Can I stop the program from asking me to join Steam?

Fans of Legions of Steel - a boardgame designed by Clark Browning, Marco Pecota and Derrick Villeneuve – will be happy to know that the French developers from Studio Nyx have revived the eternal war between the Empire of the Machines and the factions from the Milky Way.

Can I stop the program from asking me to join Steam?

Hi

After patching to 1.01 each time I start the game the screen minimizes and a Steam login screen appears.... Can I stop this somehow?

If you have Steam version the game then you need to be logged at Steam when playing.
Please check the following guide on how to play in offline mode:

non-steam version bought it from matrix.... this separate log-in screen minimizes the game screen and only started after the 1.01 patch. I can close the steam log-in screen and then enlarge the minimized game but this really shouldn't be happening with non-steam version.

Thanks.

Hi jack54,

We found the problem. There are two files in the installation folder that shouldn't be there. You just have to remove them, it's steam_api.dll and SteamworksNative.dll.

This is what you have now:

And this is what you should have:

We informed Slitherine in order to make a new installer without the two files for the version 1.0.1. Thanks for your time!
