After Exit Game, Steam still thinks Conan Is running

Game mode: Online private
Type of issue: Bug
Server type: ERPvP
Region: North America

When i exit the game, Steam will continue to think Conan is still running, even well after Windows no longer registers Conan Running int he Task Manager. Only think i can do is force Close Steam and then log back in.

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:
1.While in game - Either ESC --> Exit Game, or Go to Steam and hit STOP
2. Wait 5 minutes… 20 minutes… whatever
3. …?
4. Steam still thinks Conan is Running even though it’s not.

Thank you.

I probably should mention that someone else on my server experiences the same thing. I mentioned it in Global and they let me know they have the same issue.

This seems to have cropped up after the patch this past monday and has been going on for a few days now.

Thank you.

And just as a test, I let it sit all night after posting that, and Steam STILL thinks Conan is still running.

If windows task manager doesn’t show an instance of Conan running on your machine, but steam does
it’s a good indicator that this is a steam issue.

Maybe try reinstalling steam or troubleshooting steam.

I’ll try that, but seeing as it wasn’t doing it for any other games, just this one, I thought someone here ought to know about it as well in case something happened with the last patch. As it started after this last patch happened.

Hey @NetRaven

Do you use any mods?

Hey guys it is a steam related issue I have multiple other games my biggest ones are the total war series and a few more but it is steam related because I have ce on Xbox not my pc hope that helps but even if you click the stop button which you shouldn’t because it can freeze steam but it takes a minute to stop

We do. This is online server:


I did follow Droch-aon’s advice and reinstalled steam…
OMG WHY…!!! Lost all my addon fashion saves from IQoL, and also had to re-download EVERYTHING! This should be a LAST ditch effort thing to do.

And it sucks that I can’t change the Steam Library folder on my C:Drive so I can’t keep my library separate and intact if I have to reinstall steam again.

But I guess the good news is that steam doesn’t seem to think Conan is running still when I close it. So that’s something, I guess.

I apologize, I should have been clearer and mentioned needing to move the games to a separate steam library.
