Beyond Incredible!!!!!!! I wish I had time to play PC!!!!! Sadly, I am turning my house into a Shakespearean haunt for 200 people.
I think like I live like I work like I love.....voluminous and disjointed. Get used to it.

that sounds cool/fun!!! I used to do that...outside only. Was on a haunted house tour and would hundreds of people and cars drive by and explore my yard every night for 2 weeks each year. Also forced be to basically buy stock in Halloween candy as I had to give away hundreds of $$$ worth each year...but the kids and parents loved it. Theme changed a bit over the years, but was mostly a haunted pirate seaside graveyard.

Hey guys - -wanted to provide an update. I am very nervous right now that I may never play PlanCo again. Just built this great new system with high hopes that it will run PlanCo and PZ better than I have ever seen. The first thing, and only thing I loaded was Steam, and then Planco. Loaded fine, went into a few smaller parks to test the waters and things seemed a lot smoother. Jump to the next day...the damn game will not launch anymore. I believe I tried everything.
Totally removed and reloaded the game and Steam...several times.
Cleared the load cache per instructions on Steam
Verified file several time per instructions on Steam.
Viewed like what seems like 100 YT videos on how to fix this problem and nothing seems to work.
Its been 5 days of total frustration trying to get the game to launch again.
Game seems to download fine...takes a while and the progress looks fine. I can see my game folders out there and saved files (from Steam are out there).
I seriously don't know what else to do. As far as I can tell Steam doesn't offer any type of support for this.

Side note. The only other game I have out there is RCTW (no peanut gallery comments please)...reloaded and launched this game fine, so it seems to be isolated to PC.

Sadly, I don't know what to do anymore.
Tips??? Something that will work?

Wish I could help, wowman. But I have little-to-no experience with Steam. I have a Steam account, for when I was keeping track of Theme Park Studio back in the day (no peanut gallery comments about that either, please). I'm guessing you did a complete shutdown of your computer, including shutting off/disconnecting your internet connection box thingy? (not just a Restart)

Could it be a Windows verification thing? Where, Steam is looking for some sort of verification and your computer is so new that the thing Steam is looking for isn't there yet?

I wonder if doing a System Restore to the day (if it exists) that the game launched okay would help.

What sort of Antivirus do you have? Maybe it's stopping something. Try turning it off?

Really seems weird that it launched the first time but not after. Maybe try rewording your YouTube search. Maybe the 101st time is the charm.

That's terrible. And very strange that it ran once with no problems. Have you contacted Frontier to see if they can give you any help?

That sucks wowmanrct.
Few things that come to my mind.

- Can you install it on another harddisk
-Are there files of frontier development in the appdata folder left?
-Are there files of frontier development left in the documents folder
-If so trie to delete those and uninstall the game (just make a backup to be sure)
-You can trie to set a different steamlibrary path , so it will make a new folder

Does it leave a error message behind when it does crash.
And can you describe the crash bit better (does screen goes black) or is it just like alt-tab out of game etc.
Hope we can fix this problem

      I tried this as well and it seemed to be even worse as it seems to be looking for it on the C drive. Not tech smart enough to understand how this all works.

-Are there files of frontier development in the appdata folder left?
Couldn't find this specific folder name, but any folders with 'app' in them do have files in them. I also see all the saves games and files in my user folder
 
-Are there files of frontier development left in the documents folder
yes - my saved files are out there.

-If so trie to delete those and uninstall the game (just make a backup to be sure)
I did this several times. deleted folders, deleted the game, uninstalled the game uninstalled Steam, and then started over from scratch...several times.

-You can trie to set a different steamlibrary path , so it will make a new folder
Not sure what you are saying to do here. My buddy always laughs at me about stuff like this. He says I can be really technical most of the timer, but then a simple task (something like this), I become the dumbest box of rocks on the planet)

Does it leave a error message behind when it does crash.
No error...and its not even like a crash. I click the play the game button or try to open the game even from the execute icon...and the little window opened up saying the game is launching...for a few seconds...and then the box closes...and nothing happens. In Steam where you see the list of your games...it does briefly change the status to 'syncing' and then to 'running', but the game doesn't open up and look like its running. The game stats show my total hours played...and the last time played as the current day. SO, its like Steam thinks the game opened and I played it, but it never really opens.

I will take some screen shots and even record this series of events to share later today.

And can you describe the crash bit better (does screen goes black) or is it just like alt-tab out of game etc.
See the full description in the last question.
Hope we can fix this problem

Man I really hope you are able to find a solution! I remember the years dealing with that back in the hey day of rct where I would get a new video card and the game would have issues. I wish I could give you some advice man.

Well think it`s gonna be a trial and error game to get it working.
But your description help to narrow it down.
Make sure to make a list what you have tried and what didnt work (found that out the hard way)

This is just a copy-paste from the frontier site.
Though on a side-node , don`t know what game it was but steam overlay was crashing that game instantly.
Disabled it , and it did work. Same can go with monitoring software such as Fraps and Msi Afterburner.
This come`s from Frontier themself:

Run the DXSETUP.exe installer found in this folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Planet Coaster\_CommonRedist\DirectX\Jun2010
Switch to Fullscreen mode in the graphics options and disable the Steam overlay for Planet Coaster.
To do so, right-click the game title in your Steam Library, click on "Properties" and uncheck "Enable Steam Community In-Game" in the "General" tab.

My heart goes out... back in May I bought a new computer (high-end, especially the graphics card) and it kept shutting off while playing PC.   Hours of tech support could not find the issue, finally I gave up and returned it, went back to my previous desktop.   Then a couple weeks ago I tried again with some slightly lesser specs, and this one would trigger the reset on my GFCI outlet every time I tried to power on, thus killing the outlet until I pushed the button.   Finally got an electrician out yesterday and it seems that GFCI outlets are not compatible with some of these new machines.  He switched it back to an ungrounded 3-prong outlet and now I seem to be fine.  A relatively easy and inexpensive fix that took months to decode, and I hope you end up with a similar success story.  We shouldn't have to be afraid of buying new computers!!  :wacko:

Update - I tried recording the process today and was going to do screen shots to show what was going...and low and behold - the stupid game launched without a problem. I really don't get this. For 5 days nothing...now its like nothing was wrong...and I did nothing new since yesterday.

I also opened a park, but its not my current versions, so I now have to figure out how to get my backed up saves into the right folder/s to be back where I left off before I started this madness.

That's great news! Except, you're probably thinking "Don't know what caused it in the first place; don't know how it fixed itself; don't know if it's gonna happen again." Cross yer fingers and hope for the best. I wonder if it was something like I suggested in my post, above: Maybe the newness of your computer lacked the thing that Steam was looking for. After several days, that thing (whatever it was) got automatically downloaded, like Windows verifying that it (Windows) is a legal copy, or something. Or maybe Steam was trying to communicate with some file on your old computer, and couldn't find it on your new computer. Just guessing.

Here are a few last night shots of this land that I taken before all my game issues. Want to try to keep feeding some park stuff as I can.
