Ok this problem above is getting worse, my ex-partner is running on the same router as me with no problems yet I can't join a multiplayer game or even start a single player game now. The top right of the main menu shows as red lines (not green) so this I'm guessing is no connection to hive, so I understand you don't need the internet to play this game in single player so why can't I start a single player game any more?
Myself and my ex are running the exact same java (64 bit) running wired from the same router and almost have identical computers (only difference is gpu's, here's is the Nvidia 550 Ti and mines the Nvidia 660, she was running the Nvidia 650 Ti boost till it died on here a few weeks back). So has there been a work around for this problem, I have restarted steam, restarted my computer, verified the files and nothing is working. Normally when this happened I simply restarted the game and all was well again, but now nothing works.
