Game won't run anymore

I haven't played this game in a long time, so when I went to fire it up, it acts like it's going to start but never does. Any ideas why it won't start? The internet is connected, so maybe it's not talking to their server or something.

How long is a long time? Was it before or after they introduced StormPowered?

You may want to go to the SES site and grab the latest StormPowered client and re-download the game through it. The old DRM no longer actually works, so that may be why.

I'll bet that's what it is, as I've never heard of that "StormPowered".

Thanks, I'll check it out when I get off work.

Yup, they've replaced the original DRM with a Steam-like client. On the plus side, you can now set the game to "offline mode" and not have to deal with internet connection requirements anymore.

Okay, so I finally got off my duff and fixed it. What a hassle though. I downloaded their stormpowered thingy, but did not recognize that i owned the game. Fortunately, for my butt, I still had my email confirming that I bought it.
