Issue Title: Game Crash Before Startup/Won't Launch

Issue Description: I've installed the game, and it wouldn't launch. Then I uninstalled the game (deleted all local files), reinstalled, and again, it won't launch.

I also refreshed all local steam files (via a suggestion from someone on here) and it still hasn't fixed. I know that the game works on Mac as it works just fine on my boyfriend's computer.

My specs:

Processor: 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7

Memory: 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4000 512 MB

Software: Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 (11G63b)

My log.txt file:

Starting Up

Version: 130891

Don't Starve Together: 130891 OSX_STEAM

Build Date: 2015-03-19_14-34-17

Parsing commandline

Command Line Arguments: -psn_0_319566

Initializing Steam

Steam must be running to play this game (SteamAPI_Init() failed).

Error, Steam failed to initialize, result=1...

The application will now exit

Shutting down

From every account that I see on here, I should be just fine to play - I'm confused. Please help!

Steps to Reproduce: Try to open the game. (Double-clicked icon, right clicked to open, created desktop shortcut, created application shortcut, opened from steam. Nothing worked.)

I deleted Steam (left local files, though) and reinstalled, and now it works.


Still, that's only a workaround for me - I hope it helps other people, too, but I really hope that gets patched.

Hi Marni,


I'm glad that you were able to get playing. We were just looking at this issue last week and it looks like it's unfortunately a steam problem, not with DST. For anyone else experiencing this issue, I may have found another solution a bit less severe than uninstalling/reinstalling Steam.
