:arrow_forward: ISSUE

could not talk in game at all with ingame chat due to steam friends is disconnected. cannot sign back in, so close steam restart steam and steam friends is now online, alt tab back into the game type ANYTHING, game closes to desktop.

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Here’s how to reproduce the issue:

  1. in game playing, closes steam by terminate exe or just closes it.
  2. game still runs just can no longer chat in game
  3. restart steam, tab back into game and type anything in chat
  4. game closes to desktop

@GMEvangelos I think this is a rather serious issue to do with both steam and the game that needs fix and collaboration. A game can’t chat because steam friend is offline, game chat should not be affected in game because some are not even friends you’re playing with.

further more, restarting steam and try to type anything in chat crashes the game to desktop which is another major bug.
