Crash on startup?

I recently installed FF2.4 from one of the links in the wiki, and installed it. Whenever I try to run it, it says something along the lines of "Platform failed to intilize", and after that when i try to run it it says "This game is currently not available". I have Halflife 2, Source SDK, source SDK base, and can run source games. Also, after that first FF startup i get the same game not available error.

What should I do?

Thanks

Uninstall then reinstall? If that doesn't work uninstall steam and then re-install, imo.

I hope you dl 2.4 full client side, and not the patch.
Oh and un-installing re-installing steam itself would be a retarded move, plus doesn't rly make sense to do all that, for just one game not working. gt i love you .....nub!

Send a message via AIM to squeek.
Another, easier, thing to try:

In Steam, go to File -> Settings. Then go to the "In-game" tab and uncheck "Enable Steam Community In-Game" (or check it and then uncheck it again).

That should fix it, hopefully. I was recently experiencing the same crash.
