Nexon Steam Connector isn't working

Been playing Mabinogi on Steam for at least 3 if not 4 or 5 years on Steam now. Was playing fine yesterday afternoon and early evening as well. 12-6pm EST. Then I tried opening the game late evening like 10pm EST and since then I haven't been able to get into the game because the Nexon Steam Connector never resolves.

Instead it sits there with lines of code I don't understand and nothing happens further. The game usually asks me permission to run and I allow it, but now it does not either.

Below is an image of what it looks like, and the spoiler is what the set of code I get is as one example since I'm not sure if it is different every time.

I have already tried restarting my computer, verifying my game files through Steam, uninstalling and reinstalling through Steam, as well as setting 4 .exe files to run as admin in the Mabinogi folder.
The 4 .exe files are 'Mabinogi.exe' 'Client.exe' 'eTracer.aes.exe' 'eTracer.exe'

The things I did in between the last time I played Mabinogi were play LoL, L4D2, and perhaps bluescreen at one point due to a memory error. I don't recall if the bluescreen really happened or not since I get once a week at least.

Thank you for any replies and help.

    Oh my steam started doing this right after we got the recent beauty box. Repaired, reinstalled, tried it on my laptop instead of pc and still had no luck opening it. Just ended up using the nexon launcher since then and still haven’t found a way to connect yet either

    I'm glad that you found an alternative, but I really shouldn't have to use the Nexon launcher when I've had no issues for like half a decade now. Seems like the customer support have no idea what's causing it either since they've mostly given me standard procedure esque sort of solutions like:
    Re-install, run as admin, restart PC, etc.

    Makes me wonder if there's an issue with Steam itself, OR if there's just nobody who can actually troubleshoot this sort of stuff at their company.
