Question Game screen doesn't pop up

HI all,

I'm trying to run Steam from an external HD. I've followed the instructions the GUIDE and also created symlinks etc. When Steam opens, I click play on CS Go and it says running, but the game screen doesn't pop up.

Any tips?
I've got a macbook air with Sierra.

That guide is old, you don't need symbolic links anymore since Steam has proper support for multiple libraries on different drives now. Just go into the Steam settings then the Downloads tab and you can create a library on your external hard drive
