I have played TBS1-2 on this PC before(Might have a new graphic card) around when it was new, never played the Beta FYI.
But when i wanted to replay it recently i cant seem to be able to start it :<
**Switched GFX card from an AMD Card to a GTX970**

When i start the game i get a black window that will just stop responding and i have to force close it, if i run it as admit it will pop up and close by itself 1 sec after

Grateful for ANY help :O 1st time reporting any issue with game so if you need any more info just ask ^^

-------
TRIED:
-------
I have tried installing it on different drives.
I have tried updating Nvidia drivers for the GFX card.
I have tried to set launch options and start in window mode.
I have tried reinstalled it X amount of times on steam to no avail.
I have tried Verifying cache finds no problem.


---> Actually SOLVED this by removing steam from my D: drive and doing a fresh install and then also restoring C: drive to fresh install point :D
might have been some trouble i caused when i decided to move my steam install and game directory from C: to D: by copy pasting the folder like a year back -.-
browsed around my C drive and found alot of old game files from when steam was installed on C:, most likely confused since there were old game files from BS1-2 with a C: install point and then a newer with a D: install point ? -.-

ANYWAY! creator of my own mess GG :D

Hmmm... It seems that it's a "SteamAPI_Init" (...whatever that is...) issue. Do check you don't have any BETAS selected (on Steam), as that seems to be forcing a restart.

Here's the portion of the log-file in my ("healthy") case. I marked the part where it deviates from yours:
