_HOME is not set)
Maybe a file system access issue?

I had a similar report last week, whether here or in a ZenDesk ticket I don't recall. Like you, I don't know how Steam decides what OS you have.

What distro do you use? The previous case was on one I hadn't come across before.
