Cannot launch on Windows 10[edit]

Zero Day Protection software in place can have issues connecting on Windows 10, making the game impossible to launch.
Fix this lockout
  • Go to install location
  • Delete the ZDP folder as well as RaccoonCity.exe.zdp, RaccoonCity.exe.cat, and RaccoonCity.exe.cfg.
  • Install the patch. The Steam version already includes this patch.

Notes

  1. Games for Windows - LIVE DRM features: SSA+ZDPP activation, supports local profiles.
  2. 2.0 2.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/209100/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (209100) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
