    Hey RD and Reiza.

    After upgrading my GSCE to the steam version I can't run a dedicated server and play at the same time. Whenever I try to Launch the game after started a server I get a popup that says ""Failed to start game (app already running)"

    Is there a way around this or did I screw myself over? If I did, is there a way to revert to the non steam version?

    Just start the "GSC Dedicated.exe" from within your GSC Steam Install folder.
    (Most likely: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\Common\Stock Car Extreme)

    I don't have the ports open to test 100%, but i was able to run the server and not have Steam say "In Game: Stock Car Extreme" and could launch the game just fine.
